TRANSCRIPT

  • Weld Tracking, Documentation, and Reports

    It is important in most projects and critical in some to have

    complete traceability of welds. Who made the weld, and what were

    their qualifications, experience, and track record? How was the weld

    tested and did it pass? Did it need to be repaired? SmartPlant

    Spoolgen Plus can answer these questions, whether the weld is

    made in a fabrication workshop, a module assembly yard, or at the

    construction site. All the data can be collected in a simple, lightweight

    application, and then integrated together so that the owner or main

    contractor can have precise data at all stages of the project.

    Comprehensive weld-map documentation providing complete

    traceability for welds can be created automatically from the managed

    piping data, without the need for manual input. This includes material

    certificate and heat numbers, reports detailing welder performance,

    weld failure rates, NDE results, and so on. Such documentation

    helps the fabricator to monitor, measure, and control this critical

    business process.

    SOLUTION SHEET

    Automated Quality Assurance Documentation

    SmartPlant Spoolgen Plus supports the automated production of

    Quality Assurance (QA) documentation for the testing and certification

    of pipe spools in the fabrication workshop, and erection and commis-

    sioning of pipelines at the construction site.

    The documentation module is rule-based and supports the European

    Pressure Equipment Directive and American ASME standards for

    engineering design and piping manufacture. Templates for standard

    configurations are available and these can be easily modified for

    specific situations or project needs. By integrating the production of

    documentation with the corresponding engineering drawings and data,

    fabrication workflows can be simplified, data copying can be elimi-

    nated, and multiple isolated in-house systems can be rationalized into

    a single commercially supported package.

    SMARTPLANT SPOOLGEN PLUSAUTOMATED QUALITY ASSURANCE DOCUMENTATION, WELD TRACKING, AND PROGRESS MANAGEMENTIntergraph SmartPlant Spoolgen is a proven, industrial-strength application that enables the creation of piping isometric drawings for

    fabrication and erection from the design created during the detail engineering phase of projects. Customers quote tenfold productivity gains

    and the elimination of 95 percent of manual data entry. SmartPlant Spoolgen Plus starts with SmartPlant Spoolgen and adds integrated

    modules for management of piping data (including pipe supports), weld tracking and documentation, progress management and reporting, and

    quality assurance documentation.

    As part of Intergraphs integrated approach to procurement, fabrication, and construction, SmartPlant Spoolgen Plus works with piping data

    from almost any source and is tightly integrated with SmartPlant Construction. It supports the complex, distributed workflows typical of todays

    large and mega-sized projects.

  • Progress Management

    A typical construction project involves a complex interconnecting

    network of subcontractors. Due to the volume of work and the need to

    get pipe spools on site for construction at the right time, even

    moderately sized projects will normally involve a number of independent

    fabrication subcontractors.

    It is important that progress can be reported in a transparent and

    consistent way across all of the subcontractors. SmartPlant Spoolgen

    Plus supports a powerful progress measurement system. By defining

    specific milestones and measuring progress against them as pipe

    spools move through fabrication, testing, heat treatment, surface

    treatment, and final delivery to the construction site, accurate daily

    reports can be readily produced. At each step, workers on the shop

    floor can enter simple data into SmartPlant Spoolgen Plus, which is

    rolled up into comprehensive progress summaries. These provide key

    information to both the fabrication company and its customer, enabling

    schedule, cost, and quality to be controlled.

    Built-in Industry ExpertiseThe modules in SmartPlant Spoolgen Plus were developed by

    an industry expert and follow conventional industry practices.

    By combining these new modules with SmartPlant Spoolgen,

    Intergraph has created a unique solution for piping projects of all sizes.

    Appropriate TechnologyMany piping contractors are small and lack the IT infrastructure

    that a large engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC)

    company or construction company has. Being lightweight, easy

    to install, administer, and use, SmartPlant Spoolgen Plus provides

    tremendous value to even the smallest contractor.

    On the other hand, it can handle data from upstream systems

    such as SmartPlant 3D, PDS and CADWorx (and all major third-

    party 3D design systems that use ISOGEN), and feed forward

    documents and data to SmartPlant Construction and SmartPlant

    Enterprise for Owner Operators.

    This means one software solution can be used on projects of any

    size and complexity, and a piping contractor can work successfully

    with any customer.

    Proven Productivity Efficiency studies for piping maintenance projects conducted by

    industry experts have shown that SmartPlant Spoolgen Plus can

    reduce the time to handle a pipeline from 12.4 to 3.8 man-hours.

    This covers receipt of piping data in the form of issued-for-

    construction piping isometric drawings, through to fabrication,

    testing, erection, and final documentation for the client.

    Rapid Return on InvestmentSmartPlant Spoolgen Plus makes it possible to accelerate the

    execution of piping projects at lower cost levels without

    compromising on quality and accuracy, which leads to secure

    creation of value and assures a short-term return on investment.
