Hawaiian Electric Light Company
The Advantages of a Managed Environment
Hilo, Hawaii, United States
Hilo-based Hawaiian Electric Light had previously used network drives for
engineering information storage and retrieval, which had resulted in information
being scattered throughout the organization with no document control or
centralized access. Multiple versions of engineering drawings existed apart
from the network, making it difficult to locate current versions and associated
reference files. This had a major impact on productivity.
The company implemented Project Wise Integration Server to provide
more efficient engineering content management and improved information
workflows. Project Wise enables users to quickly locate pertinent project
information including drawings, reference files, specs, and correspondences.
Using Project Wise, the team also identified inconsistencies in work processes,
which will ultimately improve service delivery to electric customers.
Huf Haus GmbH & Co. KG
Huf Haus Manufactured Houses
Huf Haus specializes in post-and-beam architecture featuring sustainable
design. The company replaced outdated architectural design software
with Bentley speedikon for MicroStation. Bentley provided support during
implementation, as well as troubleshooting and training on the vast array of
Bentley applications enabled Huf Haus to leverage design data from the past 20
years. Product customization allowed designers to apply sophisticated design
standards in 3D BIM models, then create 2D production drawings.
