Jabail, Saudi Arabia
The design of a new $1.5 million petrochemical plant to produce polyethylene
in Jubail Industry City, Saudi Arabia, involved 15 team members. Because
the number of document transfers exceeded the functionality of the system,
transporting document folders and drawing information across the project
team became complicated. The project team deployed Project Wise as the
collaboration server and access-control system and implemented AutoPLAN T
to create intelligent 2D and 3D drawings.
The seamless collaboration system allowed plant engineers to find and verify
data quickly without producing hard copies. Project Wise’s data sharing and
exchange capabilities ensured the delivery of required information to the right
team member when needed. Visualizations produced by Bentley’s AutoPLAN T
software enabled the project team to fully manage project transmittals and
deliver the project to the client within the given time frame.

Visualization: A Leap of Faith
SNC-Lavalin’s Australian business unit was an early adopter of Project Wise
Navigator V8i, and integration within the current V8 XM Edition environment
was achieved by using Project Wise distribution services to extract models,
using simple batch files to automate scheduled model creation, and managing
overlay files in Project Wise V8 XM Edition.
Project Wise Navigator V8i ensures a stable, intelligent, and detailed review
model to present to project teams and the client’s engineering staff. Reviewers
provide feedback via mark-ups, and engineers provide direct 3D input into the
design process. Model load times are reduced by up to 80 percent, with model
sizes reduced by up to 60 percent, and clashes are resolved sooner.
