plant innOVatiOn Integrated Piping Engineering Tools in a Multiproject Engineering Environment at BASF Antwerp Basf antwerpen n.V. finalist BASF Antwerp is the second largest BASF site, with 53 chemical units and a total of 3,600 employees. BASF requested that Bentley automate and speed the flow of BOMs in its SAP system. BASF wanted design series projects to be set up quickly in a multiproject integrated environment to minimize project overhead. What resulted was a customized program that gathers all information from the IsoExtractor BOMs and creates the input for the BASF-developed ENSYS system, a front-end application for the SAP material requisitioning module. Synergetic efforts have resulted in a complete workflow that ranges from master data up to SAP material reservation. Bentley solutions used include PlantSpace Design Series, Bentley Structural, Bentley Architecture, and others. Hatch WorkSMART Data-Centric Environment hatch associates pty ltd finalist Proven on projects across Australia, South Africa, Chile, and Canada, the hatch WorkSMART Data-Centric Environment has become a corporate standard for data-centric project execution. It is currently in use on 10 major hatch EPCM projects across four continents. Data generated from the WorkSMART environment is used in MicroStation, Bentley Navigator, and an in-house commissioning control system to provide constructors with accurate information. Since the database provides access control, data is secure and centralized. The design data is linked to other data sources, enhancing stability and permitting further development of the environment. The integration of the project data and the engineering workflows has radically changed the way hatch looks at project data, and is rapidly changing the historical methodologies that its engineers have traditionally used. 136 ThE YEAR IN INFRASTRUCTURE 2007
