Brescia to Milan, Italy
The Brescia-Bergamo-Milan Motorway Connection is the new toll highway
linking the city of Brescia with Milan. Its purpose is to ease congestion on the
current road and motorway network along the corridor. The $2 billion project
provides for the completion of the new motorway with three lanes in each
direction, new local roads, and the renovation of existing roads.
The company selected Project Wise to manage all project documentation.
The benefits include time savings in communication, controlled access to
design and procedure documents, and standardization of drawings and texts.
The centralized server in Brescia houses all documentation for the final and
executive plans— 60,000 technical drawings in editable and PDF format—
which has been drawn up by external design units located all over Italy.
Atlanta, Ga.-based Southern Company developed a data-centric design strategy
to ensure consistency and accuracy of information transmitted during and
beyond the design phase of a project. Implemented at a cost of $1.25 million,
the strategy specifies the information requirements for internal engineering,
external engineering contractors and designers, equipment vendors, and
materials suppliers that support the delivery of capital assets.
Project Wise Lifecycle Server Implementation
Atlanta, Georgia, United States
Project Wise Lifecycle Server provides an enterprise solution that consolidated
the correlated but disparate design data into a single repository. It ensures
that data is consistent with design procedures, standards, and guidelines
across engineering disciplines, outsourcing partners, and departments such as
construction, startup and commissioning, and operations and maintenance to
produce an estimated savings of 4+ million per 200 employees.
