Eastman Chemical Company is a Fortune 300 company with more than USD 9 billion in annual revenues, 14,000 employees, and more than 40
manufacturing sites. A growing need for better information security, improved reliability, and reduced maintenance costs mandated a new
information management solution that could replace a legacy in-house system but retain Eastman’s proven records management process,
integrate SharePoint environments, and utilize internal security policies.
Project Wise met these functional requirements, while introducing significant productivity improvements. The lifecycle cost of the software
and reduced demand on IT infrastructure and support will return nearly USD 100,000 annually. The daily use of the system will return over
USD 4 million due to efficiency improvements. This project also included rigorous testing, user training, system migration, and

Journey to a New Global Information-sharing Platform FINALIST
This ferrous metallurgy project for Rizhao Steel Holding Group encompassed the construction of a large sintering plant to sinter and process
iron ore. Since multiple engineering disciplines were involved in the construction and installation work for this short cycle project that will
result in the largest single sintering machine in China, 3D BIM technology was used to meet the project contract in terms of schedule,
quality, safety, and cost.
Using AECOsim Building Designer, GEOPAK, MicroStation, Bentley Navigator, Bentley OpenPlant, Project Wise, and Bentley Raceway
and Cable Management, Tianjin MCC20 Construction shortened construction by 35 days, reduced project costs by CNY 4. 5 million, and
decreased the number of changes by 95 percent through clash detection and resolution. With a return on investment of 1, 100 percent, this
project exceeded projected social and economic milestones.
