CONNECTING PROJECT TEAMS
Camargo Correa S.A.
Comperj Petrochemical Plant
Rio de Janeiro’s Petrochemical Complex (Comperj) will be constructed on a
45-million-square-meter area located in Itaborai, Brazil, with investments
of $8.38 billion. When operations begin in 2012, Comperj will process about
150,000 barrels per day of heavy oil. The project partners implemented
Project Wise to connect team members in distant locations.
Project Wise was integrated with Microsoft SharePoint and used in conjunction
with Aveva’s plant design management system (PDMS) to improve team
performance, facilitate collaboration by enabling efficient file exchange,
and expedite the design approval process. The total time on the project was
reduced by 15 percent as a result of deploying the technology.
China Huanqiu Contracting & Engineering Corp.
Establishing a Collaborative Content Management Platform
China Huanqiu Contracting & Engineering has five subsidiaries throughout China
with more than 1,000 employees. The company had multiple systems for project
management in 2D and 3D design, which made it difficult to share and exchange
engineering information among systems. To more accurately and efficiently
manage engineering content during the entire lifecycle of projects, the company
deployed Project Wise.
Design teams from different locations were connected using Project Wise’s
distributed functions, enabling team members to access the latest versions of
project files. The Project Wise collaboration system allows teams to customize
sets of attributes suitable for different projects and to expand functionality to
meet specific needs. With Project Wise, engineers save 30 percent in man-hours
due to efficient information sharing and searching.
