Intergraph CADWorx & Analysis Solutions President Rick Allen said, "The power of CADWorx to automate the design process helps lower companies' ongoing administrative and operational investments. CADWorx has helped many engineering firms succeed, especially on fast-track projects, such as brownfield, revamp and maintenance projects.
"We are finding that even small fast-turnaround projects still require quality clash-free models from which automatic deliverables can be generated. For clients, limited scope is no excuse for poor deliverables, and with oil prices at all-time lows we are seeing a keener focus on making sure that what is already working is doing so as efficiently and effectively as possible."
Patrick Holcomb, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine executive vice president of global business development and marketing, said, "CADWorx 2016 provides the most complete range of tools for efficient plant design in the market today and incorporates a number of significant enhancements to help streamline work processes. These enhancements will provide plant designers and engineers more flexibility in using the software."
