WorleyParsons uses SmartPlant Electrical for better management

WorleyParsosn was featured in the 35th issue of Insight magazine. It's a leading provider of professional services to the resource and energy sectors, and to complex process industries. Its services cover the full asset spectrum in size and lifestyle, from small brownfield service contracts to mega greenfield projects. Its business units includes hydrocarbons, minerals, metals and chemicals, and infrastructure. 

WorleyParsons had its own in-house tools to manage cable projects, which were challenged by the numerous Microsoft Excel spreadsheets utilized in tracking the amount of cable needed for projects. These spreadsheets were managed manually by numerous users across multiple offices. The management of change, especially across the different locations, was relatively impossible with the spreadsheet-type solution.

As WorleyParsons’ projects grew larger and more complex, the in-house tools were challenged. It came time for WorleyParsons to move from AutoCAD and in-house tools to the adoption of commercially proven products with broad user bases to carry its company forward in capabilities, to be ready for the next challenge.
