Two Years On An overview of AVEVA Engineering in practice AVEVA Engineering™ was released in October 2011, so two years on seems like a good opportunity to take stock of its development since then and of its impact on the engineering industries. Background AVEVA Engineering's importance can be summed up in one word: control. Engineering projects create and manipulate huge amounts of disparate types of information, through a process of continual change. Historically, this required the different disciplines to work with many mutually incompatible applications and any number of home-grown spreadsheet documents. Chemical Engineering Magazine once observed that '...engineers working with stand-alone computer programs spend 50–80% of their time moving and organizing data between programs.' That was quite a startling statistic. It implied that many engineers were only fully productive for one or two days a week; for the rest of the time they were creating opportunities for errors to creep in, which is frustrating for the engineers and bad for business.
