Intergraph has released Smartplant Fusion 2014, the latest version of its solution for engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) companies and plant operators to rapidly find, capture, organise, link and visualise large volumes of information through a simple web portal. Trustworthy engineering data and documentation are essential to effective project delivery and safe, efficient operations. However, EPCs and owner operators struggle to manage large volumes of unstructured, unmanaged information – documents, drawings, models, lists and datasheets that exist in multiple formats and locations. This lack of control can lead to duplication, fragmentation and degradation of information integ-rity, and even its outright loss.
Smartplant Fusion 2014 delivers several functionality enhancements for addressing those problems, including faster document loading, improved user experience and navigation, a reporting and charting engine with a num-ber of out-of-the-box reports for document lists, tag lists, document status, tag-document relationships and more, improved integration with Leica Truview laser scans for more intuitive naviga-tion; and multi-site capability. Smartplant Fusion also provides interoperability with Intergraph’s template solutions for EPCs and owner operators.
