plant multi-discipline design Yumsung Project in China durr Korea Durr Korea designed an automobile production facility in Yumsung, China, for KIA Motors of Korea. The firm previously used AutoCAD for design, but had experienced interference problems and errors between disciplines. Bentley’s PlantSpace helped the firm verify design procedures and manage interference checks in a 3D modeling environment. This enables each phase of the project and each of the many disciplines involved to be more tightly integrated, which reduced errors and saved time. The use of 3D modeling interference checks enables each phase of the project and each of the disciplines involved in the project to be more tightly integrated, increasing the efficiencies of workflows, improving accuracy, and saving time and money. Rose Unit ford, Bacon & davis, inc The Rose Unit $52 million reconstruction project in Meraux, Louisiana, took 14 months to complete. This fast-tracked project involved large bore thick-wall pipe, jacketed pipe, and very high temperatures. In addition, the software used needed to interoperate with Caesar II pipe stress analysis. Through the use of Bentley’s interoperable AutoPLANT solutions, the project team was introduced to 3D modeling inexpensively and with positive results. For example, the plant’s stress analysis duration improved by at least 50 percent, and the ability to seamlessly transfer piping in the model to stress engineers and back again saved a lot of man-hours. Total time saved on the project was six months, and this translates into $20 million in additional production that would otherwise have been lost. 122 ThE YEAR IN INFRASTRUCTURE 2007
