AVEVA World Magazine 2012|Issue 209most accurate data. In addition, the management team has access to this information at all times, which is very helpful in making informed decisions. On our most recent projects, we have also deployed AVEVA Diagrams. This works seamlessly with AVEVA Global and will give us the same efficiency benefits we enjoy with the other AVEVA applications.'Construction controlSite supervisors provide overall coordination and control of separate work stages, as well as managing the entire construction process. The progress of work is continuously monitored and compared with the schedule. Within the framework of technical supervision, the engineers control the quality of construction and installation jobs, and check that the parameters of building structures and utilities comply with design data. Continuous information exchange between the site staff and designers ensures that potential construction problems can be identified very effectively and any required changes to the design documentation can be quickly implemented. AVEVA NET further increases productivity and efficiencyIlshat Valiullin told us that, over time, the scope and volume of the company's work had increased significantly. At the same time, the information was becoming more and more difficult to control. To address this, they decided to launch a programme to improve the quality of their engineering information management. About two years ago, RGE deployed AVEVA NET Portal, a web-based solution for system consolidation and the management of engineering data. This project has already borne fruit. The principle advantage for project leaders and members is the ability to quickly locate critical information, and they now have a consistent, full picture of all their projects. This is essential for ongoing project checks and analysing existing situations, providing a firm basis for timely decision making. In addition, AVEVA NET Portal has made it possible to automate the process of collecting design data and documentation from remote offices.Most designers are now working on a single digital model of the project. All project participants have controlled access rights, based on their roles and, where necessary, they can edit and modify existing data. All changes are made available and comprehensible to other participants in the project. The digital model is a priceless repository of project information which is key to optimising the design and controlling supply and construction, while it also forms a valuable prototype for future projects.About GC RusGazEngineeringIn addition to their head office in Podolsk, RGE's other Russian offices are in Gubkinskiy, Krasnoyarsk, Kirovo-Chepetsk, Moscow, Penza, Ufa, Kazan, Tumen and Stavropol.

AVEVA Unveils New Vision to Define the Future of Plant Design Software10AVEVA World Magazine 2012|Issue 2Our customers are facing different challenges to those they faced just five years ago. Power and process industries around the world are undergoing a period of intense evolution. The scale of the challenge is evident, particularly in the energy sector. The International Energy Agency (IEA) has estimated that a $38 trillion investment will be required to create and modernise the world's energy system infrastructure, in order to meet projected energy demand through to 2035. Chemical, pharmaceutical and mining industries also face new infrastructure investment demands.To meet these demands, Owner Operators are moving into new geographies in more remote, more hostile and higher-risk locations such as the Arctic or deep-water environments. Plant lifetime extension projects are also increasing as operators see opportunities to maximise the output from existing assets.For the Engineering Procurement & Construction (EPC) company this means the creation and management of more complex process and power assets which, in turn, places more pressure on the speed and quality of project execution in order to maintain competitiveness. The ability to orchestrate engineering skills, minimise costs and streamline management decisions to respond faster to evolving market conditions has never been greater. This changing environment places new demands on the processes involved in capital projects and the supporting technologies that contribute to their success, such as plant design software.'...a new product for plant design that will support new and improved ways of working, and facilitate faster project deployment, as well as embracing mobile computing to provide even greater control and visibility to stakeholders across the design chain...'Dave Wheeldon, CTO, AVEVA introduces AVEVA's 'The Future of Plant Design' project at ACHEMA 2012 in Frankfurt.
