AceCad defines business value for the Structural Supply Chain at Fiatech Technology conference 2010

AceCad Software demonstrated its StruPLANT solution for Industrial Plant and StruAEC, a BIM compliant solution for the structural Supply chain at FIATECH’s Technology Conference & Showcase 2010. The 10th annual conference took place March 29 - 31 at the University of Texas at Austin’s AT&T Executive Education & Conference Center in Austin.

The conference brought together more than 250 technology decision-makers in the capital projects industry, which celebrated the consortium’s 10th anniversary with other industry leaders whose desire is to identify and accelerate the development of integrated and automated technologies.

At the conference, Paul Daynes, Head of AceCad’s EPC division presented to delegates how the Structural Supply Chain is being transformed by technological innovation through capture and utilization of knowledge-based fabrication and integrated work processes, enabling value engineering throughout the contracting chain.

StruPLANT and StruAEC solutions uniquely support the entire structural supply chain through from architect and engineering design, through procurement, fabrication and into construction. Built on the industry leading Fabrication Information Modeling (FIM) methodology for structural engineering, StruPLANT and StruAEC solutions provide an open, yet fully integrated steelwork design and management environment, on a fully internationalized .NET platform.

"FIATECH represents all that is innovation and practical for achieving true interoperability in executing capital projects. At AceCad we have expressed value engineering through sharing and managing fabrication knowledge, models, deliverables and data to enable full collaboration and standards based interoperability between contracting companies." said Paul Daynes, AceCad’s Head of EPC division. "Our solution approach is unique to the structural supply chain. We compliment multi-disciplined BIM and Plant modeling systems, by delivering optimized detail design to engineering and construction teams through real-time fabrication contract management, status, traceability and tracking, estimates, erection assessment, construction planning and more. Technology is no longer a barrier to change and business value in the Structural Supply Chain."
