SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 27, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ASD Global, the industry leader in software solutions for Front End Loading (FEL), Front End Engineering Design (FEED), early stage Detail Design, and project Construction planning, joins Intergraph's SmartPlant® Alliance, interfacing its products—OptiPlant, Pipe Router, and Pipe Support Optimizer with Intergraph Smart™ 3D—providing an integrated solution for reducing costs and increasing productivity for Owner/Operators (O/Os) and EPCs in process, offshore, shipbuilding, and metals and mining industries.
Smart 3D users can leverage OptiPlant's unique capabilities much earlier in projects, obtaining cost and schedule estimates earlier, reducing overall design, engineering, and construction costs, and bringing projects in on-time and under budget, all by "designing in" the lowest overall lifecycle operating costs and being able to visualize what those costs will be very early in the project. Project execution is significantly improved, and the optimized results translate into improved productivity for Operations and Maintenance (O&M) of new or upgraded facilities.
"We are very pleased to be an Intergraph SmartPlant Alliance Partner," Sonali Singh, president, ASD Global, stated. "ASD's commitment is to provide open software solutions to our customers where data is re-usable. We are excited to be working with Intergraph to allow our common users opportunities to reduce engineering design schedules and engineering re-work."
Patrick Holcomb, Intergraph Process, Power, & Marine executive vice-president of global business development and marketing, said, "We are pleased to welcome ASD Global to the SmartPlant Alliance and to offer our customers new and innovative solutions that improve their productivity and competitive edge. This alliance will significantly shorten the engineering cycle, and provide earlier and more accurate cost and time estimates, enabling our joint customers to execute projects faster and with less risk."
