Case Study Hering AG improves project efficiency and productivity using Hexagon's solution Identifying Goals Hering AG is a market leader for custom heat exchangers, designing and manufacturing shell and tube heat exchangers setting standards in quality, design, and function. Hering's heat exchangers are continuously improved, last longer, and function more efficiently. Parallel to this, continuous investment and evolving development and refinement of their products have introduced new application areas in many global industries. The company was working on a supply of heat exchanger equipment for a mining project in Canada, where exploration of the mine needed a lot of energy. The client wanted a heat recovery unit supplier to help with energy management in the mine. This project was 6–8 months long and challenging regarding the size of the equipment to be manufactured and installed and the timeline to deliver and have everything working in–situ. This was a massive project; the goal was to deliver the units in record time with the right calculations performed and approved while ensuring they could meet all their clients' needs. Overcoming Challenges Hering AG has a global customer base, selling products manufactured in accordance with ASME and EN standards. They usually relied on external companies to perform code calculations. Having a large number of projects to execute, they found that when they needed to outsource the calculations, the external contractors they relied on couldn't always meet the project timelines due to insufficient resources. The main challenge was predicting how long it would take for external agencies to complete their work, making it hard to plan and deliver their projects effectively.
