The Future of Steel Fabrication AVEVA Bocad – Integration Update As the capital engineering industries begin to adopt Lean Construction methodologies, structural-steel detailing and fabrication technology has an opportunity to play a leading role in the future of construction. AVEVA is actively driving this exciting future, bringing new capabilities in design, fabrication and collaboration. First, by bringing steel fabrication software into the AVEVA solutions portfolio to create the AVEVA Bocad™ suite; second, by progressively integrating this class-leading range of dedicated applications onto the common AVEVA technology platform. The potential benefits to the industry are immense. AVEVA Bocad technology not only derisks steel fabrication, it also enables detailers and fabricators to confidently meet the most challenging design requirements, and to use Lean Fabrication processes to achieve right-first-time construction. In previous issues of AVEVA World Magazine we have described some of AVEVA Bocad's capabilities and shown how enterprising fabricators are using it to achieve outstanding business performance. Coming soon will be details of how AVEVA has been delivering on its promise of closer technology integration, putting AVEVA Bocad on a unified platform with a new Steel Fabrication Management solution and its other design solutions. Unlike competitive solutions which rely on interfaces or add- ons, this is true integration that will enable constant real-time data-flow between applications. Not only does this approach enable efficient multi-discipline collaboration, it also exposes steel detailing to AVEVA E3D Insight™, providing even more extensive project review and design approval capabilities using mobile devices. A key feature of any Lean methodology is feedback, to verify the quality of every step in the workflow. Because this integration also encompasses AVEVA's powerful laser data capture technologies, it creates exciting possibilities for closing the loop between construction, fabrication and design. It will also facilitate more efficient revamping of capital assets by making it easy to accurately capture existing 'as-is' structure. The next big opportunity is integrating steel detailing with construction planning. AVEVA's open approach to information exchange enables the integration of AVEVA Bocad, not only with 3D plant design, but also with project review, fabrication management and construction planning solutions. The future is a seamless environment that enables steel detailing and fabrication to play a full role in the Lean Construction of the most complex projects.
