1st Place CADWorx® FLSmidth
The submission from FLSmidth, with headquarters in Copenhagen, Denmark, describes how the supplier of equipment, services and expertise for the cement and minerals industries deployed CADWorx on a US$63 million copper concentrator design project for Kazakhmys PLC in Kazakhstan. A major project challenge for FLSmidth’s Salt Lake City, Utah, office was its aggressive schedule. Relying on CADWorx’s ease of use, design performance, accuracy and increased output helped FLSmidth reduce training time to three man-days compared to 15 man-days with its previous platform. Examples of man-hour savings were 50 percent on the piping specifications and 75 percent for the isometric configuration, allowing FLSmidth to complete the project well within schedule.
