Today’s engineering firms compete against competitors who may outsource to “high value engineering centers” on projects where owners demand safe but efficient designs to realize material, transportation and labor cost savings. Following parallel or independent project workflows similar to those of the last30 years leaves your engineering firm at a competitive disadvantage.
EPC’s who’ve adapted a lean project execution strategy through optimized workflows and leveraging technology interoperability between the project disciplines have a way to deliver an efficient, safe and well-coordinated project to their clients, giving them an edge in today’s tight market.
Most of our Intergraph Smart® 3D clients have implemented a lean workflow between their design and pipe stress analysis teams for years. Many of you have heard about the new Steel Connection Design functionality now available inside S3D, and how that data rich model can be leveraged into fabrication, again reducing errors and duplication of effort.
Join us for a look at how your structural engineering staff can join the modern collaborative workflow, no longer working blindly in their silo of material properties, stress, strain, and code checks. We will discuss the various workflows available and take a deeper look into the technology that makes a lean workflow possible for your structural engineers resulting in:
- More efficient structuraldesigns
- Better coordinated projects
- Fewer construction change orders
- Happier clients
This presentation will spotlight not only what technology can do to open the flow of information between engineering and design, but also how users can control that information flow.
Ravi Ozarker is the GT STRUDL Support Consultant for Hexagon PPM. As a structural engineer and engineering software developer for the past 14 years, he has worked for several organizations in different roles, such as consulting engineering, government agencies, semi government agencies, software companies, EPCs, transmission tower design corporations, research universities, and air pollution modeling and monitoring in the U.S. and Canada. This range of experience has given Ravi unique insight into how each of these entities function and what internal processes and bottlenecks one can run into when completing projects under deadlines and with multi-discipline collaboration required.
