Brazil’s Centroprojekt selects AVEVA PDMS to increase design productivity

3D design requirements included the integration of applications for other engineering disciplines


Rio de Janeiro , Brazil - 10 April 2012: AVEVA (LSE:AVV), announced today  that Centroprojekt do Brasil S/A has selected AVEVA as its sole provider of 3D design software for complex engineering projects. Centroprojekt operates across many industries, providing designs for major capital plant projects in the Pulp and Paper, Petrochemical and Chemical industries. AVEVA PDMS met Centroprojekt’s requirements for 3D design and for the integration of all key engineering disciplines, including piping, electrical and instrumentation across a dispersed team of designers.

“We have two sites working at the same time on six different projects. Concurrent multi-location engineering combined with high productivity was a major consideration when we evaluated 3D design software alternatives”, said Jean Carlos Pontel, Detailed Engineering Manager at Centroprojekt. “We need to effectively manage our suppliers, as well as integrate many different disciplines, both of which are offered with AVEVA PDMS. We can increase project productivity through accurate material information, right first time design and reduced rework, all of which avoid significant project delays. Ultimately, AVEVA is helping us to minimize project risks through better quality design and this has a direct and positive impact on the ROI for our business”.

“Previously, Centroprojekt would hire other engineering companies to complete projects using AVEVA PDMS”, added Santiago Pena, Senior Vice President, Latin America, AVEVA. “Following this contract win, we are supporting Centroprojekt to expand their in-house design team through an on-going internal trainee program. Centroprojekt provides an excellent example for the use of our ‘Integrated Engineering & Design’ capability.  Our Change Highlighting and Compare & Update functionality allows project teams to closely integrate design and engineering disciplines throughout the lifecycle of a project and across multiple sites. Centroprojekt and our other customers quickly realise the benefits of our solutions and this is one reason that AVEVA is Latin America’s most popular supplier of engineering design and information management software”.

AVEVA PDMS 3D design software is part of the AVEVA Plant portfolio, delivering maximum design productivity and capability on all types of plant projects, from small upgrades to major new builds. For further information visit
