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

Engineering Collaboration Using ProjectWise
Saint Quentin en Yvelines, France
To execute detailed design for a coal preparation plant improvement project in
New South Wales, Australia, Hatch had to draw upon discipline experts and
resources in five offices around the world. Project Wise facilitated work-sharing
and collaboration among the offices to maximize engineering and design
productivity. Caching servers were deployed locally for fast, LAN-like access.
With multiple disciplines working simultaneously in different locations and time
zones, Project Wise improved data security and interoperability. Appropriate
policy, security, and audit issues were explored and identified; and conformance
to standards and specifications among Bentley and third-party applications
was verified. This saved hours of remodeling. Hatch’s standard workflows and
practices were integrated into the system to ensure quality deliverables.
