HUNTSVILLE, Ala., April 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Intergraph® announces its next technical event in Norway, "Delivering Construction and Completion Processes with SmartPlant® Enterprise," on May 9, 2012. This one-day seminar, sponsored by the Process, Power & Marine division, is a great opportunity for customers and prospects to gain an insight in the latest Intergraph technology, to network with peers, and to meet Intergraph experts.
The seminar will cover engineering design basis, construction with dynamic work package planning, fabrication, and system completion with a new template solution for all system completion activities. Attendees will learn how to leverage all functionalities available in SmartPlant Enterprise for construction and completion processes. With Intergraph's integrated suite of solutions, businesses can achieve substantial productivity gains and improve engineering efficiency by up to 30 percent.
"Construction projects today have become more complex. Information from multiple systems, departments or contractors need to be coordinated and managed to execute construction projects efficiently. Intergraph SmartPlant Construction uses live information from source systems like 3D models, 2D engineering tools, material management and warehouse systems. This provides quality information at all times, enabling users to make accurate and timely decisions to improve efficiency and substantially reduce construction schedules," said Chris Why, business development manager at Intergraph Process, Power & Marine, who will present at the seminar.
SmartPlant Construction is the integrated Intergraph solution that offers dynamic work package planning, construction sequencing and reporting to streamline and integrate engineering for improved CAPEX efficiency and maximum construction readiness. This is critical as construction readiness can make the difference between a 60 percent loss and a 10 percent profit, and SmartPlant Construction ensures that even the most complex construction projects stay on budget and schedule.
Jone H. Kristensen, Nordic Business Unit director at Intergraph said, "The process and offshore industries are seeing many new projects being planned and started in Scandinavia recently. It is important for owners and engineering contractors to execute these complex projects on schedule and on budget. Scandinavia was one of Intergraph's top growth areas globally in 2011. This trend is continuing in 2012 as Intergraph understands the market requirements and offers solutions helping customers to work to their full potential. I am therefore very pleased to host this event and show new and existing customers how they can benefit."
Construction companies, project management offices, fabricators and owners managing construction resources, materials and schedules are invited to join this event and discover how SmartPlant Enterprise meets individual business needs and enhances collaboration within construction and completion projects. Attendees will see the full spectrum off intelligent, integrated engineering knowledge in Intergraph's solutions giving them the competitive edge needed in today's and tomorrow's market.
