06AVEVA World Magazine 2011|Issue 2First project with AVEVA NETThe new COMPERJ refinery project for Petrobras is the first project in which Promon has employed AVEVA NET, and the company quickly realised further benefits from the use of the application. These included the ease with which they could now share engineering information with the procurement, construction, enterprise data and document systems, the ability to allocate materials to projects, and the integration of AVEVA NET with Promon's planning tools, Enterprise Data Management (EDM) and ERP systems.Several daily reports were developed and used by a number of professionals to consolidate information from all disciplines and integrated systems. This approach ensures a high level of information quality and reduces rework on site.Many control reports which were distributed weekly to the project team are now published on AVEVA NET as a unique information source.The COMPERJ project is using AVEVA NET in three different offices, with the scope shared between Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo and Buenos Aires (Argentina).Since the beginning of this year, Promon Engenharia has been using AVEVA NET on a new offshore project for Petrobras. Using a totally different system environment from that in previous projects, this also includes integration with PDS from Intergraph.Rogerio Pinto concludes, 'Promon has a complex scenario in which we use software from different vendors; with AVEVA NET, we are now more quickly able to integrate all of these applications. Having accurate and rapid access to information, we are reducing our overall engineering man-hours. AVEVA NET offers business benefits through the ability to define and maintain information integrity in an EPC environment.'About PromonThe Brazilian company Promon Engenharia, established in 1960, is part of the Promon Group.
