Case Study Shinseigiken Engineering, Japan Shinseigiken Engineering Digitalizes 3D Models with Hexagon Solutions to Deliver an Integrated Engineering Environment Shinseigiken Engineering was the first company in the industry to lead the development of the 3D design for industrial facilities with more than two decades of engineering design experience and has since achieved many milestones. Chemical plant projects that are built-in harsh outdoor environments pay high importance on 3D models of the facilities, where on average about 70 design engineers use 3D design tools for piping isometric drawings on a total annual pipe length of between 130,000 to 150,000 meters The company's goal is to build a robust IT ecosystem to stay ahead of the competition and its expanded business to support small to large engineering projects in the region. Increased project delivery efficiency and improved engineering data accuracy Mr. Fujii, Managing Director at Shinseigiken Engineering, shares his insights on staying ahead of the competition with a robust 3D design software and about the decision to move from AVEVA™ PDMS which they have been using for many years to Intergraph Smart ® 3D. "We have been working on 3D engineering design for more than 20 years, however, when we thought about our medium to long term vision for the future, we were confronted with the fact that we would not be able to be competitive if we only used the functions of the existing 3D design software we had been using. We felt that we needed to rethink the way we were going things including the functionality of our 3D design software to further improve work efficiency, overall productivity and reduce costs to stay competitive." Transitioning from old to new; how did it all begin? Shinseigiken Engineering is working towards enabling seamless interoperability with legacy systems, databases across multiple project sizes and partners. Their previous 2D engineering drawings were managed on a file-by-file basis and were not flexible enough for multiple users to access at the same time. Key Facts Company: Shinseigiken Engineering Co.
