Integrated Construction Execution highlighted at HxGN LIVE


Yesterday was another great day for Intergraph PP&M at HxGN LIVE, beginning with an insightful keynote on Integrated Construction Execution - featuring EcoSys EPC and SmartPlant Construction - and ending with an evening at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure Park.

With an average of 30 percent idle time on project sites, it is vital for engineering, procurement and construction professionals to have access to integrated planning capabilities, such as are found in SmartPlant Construction and EcoSys EPC.

PP&M Senior Vice President Michael Buss explained how materials and time management are vastly improved with those tools, which break down discipline silos and painlessly track changes that need to be made.

“We are living in a mobile world,” he said, accentuating the mobile proficiencies of the software.

EcoSys Vice President Neely Hemassi said her company delivers real-time information on project performance and brings together vital data in one centralized system across a company’s portfolio. She said it allows the workforce to tend to higher-level analysis rather than the low-value manual tasks often associated with data collection.

“Reconciling all sources of information can take so much time,” she said, but EcoSys can serve as a single trusted data source.

Also speaking at the keynote was EcoSys client Aidhean Camson, global performance and controls director with CH2M. Acknowledging that while implementing project controls across all of a company’s ventures all at once could seem daunting, Camson told audience members to consider utilizing the software in one large project, and then scale up.

“It’s going to help you deliver your profit,” he said, because it allows managers to make smart decisions about how to deploy their resources.

The final PP&M keynote for HxGN LIVE 2016 – “Break Through the Barriers with New Cloud-Based Information Management Service” - will be delivered at 8 a.m. (California time) today by Intergraph executives Brad Broughton, Jay Schwartz, and Adrian Park. Come learn how your engineering information can be captured and organized so that everyone in your organization can easily find the data they need.
