RAIL AND TRANSIT
Four million passengers ride the nine Mass Transit Railway (M TR) lines in Hong
Kong every weekday. M TR’s existing drawing management system is based on
Project Wise technology and houses more than 1. 4 million as-built and working
engineering drawings. With 40 percent growth forecast for the number of
drawings, an upgrade was required to ensure its continued ability to record,
organize, control, and store drawings.
The drawing management system enhancements have improved searching
and drawing upload, tightened integration with CAD and building information
modeling software, and provided a more user-friendly interface for its 1,500
users. Collaborating in a single environment and navigating files in different
formats using a web browser, users more efficiently retrieve information from

Network Rail owns, runs, maintains, and develops Britain’s tracks, signaling
systems, 18 key stations, and more than 40,000 bridges, viaducts, and tunnels.
To meet rapidly growing demand, Network Rail developed a delivery plan for a
GBP 10 billion program from 2009 to 2014. Tough efficiency targets set by the
U.K. rail regulator require GBP 4. 1 billion in savings during this same period.
The design-to-cost project aims to contribute GBP 100 million in savings
by eliminating repetitive design, avoiding over-specification, and reducing
implementation time. A suite of standard designs will be accessible through
the Standard Design Catalogue (SDC) hosted by Project Wise. The Project Wise-managed environment will ensure that the SDC is up to date for its 4,000+
users, lowering Network Rail’s cost to design and deliver.
