New AVEVA Bocad Software Offers 30-40 Percent Project Savings

July 17, 2013

CAMBRIDGE, England, July 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –

New products, enhancements and greater 3D integration increase productivity for the
Plant and Marine industries

AVEVA announced today its release of new products and improvements in its AVEVA Bocad
range of structural steel detailing software. The new products will increase structural
detailing capability and enable more design standardisation and automation. Together, by
enabling more effective decision-making and increasing project transparency, these new
features offer potential project time and cost savings of up to 30-40 percent.

In addition, AVEVA Bocad has benefited from better integration with AVEVA’s 3D design
products – AVEVA Everything3D, AVEVA PDMS and AVEVA Outfitting. Engineering contractors
and fabricators working in the Process Plant and Marine industries will therefore be able
to achieve greater productivity and project quality. This can eliminate many sources of
errors, leading to time and cost savings.

AVEVA Bocad Steel, AVEVA Bocad Onshore, AVEVA Bocad Offshore and two new products,
AVEVA Bocad Tower and AVEVA Bocad Roof and Wall, have been developed to meet customer
demand for sophisticated, purpose-designed software to improve design and fabrication
efficiency in these specialist sectors.

Using these with the new AVEVA Bocad Steel Interface, AVEVA Plant or AVEVA Marine
users can now achieve a much greater level of design integration. Advanced change
highlighting and real-time updates enable swift and effective communication between design
teams to achieve major time and cost savings.

“It was important that we extended AVEVA’s Integrated Engineering & Design
capabilities to embrace the structural steel discipline”, said Bruce Douglas, Senior
Vice-President, EDS Strategy & Marketing, AVEVA. “AVEVA Bocad now works with AVEVA’s Plant
and Marine products, including all of our 3D design software tools. Engineers can now
supply accurate and timely deliverables to dramatically increase productivity and quality
throughout the fabrication and construction processes.”

EDC Consultants of Australia has been using Bocad software for over 12 years. Its
Managing Director, Chris Velovski said, “Using the Bocad software, we’ve developed some
really intelligent design automation that has astonished our partners. We can deliver
massive efficiency & cost benefits. Using the power of the Bocad software we have been
able to overcome any challenge, and I mean ANY challenge; we have not come across any
technical situation that Bocad has not been able to help us resolve. We look forward to
more exciting technology developments like this in the future.”

AVEVA Bocad is fully integrated into AVEVA’s Integrated Engineering & Design
solutions. This approach improves project efficiency and reduces engineering and design
costs by offering complementary products that draw on common processes, disciplines and
deliverables, through a single managed information model. For more information visit
