CAMBRIDGE, England, March 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

AVEVA E3D Insight is now available for commercial deployment

AVEVA today announced that AVEVA E3D Insight is now commercially available for project decision makers in the power, process plant and mining industries. This Windows 8.1 app enables mobile users to comment and approve AVEVA Everything3D (AVEVA E3D) designs from a 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 secure, direct access to the live AVEVA E3D design model, regardless of their location, 24 hours a day.

"Over the years we have seen how many companies struggle to effectively collaborate across their supply chain," said Bruce Douglas, SVP Product Strategy and Marketing, AVEVA. "AVEVA E3D Insight overcomes this challenge by providing an innovative and intuitive mobile platform on touch enabled tablets and laptops connecting directly to the design model and its community of designers. The improved reach and efficiency of collaboration that AVEVA E3D Insight brings is an important component of AVEVA's revolutionary Design for Lean Construction initiative. Initial feedback from customer evaluations, including WorleyParsons and Technip, as well as user meetings has demonstrated strong alignment with industry requirements."

Even before its full commercial release, AVEVA E3D Insight had already scooped the coveted UK tech award Tech Innovation of the Year, against strong competition from many of the UK's leading technology companies.

AVEVA E3D Insight enables users on the move to:

  • Visualise - The user can quickly and clearly see the AVEVA E3D model and its associated information.
  • 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. Key decisions are recorded without users being forced to collate multiple comments.
  • Approve - Authorised users can set model status to pre-configured approval levels.
