The networking sessions also reflected this focus on delivery, with conversations on the impact of technology on management processes and the overall business. The range of presentations was impressive in the joint session, as well as the plant and marine industry tracks. While the specific industries and the application of technology varied greatly, I was surprised by the number of common business themes that continued to appear throughout the event. In Beijing, we had an excellent AVEVA NET presentation from Aker Solutions (see page 8), and Worley Parsons explained the details of a PDMS and P&ID integration project (both companies are from Australia). We also had Marine presentations from Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding (Japan) and STX ForceTec (Korea), as well as plant case studies from Sidvin Core-Tech (India) and China Nuclear Power Design Company (ShenZhen).SummaryThe Summits represent the first phase in the creation of a larger AVEVA World Community which is designed specifically to meet the networking, educational and information needs of our customers. We learned a great deal from the Summit events in 2010 and we will be incorporating many of the suggestions from our delegates to improve the Summit experience in the future. Dates and venues for this year's AVEVA World Summits will be announced in early 2011. We invite all AVEVA customers to visit our website and join their industry colleagues in the AVEVA World Community. It provides a great opportunity to stay in touch with developments at AVEVA and take advantage of a growing set of community resources. See you at the 2011 Summits!For more information, please visit the AVEVA World website at'The Summits represent the first phase in the creation of a larger AVEVA World Community which is designed specifically to meet the networking, educational and information needs of our customers...'AVEVA World Summit Delegate Survey Results Delegates to all Summit events were invited to complete a survey asking 20 questions about the quality of the event. The results of this survey have been reviewed by AVEVA's executive management team and will be used to shape the format and content of future Summits. Below is a sample of the survey results from a few of the key questions.StronglydisagreeSlightlydisagreeNoopinionSlightlyagreeStronglyagreeI was very satisfied with the overall quality and content of the Summit presentations.This year, the Summit included both Marine and Plant tracks. Combining these two tracks in one event worked well and I would recommend that it be repeated in the future.I would recommend attending the Summit to colleagues inside and outside my company.AVEVA World Magazine 2011|Issue 115

A more sophisticated engineering systemYury Bukhanov, General Director of UralTEP explains, 'We needed to work with 3D technology. Earlier, when using 2D technology, we often found that vital production information was missing. This often led to costly rework due to late design modifications. We needed a more sophisticated engineering system. After thoroughly evaluating several systems, we selected the AVEVA Plant solution and, in 2005, AVEVA PDMS was implemented. The installation, training and deployment of the software all went very smoothly.'Easy to import design information into AVEVA PDMSThe reconstruction in 2006 of the Strogino district heating power station outside Moscow was UralTEP's first project with PDMS. Installers, builders, technologists and electricians all worked with the system.'One of the main reasons for selecting PDMS,' continues Yury Bukhanov, 'was that we found it very easy to import design information into PDMS from other systems. Siemens provided 3D models of turbines for the Strogino project and we easily imported these models into the PDMS model of the plant.'Today, we use PDMS right from the start of a project, when the first layout of the plant is created, then for all aspects of layout and detailed design, including piping, ducting, equipment, electrical, instrumentation and structural disciplines.'All kinds of fabrication and construction drawings, such as piping isometrics and arrangement drawings, together with Material Take Offs for all disciplines, are generated directly from the PDMS model.'Other notable PDMS projects performed by UralTEP included the reconstruction of the Ufimskaya thermoelectric power plant, Novgorodskaya fossil power station and Pervomayskaya combined heat and power plant, and the construction of the Noyabrskaya combined cycle power plant.The Noyabrskaya plant was the first major project executed by UralTEP using PDMS. Work was carried out on both the integrated design of the main building and the water treatment facilities. This project also gave UralTEP the opportunity to test their communications with third-party organisations, in this case GE, who provided detailed 3D models of the turbines. These models were then used to assist in the design of the pipelines.Building on a solid foundation for Russian power projectsBy the early 2000s, the economy in Russia had started to grow rapidly, resulting in a huge demand for electrical power. To meet this, the power industry had to dramatically increase production. UralTEP, a company which provides design, project management and engineering services to the Russian power industry, realised that, in order to achieve a considerable increase in production, they needed to move from their existing 2D design system to a 3D solution for planning, design and construction.Magnus Feldt Industry Marketing Manager, AVEVAImage courtesy of UralTEP.
