AVEVA ERM’s Catalogue Manager module focuses on many of the typical engineering management challenges and issues that are encountered when working to critical deadlines. These include:
- The need to quickly develop specifications for early estimates or FEED processes, as well as approving changes by revision.
- Potential pollution of the multi-project catalogue, as a result of inconsistency of descriptions or duplicate coding.
- Making certain that both the 3D design team and fabricators are working with the same descriptions and components as materials management.
AVEVA Planning can significantly reduce project cost and delivery time, increasing business efficiency, profitability and competitive advantage. It achieves this by supporting the assignment of all critical resource requirements, including documents, drawings, material and instructions.
It offers a flexible project planning and control system that effectively integrates with other AVEVA and third-party applications. AVEVA Planning enables users to make decisions and act in relation to up-to-date information. It does so by providing the essential closed-loop feedback between planning and control – even across multiple projects. This makes possible the effective management of resources, as well as the creation of accurate work packages, so promoting maximum schedule adherence and minimum rework in construction.
The AVEVA ERM Material module offers easy access to accurate material information through every stage of a project, from its initial definition, through progressive refinement of all crucial material information, to procurement and on-site delivery.
Smooth integration between planning, design, construction and material management systems empowers both shipbuilders and EPCs to achieve efficient, reliable, cost-effective delivery of high-quality vessels – and projects.
Materials are your greatest expense – and your biggest opportunity. According to McKinsey, material and procurement costs make up 40% of a project’s total installed cost (TIC). CII suggests that approximately 10% of project waste is allocated to expediting materials as a result of change.
The Production module is a comprehensive and powerful solution for the detailed planning, monitoring and control of the entire lifecycles of fabrication and erection tasks – from their initial creation to scheduling and release, right through to the selection, reservation and distribution of materials.
AVEVA Production links planning, materials and resources. It does so through the integrated AVEVA ERM family or third-party applications, in order to enable fabrication and erection tasks to move forward as planned. Construction Work Packages that were created during project planning are divided into smaller activities (jobs and work orders) in construction planning, thus ensuring that Installation Work Packages remain a manageable size.
