Fundamental for efficient execution of brownfield projects is the availability of accurate as-built information.  Unfortunately, many plants suffer from a lack of accurate, up to date records.  To provide an accurate project design basis, walk-downs and manual surveys usually have to be performed to verify and document what exists. Unfortunately, capturing the as-built situation via traditional methods is usually a time consuming, hazardous, error prone, and costly process.

Increasingly, engineering companies and plant owner operators are recognising the value that high definition laser scanning technology - used to capture the existing as-built plant configuration in the form of a high-accuracy point cloud - offers in support of brownfield projects. Combined with camera imaging, the point cloud can be rendered to provide a photo-realistic virtual view of the facility, effectively bringing the plant to the project engineer’s desktop.

Laser scanning is only one facet of an effective brownfield project solution though: today, engineering companies and owner operators also want integrated engineering tools that enable their personnel to efficiently utilise the accuracy of the point cloud in support of their entire project execution work process, which typically involves process engineering, design, clash detection checks, design code compliance checks via stress analysis, and creation of deliverables needed for fabrication and construction activities.

This webinar will help you identify:

  • The 5 common challenges that companies face when executing brownfield projects
  • The costs and risks associated with traditional working vs. the benefit of using an integrated CAD/CAE approach
  • How Intergraph’s CADWorx and Analysis Solutions differ from other offerings
  • How engineering companies ensure data consistency during project execution
  • How CADWorx and Analysis Solutions provide true business benefits
