This article was written by Gary Carson of Equamark, Houston, Texas, and published in the October 2009 issue of Hydrocarbon Engineering magazine. It reflects on how the need for integration and interoperability in plant design and engineering has led to the democratization of the plant creation process.
You will read about the impact that true project collaboration is having on plant design and engineering, and how tools, such as those developed by COADE, are delivering even greater access and capabilities to many who have traditionally been shut out of the creative process.
COADE's aim is to continue to work on the democratization of the process design and engineering sector, we have made our focus. We hope that you find this article of interst and that it will show that plant creation is an inclusive process; one wherein there is no need to compromise on the quality your input or value of your deliverables.
