cnpcceI collaborative Management
china petroleum engineering & construction corp. east-china Design Institute
(cnpcceI) manages engineering, procurement, and construction projects
such as large-scale oil refineries. In the past, project files were dispersed
among designers, making it hard to obtain accurate information in a timely and
effective way. manual document control procedures were time consuming, with
no centralized access and ineffective version control.
cnpcceI implemented project Wise in 2009 and has since managed 67
engineering, procurement, and construction projects with more than 230,000
files. File management, version control, and usage problems were resolved.
Document control was simplified and collaboration among branch offices
flourished. project Wise resulted in time savings of at least 20 percent. The
reduced man-hours lowered project costs by about 5 percent.
engineering collaboration with projectwise
continuus-properzi produces non-ferrous rods for worldwide distribution. each
year, the technical department manager coordinates production and revision
of more than 50,000 mechanical and electrical cAD design files, technical
reports, specifications, and manuals for design and delivery of new machinery.
This documentation was being distributed to multiple departments, making it
impossible to correlate data and find project information.
project Wise was introduced to give the departments secure and controlled
access to documents. metadata with appropriate coding, categorization, and
descriptions eliminated problems with finding, correlating, and sharing data. In
addition, field engineers working on properzi lines all over the world also access
data on the milan, Italy, server as if they were at company headquarters.
