The primary goal of the implementation was
to improve CAD management and workflow.
Before Project Wise, CAD management varied
from office to office. CAD files were stored
on network drives or local hard drives and
shared through peer-to-peer connections or
via e-mail. As a result, multiple versions of
files used large quantities of storage capacity.
Before Project Wise, all milestone reviews and
deliverables were performed using a paper-based workflow. For each review, multiple
sets were printed and mailed throughout the
department. Comments were made by hand
and then mailed or delivered back to the
being incorporated to perform electronic
reviews. Those who prefer to review using
paper can plot the necessary pages directly
from Project Wise.
Project Wise changed this by storing files in
one location for access by everyone involved.
This has reduced storage space requirements
and network bandwidth consumption.
With ProjectWise, MDOT is evolving to an
electronic workflow for reviews and deliver-
ables. Adobe PDF and Bentley Redline are
ProjectWise is also being used for MDOT’s
eProposal project, which will publish plans
and proposals on the Web for contractors to
view, download, and print at no charge. ;
Project Wise for
Scetauroute, a world leader in toll
motorway engineering, implemented
Project Wise to enable design and project standardization and to support collaboration across multiple sites and disciplines.
A year after launching the first phase of
ProjectWise implementation, several
goals have already been reached:
ProjectWise has enabled Scetauroute
to update its engineering and design
methods, file structures, and workflow.
Design offices in Lille and Lyon collaborated on the Rhin-Rhône High Speed
With 850 people in 41 countries,
Scetauroute expects that a managed
environment built on Project Wise will help
improve collaboration and productivity,
reduce costs, make best use of resources, and
improve design archives. ;
