Case Study Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction, Korea Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction optimizes with Intergraph Smart ® Construction Korean EPC reports significant gains in project visibility, materials management and decision-making capabilities Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction (DHIC) is a leading Korean engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor offering services ranging from the manufacture of castings and forgings to power generation systems and desalination facilities for power plants. Founded in 1962, DHIC is now one of the fastest-growing infrastructure support businesses in the world. It provides communities across five continents with the fundamental solutions, tools and structures they need to prosper. The Challenge At the core of DHIC's long-term business strategy is the ongoing investment in information technology to optimize the delivery of its EPC projects. In managing a recent construction project, DHIC saw the need to improve information management, in particular, the millions of details and numerous complex variables it handles, including construction materials. According to DHIC's Lee Young Geun, "We wanted a more efficient way to plan and manage work packages. That meant we needed access to the most accurate information, such as construction quantities, to make more informed decisions." In short, a work package planning solution was required that would allow DHIC to check the construction status of projects using current information from various sources including 3D models, and animate the works with detailed schedules. The Solution A long-term customer of Hexagon's Asset Lifecycle Intelligence division, DHIC selected Intergraph Smart ® Construction, a dynamic work package planning solution, to enhance productivity during construction.
