AVEVA showcases the Future of Steel Fabrication in North America

12 April 2016

AVEVA Bocad and AVEVA FabTrol combine to offer an end-to-end solution for steel design, detailing and fabrication, featuring at AVEVA’s Fabrication User Meeting and at the North American Steel Construction Conference (NASCC) in Florida.

Orlando, Florida: AVEVA today announced the next stage in its Future of Steel Fabrication initiative, designed to help Steel Fabricators cope with challenging market conditions. By bringing together two of the most respected technologies in the industry, AVEVA has created a complete end-to-end fabrication solution to offer its customers substantial improvements in efficiency and accuracy to enable them to amplify their competitive advantage.

The drive for efficiency improvements and the faster completion of projects across all capital industries and the AEC market is highly apparent. Increasingly, customers are turning to software to help them to ensure their fabrications teams get the right information at the right time.

Following its strategic acquisition and integration of structural steel detailing technology vendor, Bocad, in 2012, AVEVA further added to the portfolio with steel fabrication management solution vendor FabTrol Systems, Inc. in 2015. By combining the two application suites and adding new capabilities through its Research & Innovation team, AVEVA now offers its users powerful integrated solutions, tailored to the needs of the entire fabrication market.

‘Whatever the industry, everyone looks for long term sustainability, therefore we have heavily invested in our fabrication suite to support our customers in the fabrication market’, said Richard Brotherton, SVP – Fabrication, AVEVA. ‘Our industry research highlighted that there was not a comprehensive, tailored solution for the specific needs of fabrication yards, so this work represents merely the next step of a robust and innovative roadmap of development for both AVEVA Bocad and AVEVA FabTrol. Throughout the process, we will continue to engage with our customers and the wider market to ensure we continue to identify and develop the technology that represents the Future of Steel Fabrication. As part of that engagement with customers, we are particularly proud to be holding our first Fabrication User Meeting in North America—a key market—where we have many FabTrol customers. We shall also be showcasing the technologies at the NASCC.’
