Every design or engineering effort must start with the end in mind. By identifying, documenting, discussing, and agreeing upon nearly every expectation of the project, before design starts, the chance of a successful project outcome nears 100%.
Identify the show stoppers before the design is even approved! When you are working in virtual 3D representation, not only are you able to figure out dimensional clash, but now you can collaborate on operation, maintenance and safety clash. Virtual 3D design places you in the scene, allowing you and your team to fully understand the design’s impact while it is still inexpensive to modify.
Make sure your critical fabrication and purchased equipment will fit before it ships. Reworking fabrication in the field is expensive and may lead to a lower quality install. Finding out the mounting feet for large equipment are slightly off in the field can add days to an install. Inspect your design work with laser accuracy. See you new fabrication or equipment placed in the model before you approve it for shipment.
An accurate as-built is the foundation upon which a successful project is built. All too often, projects start with limited or incorrect dimensional data. Capturing reality and presenting it in 3D ensures a successful project outcome.
Good enough, is neither good, nor enough. There is no such thing as commodity engineering in heavy industry. Acensium’s workflows keep plant, corporate, and 3rd party engineers focused on superior package delivery. Stop settling for “good enough”.
Complete your bid packages and leave your bidders speachless – literally. A complete bid package leave little to no room for questions from bidders. You receive better bids. Still can’t host bidder groups on site for bid walkdowns? Bring the plant to them with a virtual bid meeting conducted on your virtual 3D plant site.
Not everyone can read 2D drawings. Bring your 3D design and as-built to the field with you during install. Get greater buy-in and understanding from everyone involved in the project. When all team members can envision the final outcome, project success rates increase dramatically.
