(continued) As a result, Atkins had no hesitation in migrating to AVEVA E3D and updating its PDMS-based procedures to take advantage of the new capabilities. 'AVEVA E3D also reduces the extent of site survey,' Jim went on. 'We only have to survey the tie-in points and any identifiable pinch points. Some pinch points you can't identify until later, but even if we do miss one, AVEVA E3D enables us to take quick and effective corrective action after the fact. We not only gain speed and reduce risk, we also increase design quality, which leads to further cost- and time-savings on site.' The future Atkins is in the process of launching its new global design strategy, in which AVEVA technology will play a prominent role. With AVEVA E3D and laser scan data, engineers anywhere in Atkins can undertake extensive and accurate brownfield projects without ever having to set foot in the actual facility. 'But all of the checking and verification will still be handled through the local Atkins team,' Jim emphasised, 'This approach is what Atkins sees as its future; increased efficiency, delivering quality and enabling clients to tackle difficult projects with ease.' Atkins is currently the only company in Western Australia to use AVEVA E3D; Jim makes no secret of how glad he is of the competitive advantage. 'AVEVA E3D has enabled Atkins to increase design flexibility and increase accuracy,' he concluded. 'I'm honestly really impressed by it.' About Atkins Atkins is one of the world's leading design, engineering and project management consultancies, employing some 18,000 people across the UK, North America, Middle East, Asia Pacific and Europe. Its breadth and depth of expertise, and its drive to continually ask 'why', has enabled the company to plan, design and deliver some of the world's most complex and time-critical projects.
