Gemeente Spijkenisse needed to implement a
managed environment to handle design work that
involved five departments, six professional
groups, and 35 workstations. The work consisted
of 60 projects, including urban planning designs,
civil construction and maintenance drawings,
ground exploitation, rural planning, and maintenance of the base map and other products based
on the designs. The implementation had to be
completed by a small team without interrupting
the standard workflow.
Project Wise was implemented so that the authorization and availability of drawings are coordinated with the tasks and responsibilities of the employees. The solution offers a simple, accessible workflow for production of designs with as few extra
operations as possible.
The project started with the implementation of a
dedicated application and data server. An inventory of all designs was made and descriptions
and a design phase-classification were added.
Next, the workflow for each design product was
determined. Now Gemeente Spijkenisse supports
and secures its standard workflow in all its projects, and can monitor the complete production
process, which enhances quality. ;
The firm in the Netherlands used ProjectWise to
solve several problems:
Archiving of designs was deficient,
especially with respect to unauthorized
changes and destruction.

KGHM Polska Miedz S.A. Zaklad
In 2004, KGHM Polska Miedê S.A. produced
3.61 percent of the world's copper production.
The company’s flotation tailings—the main waste
stream in copper mining—are stored in the Zelazny
Most Tailings Reservoir, managed by the Hydro-technical Division. The Polish facility is under the
constant attention of the technical and environmental services departments of the company.
Formerly, all the data were stored in different
databases. Graphical information was separated
from descriptive data. With the implementation of
a ProjectWise managed environment, access to
the information is now through one interface.
Groups of users such as survey companies, con-
sultants, and technical staff have authorized
access to data. The international panel of experts
can now directly monitor environmental parame-
ters of the Tailings Resevoir remotely. ;
The continuous monitoring of environmental
parameters has resulted in the accumulation of
vast amounts of data. These data are regularly
collated, processed, and analyzed against model
baseline information governing integrity of the
facility and determining management operations.
This had been an arduous and complex paper-based process. The profiles allow for creation of
geological and geotechnical cross sections to
