EPLAN releases white paper on designing large plant
07 September 2016
EPLAN has released a whitepaper for the metal smelting and rolling mill industry sectors.
The document outlines the most effective and cost-efficient ways of designing plants that can keep British manufacturers ahead of the competition.
In recent years, the smelting and rolling mill industries have been forced to react to volatile economic and manufacturing conditions across the world, most of which have been brought about by the rise of the BRIC economies. This means that many British companies are finding it necessary to significantly restructure and optimise their engineering process from the bottom up.
By implementing an intensive modularisation concept and then introducing efficient, automated engineering systems, these companies can automatically link reusable templates and data from basic engineering to customer-specific plant documentation or to automation programs. This unprecedented level of design automation reduces design time and also increases quality of the documentation.
EPLAN’s white paper outlines the areas of activity that can be enhanced by the implementation of a ‘modularisation and reuse’ concept and the adoption of automated engineering processes. It also focuses on basic and detail engineering in electrical, plant automation and fluid.
Additionally, empirical values and outcomes, which have become evident due to the implementation of these engineering methods are also thoroughly explained and quantified in the whitepaper.
The result of many months of research and years of experience in the heavy industrial sector, this white paper can be downloaded free of charge from the EPLAN website.
