HUNTSVILLE, Ala., December 1, 2014 – Leading Korean engineering company Hyundai Engineering (HEC) has reported significant time and cost savings as a result of using Intergraph Smart™ 3D in the delivery of a US$300 million South American oil refinery project.
Smart 3D reduced the cost and work hours involved in the production of the project’s engineering drawings by 51 percent, as compared to 2D manual methodology, delivering a multimillion U.S. dollar saving for the company.
HEC adopted Smart 3D several years ago and has noted a significant improvement in the quality of engineering outputs. The solution enables drawings to be produced automatically, with no manual production required – therefore reducing the technical errors commonly seen with 2D solutions.
“Smart 3D has been instrumental in reducing project risk and delivering significant time and cost savings,” said Myung-su Han, HEC engineering IT team leader. “Furthermore, the high quality of engineering deliverables helped us to avoid reworks and other delays, in turn reducing the overall project schedule.”
Gerhard Sallinger, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine president, said, “The South American oil refinery project is further proof that Intergraph’s 3D design solutions offer a clear and quantifiable benefit over 2D solutions.
“Smart 3D is a logical step forward for Intergraph customers who are currently enjoying the benefits of our earlier 3D design package PDS®, and would like to drive productivity even further.”
Smart 3D is the world’s first and only next-generation 3D design solution specifically tailored for plant, offshore, shipbuilding, and the metals and mining industries, employing a breakthrough engineering approach that leverages real-time concurrent design, rules, relationships and automation. It is the most advanced and productive 3D design solution that effectively enables optimized design, increasing safety, quality and productivity, while shortening project schedules.
