AVEVA today announced the launch of the AVEVA Electrical Business Value Calculator (BVC), an interactive tool that illustrates the savings that can be achieved by adopting its latest electrical engineering software technology.
"In testing with our customers we have been able to demonstrate that our recently released AVEVA Electrical software can offer man-hour savings in design and engineering time," said Bruce Douglas, senior VP marketing and product strategy, AVEVA. "We have had extremely positive feedback from people using the software on a daily basis and the results have exceeded our expectations. The BVC enables engineers to see how and where the deployment of this latest generation software technology can greatly improve design efficiency. It helps to quantify the potential bottom-line cost savings that AVEVA Electrical can realise for their business.
"AVEVA Electrical has proved to be a key application within our engineering software," said David Vernier, Africa regional director, Cegelec Cameroon. "It is easy to configure and quick to deploy with minimal downtime, allowing our designers and engineers to start work immediately. The database is intuitive to populate, enabling the quick production of deliverables. Overall it is easily navigable, allowing for efficient data accuracy, leading to our achieving man-hour savings of 30% on all of our electrical engineering design."
Based on actual working practices and feedback from users, the BVC illustrates the savings that a business could achieve on a typical project by implementing AVEVA Electrical. Using simple parameters such as head count, hourly costs and the typical man-hours involved on a number of deliverables, the BVC enables users to input their own figures in order to calculate realistic time and cost savings that could be achieved in design and engineering in their particular business.
The BVC highlights the major time and costs savings benefits of AVEVA Electrical such as increased productivity, enhanced project quality and improved materials usage.
AVEVA Electrical uses the same systems approach as AVEVA Instrumentation. The applications can be used independently but even greater cost benefits are realised when they are used in combination through improved inter-disciplinary coordination.
