GEA Process Engineering France
Engineering Collaboration Using ProjectWise
Saint Quentin en Yvelines, France
GEA Process Engineering France is increasing its business in emerging markets
via local companies supported by technology centers based in Europe. The goal
of this project was to provide a competitive design office and to develop activity
in the GEA Process Engineering (India) office in the upcoming years.
Using Project Wise and PlantSpace, GEA shared CAD management and library
development activities with other companies in the group. GEA’s milk and
chemical evaporation activities especially benefited from Project Wise,
which enabled the company to standardize the engineering organization
Redevelopment Station Area Utrecht–A Complete Makeover
Located in the center of the Netherlands, Utrecht hosts the country’s main
railway junction Utrecht Central Station. The number of travelers through the
station is expected to double in the next 20 years to 100 million passengers
per year. To expand capacity and add amenities, the municipality (Gemeente
Utrecht) tasked the project organization station (POS) department with
long-term redevelopment of the station.
The CAD department of POS has about 30,000 technical documents, but no
metadata was available to help search for proper document versions. POS
implemented Project Wise so now all drawing attributes and linked project
attributes are stored and managed by Project Wise in an Oracle database. This
has significantly improved access to documents for internal staff and external
partners, with time savings of up to 30 percent.
