Case Study Chiyoda Corporation, Japan Chiyoda Establishes Industry-standard Materials Management System for Mega-projects Intergraph Smart ® Materials delivers an optimized, integrated materials management system for successful project completion Since its founding in 1948, Chiyoda Corporation (Chiyoda) has successfully built several plants and executed many projects in more than 40 countries around the world in very diverse fields, including energy, petroleum and natural gas, chemical and petrochemical, pharmaceuticals, environmental conservation and general industries. Chiyoda is a front-runner in energy-related technology, and its purpose is to contribute to the society through engineering for sustainable progress by promoting balance and harmony between industrial progress and the global environment. Identifying Goals Chiyoda Corporation, headquartered in Yokohama, Japan, is a world-leading engineering company with wide-ranging business interests in such fields as energy, chemicals and petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, environmental technology, social infrastructure and industrial facilities. Chiyoda had developed its own in-house materials management system but in 1998, it decided to replace the system. After an intensive evaluation of all the solution providers in the market, the company chose Hexagon and decided to replace its in-house materials management system with Intergraph Smart ® Materials as the global, enterprise-wide standard. In 2005, Chiyoda took on three large LNG projects in Qatar, with each project requiring the construction of two trains with a capacity of 7,800,000 t/year each, which is the world's largest capacity record to date. It was highly critical that the company could execute the challenging engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) work for these three mega-projects, using Hexagon technology.
