AVEVA Continues its Future of Plant Design Initiative by Launching AVEVA E3D Insight

New technology will revolutionise 3D model viewing and approving for decision makers

AVEVA today launched AVEVA E3D Insight, the Windows 8.1 app that enables project decision makers in the power, process plant and mining industries to view and approve AVEVA Everything3D (AVEVA E3D) designs from a mobile tablet device. Developed in collaboration with Microsoft, AVEVA E3D Insight demonstrates AVEVA's commitment to anticipating and meeting changing customer requirements by offering the ability to inspect, comment upon, and approve designs at any time, from anywhere around the world.


AVEVA E3D Insight streamlines the design review and approval process to support Lean business practices. It maximises project efficiency by providing authorised users with direct access to the live AVEVA E3D design model, regardless of their location, 24 hours a day.

"We are thrilled to be partnering with Microsoft to support their strategy of 'devices and services', and the new wave of touch-enabled Windows 8.1 devices are providing exciting opportunities for both EPC and Owner Operator customers alike," said Dave Wheeldon, Chief Technology Officer and Head of Engineering Design & Systems, AVEVA.

"AVEVA E3D Insight enables our customers to improve their business practices, to collaborate more effectively across their projects and to eliminate the delays and decision bottlenecks caused by critical stakeholders being out of the office. In short, it gives them the tools they need to improve their decision-making. Whether reviewing project progress or discussing specific design issues, the new Windows 8.1 app from AVEVA provides global real-time direct access to AVEVA E3D information."

AVEVA E3D Insight enables users on the move to:

*Visualise - The user can see the AVEVA E3D model and its associated information quickly and clearly.

*Inspect - The user can inspect, manipulate and measure the model to check for such potentially critical issues as object clashes, accessibility and non-compliance with design standards.

*Comment - The user can liaise directly with the project's design team and leave a permanent record of feedback in the AVEVA E3D database itself. No more collating of comments is required and key decisions are recorded.

*Approve - Authorised users can set model status to customer defined approval levels.
