Project Engineers Welcome Factory Layout Solution at PPMA 2008

(PresseBox) ( Moers, Germany and Cambridge, UK, )
System integrators and machinery providers who supply turnkey solutions to customers often work with diverse design data and layout challenges that determine project time, cost and success. CAD Schroer Group (CSG), the global engineering solutions provider, addressed these issues at the Processing and Packaging Machinery Association (PPMA) Show 2008 in Birmingham, UK, and was met with keen interest from visitors and exhibitors alike. CSG showed project engineers how to speed up their production line design and layout process, reduce errors and win more business. The company has developed a unique solution for fast, integrated 2D and 3D layout and visualisation of factories and process plants, a vital missing piece of the project engineering puzzle, where lack of quick and easy access to realistic 3D layouts with clash detection often leads to miscommunication and costly mistakes in advanced project phases.

"I can't believe companies haven't been using a solution like this for years to lay out their production lines," said one industry consultant who has been in the business for over 20 years, "It's what we've all been looking for!"

A visitor whose company designs processing and packaging machinery, including complete processing lines, for some of the world's largest businesses, was equally keen. "We do most of our layouts in 2D, and that's becoming increasingly difficult as more companies are cramming more machinery into smaller spaces. Being able to do a layout based on a client's drawings of their factory, then visualise our process lines inside their building in 3D, run clash detection and show customers virtual factory walk-throughs would drastically reduce errors and design times. Customers are constantly changing their minds, so being able to make changes on the fly, and visualise them immediately, is a huge benefit."

"There were many more quotes like these - the show was a real success for us," says CSG UK Marketing Manager Anke Adams. "It was great to meet with so many enthusiastic professionals in the processing machinery business - we learned a lot from talking to project leaders, CEOs and engineers, all of whom had similar issues. Visitors as well as fellow exhibitors straightaway recognised the immense benefits of our solution in every project phase: winning more bids through quick but impressive visual tenders; avoiding extremely costly layout mistakes; easily communicating concepts to one's own staff, customers and suppliers; and having the right tool for looking after, reconfiguring or planning to move premises with existing process lines."

CSG's MPDS4 FACTORY LAYOUT solution allows users to quickly produce winning proposals or process plant layouts based on existing 2D and 3D data, with impressive 3D visualisations and walk-throughs. Changes can be made in 2D or 3D on the fly, and all data from the pre-sales or inception phase can be reused during the main project phase. MPDS4 FACTORY LAYOUT allows users to move efficiently between the enquiry, pre-sales layout, project configuration, installation visualisation, detailed design and factory maintenance stages, always ready to make drastic changes quickly.

CSG has already booked a stand at PPMA 2009, but project engineers don't have to wait that long. They can contact their local CAD Schroer office or visit for more information.
