It is easy to demonstrate tangible productivity savings during the engineering phase of a fabrication project –
the preparation, checking, and issuing of fabrication drawings and material take off (MTO) reports. While a typical spool sheet might take between one to four hours using manual methods or 2D CAD, SmartPlant Spoolgen will produce a set of accurate, consistent drawings and MTO reports in just a few minutes. Normally, the purchase of SmartPlant Spoolgen can be justified on engineering savings alone on any project with a few thousand spools. Your local Intergraph sales office can provide a customized ROI calculation for your company.
SmartPlant Spoolgen can enable additional efficiency savings downstream – in the fabrication workshop and erection and assembly site. The automated and accurate drawings and reports available from SmartPlant Spoolgen enable you to implement improvements to your management of materials and to reduce waste and operator wait times by ensuring that the right materials are available at the right time. Companies have realized time savings of more than 30 percent by implementing improved workflows including SmartPlant Spoolgen. At the erection site or module assembly yard, you can achieve further savings through efficient management of spools and erection materials.
