AVEVA Engineering™ enables multi-disciplinary teams of engineers to work effectively together to develop and maintain the detailed definition of all the key engineering items involved in plant or marine projects.
As a project progresses, engineers build a database of its engineering objects, such as lines, equipment and valves, and all their key attributes. This object data is stored and managed in the project information model, enabling its integration with schematic and 3D design data and supporting global project collaboration where required.
AVEVA Engineering is highly versatile and configurable. It is typically used as an authoring tool for the process and mechanical disciplines, but is equally well suited for pipe stress, safety or other specialist disciplines. It enables each discipline to retain full control of their own data while being able to access and reference data from other disciplines. When used as part of an integrated AVEVA software deployment the complete project information model is exposed to the full range of AVEVA’s design, engineering, collaboration and lifecycle management technologies.
Built-in tools enable project or engineering managers to monitor design progress and the completeness and consistency of data. This monitoring covers a wide range of disciplines and their engineering, schematic and 3D data, thereby providing a coherent and comprehensive view of project status.
The application can generate not only key project documents (such as process and mechanical datasheets, tag registers, line lists, equipment lists or valve lists), but also any kind of ad hoc or departmental report.
Engineering data can be created, viewed or modified using both spreadsheet list-style and datasheet-style user interfaces, according to need or preference.
Users can also browse and navigate the complete project data including engineering, 3D, schematics and catalogue data using a configurable Project Explorer.
The database is under continuous access control, defining what information a user may create, view or change.
All changes to the data are automatically stored in the database, creating a permanent audit trail. Users can follow up on changes using change highlighting and history functions.
Built-in status control tools enable the status of every individual object to be fully controlled, and enable users to view change information on demand as they work.
Configurable consistency checks can be applied across the database at any time to verify the quality of the data.
Project wide, formatted reports including charts and graphics can easily be created directly from the database.
Compare & Update allows synchronisation of data between all AVEVA products, as well as external systems and data sources.
The product is built on the proven AVEVA PDMS™ and AVEVA Outfitting™ technology, which enables distributed, multilocation working using AVEVA Global™.
AVEVA Engineering can be readily configured to suit a wide range of project, customer or industry requirements. It includes a powerful programming language (PML) and .NET APIs, enabling the application of all kinds of customer or industry specific customisation and automations.
Increased project control :-
Puts engineering data into a common project database where it can be more effectively managed, controlled and used.
Enables changes to be implemented quickly and efficiently, reducing their impact on cost, schedule, quality and risk.
Enables effective multidiscipline collaboration:-
Creates high-quality datasheets, lists, schedules and other deliverables on demand.
Increased project quality :-
Fewer errors from uncontrolled handover of data between disciplinesl
Enables the detection and elimination of a wider range of data inconsistencies, reducing the risk of costly, late design changes and associated rework.
Generates deliverables direct from the project database, eliminating sources of error.
Enables efficient multi-site collaboration on a wider range of engineering data.
Removes boundaries between data sources, enabling better integrated, more effective working methods.
