A Houston-based premier engineering and construction solutions provider to the energy industry, operating in more than 50 countries with tens of thousands of employees and covering the entire construction lifecycle to transport and transform oil and gas into the products the world needs today, sought new ways to enhance project execution and cultivate higher confidence and trust in its construction projects. Project Summary As part of the EPC's digitalization transformation (DX) journey to operational excellence (OpEx) through continuous improvement (CI), it strategically pursues innovative ways to enrich project execution delivery. Through post-project reviews and evaluations, the firm assessed several key improvement areas to optimize their valuable resources of people, time, information and capital. Like many multinational EPC companies with offices, teams and projects around the world, the EPC project challenges that surfaced during post-project reviews are commonly known improvement areas. For example, project issues such as inconsistent work processes that hinder team collaboration and productivity. Or siloed information entered on a disconnected application that misses being uploaded for use, such as electrical materials for procurement sitting in an excel file on a desktop. Other instances include multiple entry points causing duplicated data to be recorded, inadequate stakeholder project visibility, poor reporting methods, and more. Altogether, these types of typical project difficulties can lead to millions of dollars in material waste, additional hours of rework and a negative impact on project team confidence and trust. Since we adopted Smart Electrical, our trust and confidence has grown significantly due to the accuracy and visibility of project data that Hexagon's solutions have delivered for our engineers." - Senior Manager Technology IT at Houston-based EPC Key Facts Industry: Energy Headquartered: Houston, TX, USA Products Used: • Intergraph Smart ® Electrical • Intergraph Smart 3D Key Benefits: • Quick and accurate identification of required procurement materials for better decision-making, eliminating confusion and waste • Clear visibility of project details for employees and contractors leading to improved collaboration between teams, higher efficiencies • Consistent work processes and dependable, quality data for deliverables, reliable reporting Case Study Major Engineering and Construction firm partners with Hexagon to improve project execution, cultivate confidence and trust in construction projects
