How to streamline challenging engineering processes

article picture: Quality data in the focus:

Digitalisation, standardisation and automation are all trends that no industrial sector can evade right now. This also holds true for the maritime industry and for planning equipment and systems. When looking for software solutions for gaining efficiency, global companies are in search for integration, says Petri Huhtala, Regional Sales Coordinator from EPLAN. Top quality functions in engineering software are of course important, but as important is also the quality data base, and ability to re-use data.

Importance of quality data

Experienced software solution provider EPLAN, which offers electrical, automation, and PI and layout-software, is focused on connections. EPLAN develops one of the world’s leading design software solutions for machine, plant, and panel builders, and is ideal partner to streamline challenging engineering processes.

Huhtala explains the optimal workflow: “The data importance starts already from the planning phase, where electrical engineers can find quality component data from EPLAN Data Portal component library, which offers more than 1 000 000 component datasets from various, known manufacturers. This data can then be stored in company’s database, where it remains updated, and it is easy to administrate and re-use in uniform representation.” Based on this, schematics are reliably created, and with macros, those can be later automated as well. “Wide range of up-to-date data can be transferred to various ERP or PDM systems with direct integration, which creates speed and quality in cumulative way,” explains Huhtala.

Integration makes engineering project work more efficient

When working in networked industrial eco-system such as maritime, there is multiple companies in the project. With EPLAN’s newest cloud solution launches, the benefits for fluent data sharing within the ecosystem becomes easier: the project can be safely shared, edited, or viewed, depending on given rights, within all project parties, no matter internal or external ones.

EPLAN solutions offer the possibility to design, display and document your ship‘s entire operation technology, including P&ID, HVAC and the electrical engineering within your system landscape. This integrated data basis can then be enriched into functional digital twins – from single components to bigger project.
