RAIL AND TRANSIT
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 to store and manage all drawing attributes and linked
project attributes 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.
Redevelopment Station Area Utrecht–A Complete Makeover
Headquartered in Hyderabad, India, Infotech Enterprises has 8,700+ associates
in 30 global locations. Rail signaling services for the transportation industry
incorporate design inputs from associates located in multiple offices. Designs
include wiring diagrams, rack assemblies, power system arrangements, and
various signaling modules. Their correct integration is vital to safety.
Creating consistent signaling designs on paper created ambiguities for
stakeholders. Infotech replaced manual processes with MicroStation tools to
more efficiently deliver simple and legible designs. Project Wise is used to share
documents among global offices working on the same designs. Final designs are
sent to the appropriate authorities for installation, testing, and commissioning.
Installations are quick, cost-effective, and safe.
