AVEVA publishes new business paper - Plant Design for Lean Construction

The next generation of plant design reduces rework and accelerates project schedules


Cambridge , UK – 20 November 2012: AVEVA today announced its release of a new business paper focused on the adoption of a Lean Construction philosophy by Engineering Procurement and Construction (EPC) companies. The paper looks at what is required from the next generation of plant design products to make a step change in project execution efficiency and presents AVEVA’s insight on how to apply Lean principles in the plant industries.

“When we first devised the concept for the Future of Plant Design, Lean Construction was the key driver”, said Dave Wheeldon, CTO & Head of Engineering Design Systems, AVEVA.  “Lean Construction is founded on three key principles: respect for people by empowering all levels of an organisation, eliminating non-value adding activity by adopting a zero tolerance of wastage, and maximising the efficiency of activities that add value.

“It has always been a challenge to adopt the Lean philosophy to major capital projects due to the fragmented nature of the supply chain and the one-off nature of the project itself. There is now evidence that companies are open to change and thinking about new contracting styles to improve efficiency. New technologies such as affordable laser scanning and mobile computing have already allowed AVEVA to create an innovation which can enable EPCs to adopt a version of Lean Construction for EPC projects.”

AVEVA’s new product, AVEVA Everything3D (E3D), enables the realisation of Plant Design for Lean Construction. It reduces project execution duration and allows increased productivity for quicker ROI. Enhanced feedback from fabrication and construction to design will enable EPCs to benefit by eliminating or managing rework early in the design processes rather than by crisis management on the construction site.

Wheeldon added “The move to Lean is a significant challenge, but the benefits are plain to see. As this paper demonstrates, the approach will add competitiveness, increased profitability, improved delivery success and an enhanced brand image for the EPC.  Operators will enjoy faster time to first production or first oil and receive a 3D model which is a true reflection of their constructed asset.”
