An innovative AVEVA NET deployment In March 2009, Houston-based Mustang Engineering implemented AVEVA NET to streamline data management and end-of-project data handover. Using this powerful information management solution, Mustang can complete handover in a matter of minutes. Mustang has also begun to use AVEVA NET as a hub for all project information management, from project commencement to completion. Mustang has realized immediate benefits from its use of AVEVA NET. Deliverables can now be collected and automatically cross-referenced using a single database. Most importantly, clients can obtain data as a project progresses (a significant achievement), as well as upon engineering completion, as had been the case in the past. Mustang's innovative AVEVA NET deployment means it can make handover one of the smoothest parts of a project rather than one of the more challenging.Photos:Top: Mustang Engineering's Lorna Shipp addresses the AVEVA World Summit in Las Vegas.Bottom: AVEVA Americas William Muldoon presents Mustang Engineering's Lorna Shipp with the 2010 North America Engineering Excellence Award for her company's innovative use of AVEVA NET.'We have been able to provide our engineers and designers with direct access to many documents, databases, and datasets using AVEVA NET. The information contained in many of these documents and databases would have been directly available only to a limited number of people. We are also able to validate and cross-check the information in these databases faster and more efficiently using AVEVA NET,' said Ali Karamyar, Mustang project manager. Mustang had a dedicated team overseeing implementation of AVEVA NET, including:z VP - Information Management & IT: Gary Whatleyz Global Manager - Project Information Management: Kathryn Lustz Global Manager - Data Management: Lorna Shippz Corporate System Architect: Robert Plocek z Application Implementation Lead: Rodney Waltherz AVEVA Server Administrator: Lance Jeffersonz Application Implementation Team Member: Jeremy NeffLorna Shipp received the award for Mustang Engineering.On the Latin American side, Consórcio IPOJUCA Interligações successfully integrated AVEVA NET and AVEVA PDMS 12 to construct the first new Petrobras refinery built in the last 50 years. This 200,000 bp/d refinery (RNEST) project has a total investment value of $4 billion and involved the integration of six different engineering systems from six vendors, including bidirectional data transfer, to build and install 50 refining units.Photos:Top: Ipojuca's Pedro Eduardo Vervloet Feu Rosa (left), Paulo Cezar Moreira (center) and Helton Carlos Henke Passarelli (right) show off their Engineering Excellence Award at the Americas AVEVA World Summit in Las Vegas.Bottom: Ipojuca's Paulo Cezar Moreira (center) and Pedro Eduardo Vervloet Feu Rosa (right) celebrate after winning the 2010 Latin America Engineering Excellence Award for successfully integrating construction with engineering and procurement via AVEVA NET on a Brazilian refinery project.Consórcio IPOJUCA Interligações' RNEST refinery project marked the first time AVEVA NET has been used simultaneously in the project engineering and construction phases in Latin America. Paulo Cezar Moreira, Project Manager (Automation) and Pedro Eduardo Vervloet Feu Rosa, System Analyst, accepted the award, presented by Santiago Pena, Vice President - Latin America.'IPOJUCA's work on the RNEST refinery represents a major technological breakthrough in managing engineering and construction data integration for a greenfield refinery project,' Santiago Pena commented. 'They put AVEVA NET to the fullest test of its capabilities and made outstanding use of the solution in a very complex and challenging environment.' Paulo Cezar Moreira added, 'This award acknowledges the challenges we overcame and the successes we achieved, particularly in simultaneously integrating construction with engineering and procurement. This is the first time this has been successfully done in Brazil. Thank you, AVEVA, for the recognition.''Each company represented the best of AVEVA's philosophy of Continual Progression. Both made ground-breaking use of AVEVA's design and information management solutions, and each achieved significant and impressive results...'Successful integration of construction with engineering and procurementAVEVA World Magazine 2011|Issue 133

Compress schedules, deliver quality, win more business!Indian engineering design consultancy, Sidvin Core-Tech (I) Pvt. Ltd., certainly has high aspirations. In fact, its work has even reached the moon! In addition to clients in the oil & gas, offshore, chemical and LNG storage industries, this successful Bangalore-based business, founded in 2000, has also delivered engineering design services to the Indian Space Research Organisation, whose most recent rocket launch pad was designed using AVEVA solutions.But although Sidvin aims high, it has its feet firmly on the ground when it comes to understanding how to deliver value to its customers. It has recognised the reality of the market - namely, that projects must now be delivered in ever shorter timescales, across ever more complex international collaborations, without in any way compromising on quality. Only this approach will enable the customer, in turn, to operate effectively in the highly competitive global marketplace.Sidvin's relationship with AVEVA goes back to the purchase of their first PDMS licence in 2000. But clients' expectations have changed dramatically over that time. Praveen Pawadshettar, Manager - Operations at Sidvin, explains, 'Detail engineering projects used to be delivered in around 45 weeks. Now, customers are setting timelines of around 32 weeks. Our customers face severe penalties for missing milestones, and manpower costs are very high. Their schedules must compress.'The challenges are many - for example, the sheer internationality of large engineering projects. Contractors and subcontractors find themselves in complex relationships with partners which are often spread out all over the globe. The huge distances involved can make any kind of collaboration problematic, on both human and technical levels. One of the major issues is with project review cycles. These can be complicated and lengthy at the best of times, but add the geographical factors into the process and the challenge is multiplied.Yash Vardhan Trehan Senior Account Executive, AVEVA Asia PacificJanardhan Shenoy Technical Sales Support Manager, AVEVA Asia PacificAVEVA PDMS model of an FPSO for a field offshore Brazil .
