Structural steelwork is a major cost in most engineering projects, but it can also account for a disproportionate level of construction issues.
Steel detailing is often outsourced to specialist contractors. This can disrupt integration between design and manufacturing, opening a project up to risks of inconsistencies, costs and delays.
Scheduling is also impacted by having multiple teams and disciplines working differently and using different systems. Project efficiency can be affected, leading to delays, wasted time and increased cost.
Cross-discipline collaboration across supply chain is necessary but difficult to manage effectively without one central hub for information sharing. This can lead to an increased risk of errors and potential rework.
Bocad gives us so much competitive advantage that we would not be the business we are today without it. No other solution could do this.Chris Velovski (MD), EDC Australia
Once our designers met the software and recognised its potential, they were convinced. Companies using other systems can spend huge amounts of time manually editing 2D deliverables. But AVEVA Bocad’s fabrication drawings and CNC data are automatically generated and substantially shop-ready.Ramón Núñez, Engineering Director, Dragados Spain
