Aveva, the IT engineering lifecycle vendor has introduced Vantage Plant Design Review 6.2, a 3D visualisation and plant model review software for the Middle East market.
Targeted at engineers working in plant and marine engineering industries Vantage will help them obtain effective visual feedback from a portrayal of the plant at various stages of the project.
Vantage is the collective name for Aveva’s four-family plant lifecycle product suite. Well known for its Plant Design Management System (PDMS), it also addresses data management, project management, engineering design, visualisation and distributed workflow solutions.
Built on Microsoft’s .NET technology, Vantage Plant Design Review 6.2 anticipates the needs of the reviewing engineer and offers any required information, commands or manipulations upon a mouse click.
“The Middle East has a large number of plant and marine engineering industries. As most applications available so far were designed for IT-savvy engineers, there was an acute need for a solution that could deliver the right level of information to everyone. Review 6.2 is a great leap forward in interactive visualisation, allowing engineers to experience easy, real-time navigation and manipulation of the plant,” says Louay Dahmash, regional director, Middle East, Aveva.
Review also integrates information from third-party data sources through and enables the user to move objects around the plant, generating immediate feedback of the consequences, allowing ‘what if’ scenarios and construction sequences to be examined.
With Review 6.2, Aveva says project teams based in multiple locations can be linked to improve their interaction using the 3D model. Reviewing users can share and review project data, both audio and video through the data browser to display either on desktops or in project team rooms.
“The product helps in carrying out regular project reviews, enabling early identification of issues that cause serious project delays and lead to large, unbudgeted costs. We anticipate the adoption of Review 6.2 would bring about significant improvements to project teams on engineering projects in the Middle East,” adds Dahmash.
Serving over 1100 providers primarily in the oil and gas, paper and pulp, power, chemical, pharmaceutical and shipbuilding industries the US$73 million company is headquartered in Cambridge, England.
