Fast start for new projects 'We can be in production on a new project in a matter of days,' said Alfonso Plaza. 'On our most recent project, PDMS, Diagrams and MDS were all fully set up within four to five days. That included the set-ups for all the individual users and all the integration software we use. This was achieved with our existing two system administrators, who also had to manage their regular day jobs at the same time! 'Our business is power, and that means that many of our new projects can get a fast start by reusing data from previous designs, for example, from one combined cycle project to another. We can copy intelligent data into the new project using standard product functionality. We share catalogue and piping classes as much as we can, but these often differ between projects. That's not such a problem however. Although in the past it might take three weeks to implement a new piping class, it now takes two to three hours. 'We will also take the same approach in future, in copying and reusing Diagrams data between projects. That will undoubtedly give us another significant cost and schedule saving.' Continual progression for project efficiency 'Continual progression is as applicable to INITEC Energía as it is to AVEVA,' explained Alfonso Plaza. 'Our business becomes more and more efficient as time goes on.' 'For example, a project that in the past might have taken 45,000 hours, we would now probably execute in as little as 25,000 hours. The AVEVA technology has been a significant factor in achieving that.'
