Cargill Starches and Sweeteners
Wheat Starch Plant
Manchester, United Kingdom
In this $120 million project, Cargill Starches and Sweeteners modified its Wheat
Starch Plant in Manchester, United Kingdom, to accommodate the processing of
a completely different raw material. High accuracy in design was essential for
avoiding any spills and leakages since food alcohol is a highly taxed product.
Project teams for different disciplines were located in United Kingdom,
Germany, and the central office in the Netherlands. Project Wise and
AutoPLANT proved to be the most efficient for integrating all disciplines –
including civil requisition, piping, and equipment modeling – with the main
equipment supplier’s input.
China Huanqiu Contracting & Engineering Corp.
Establishing a Collaborative Content Management Platform
China Huanqiu Contracting & Engineering has five subsidiaries throughout China
with more than 1,000 employees. The company had multiple systems for project
management in 2D and 3D design, which made it difficult to share and exchange
engineering information among systems. To more accurately and efficiently
manage engineering content during the entire lifecycle of projects, the company
deployed Project Wise.
Design teams from different locations were connected using Project Wise’s
distributed functions, enabling team members to access the latest versions of
project files. The Project Wise collaboration system allows teams to customize
sets of attributes suitable for different projects and to expand functionality to
meet specific needs. With Project Wise, engineers save 30 percent in man-hours
due to efficient information sharing and searching.
