Advantages & Value

Multi-Disciplinary Engineering For Owners & Operators

For Owners & Operators

  • Initiate conceptual design in 3D
  • Create and leverage reference skids, modules and facilities
  • Document and store corporate engineering & design: domain knowledge, standards, rules & guidelines
  • Bring forward constructability, safety and operability inputs earlier
  • Unite process, layout, construction, operations and project delivery personnel
  • Optioneer at conceptual design to balance Capex / Opex costs
  • Better data to support FID decisions
  • Provide a digital start to your Facility

The Results from Using OptiPlant

Earlier & More Efficent 3D Design and Engineering


Schedule & Man Hours Reduction


Transfer Time: Repetitive Engineering to Optioneering


Savings in TIC per unit of output

(From Repetitive Engineering Calculations to Optioneering for Value)

Entrench Compliance & Reduce Rework


Schedule + Man Hours Savings

(During Detail)

Earlier and More Efficient 3D Design and Engineering:

  • 30% – 50% fewer manhours(FEL/FEED)
  • 30% – 50% schedule reduction (FEL/FEED)

Transfer time (and $’s) from repetitive engineering calculations to Optioneering for value

  • 5% – 15% savings in TIC per unit of output

Entrench compliance and reduce rework:

  • Estimated up to 10% schedule + manhours savings during Detail

Gain and maintain control of your designs and the related knowledge and data

  • Priceless in every possible way

Designed for Concurrent / Multi-Discipline Engineering

We understand deeply the challenges posed by concurrent / multi-discipline engineering. Too many silo’s and integration challenges.

We designed OptiPlant to help.

  • OptiPlant utilizes automation, visualization and augmented intelligence technologies which enables teams to fundamentally change how people work and what they spend time working on.

Start the Design in 3D

  • Most projects start with the process engineer(s) in 2D or sometimes with Piping designers in the heavy 3D modelling tools
  • Our clients now start most projects in 3D immediately – using OptiPlant which is more nimble and efficient than 2D or detail engineering tools
  • This provides super early 3D visualization of layouts
  • Other disciplines on the team can now provide better input to the design earlier.

Automate Engineering Functions

  • Most of our clients have leaned out their internal engineering groups
  • The automation capability in OptiPlant helps fill this capacity gap
  • OptiPlant shifts the team focus from spending time on repetitive engineering and drafting functions to more time on value creation in the development of options and analysis

Re-imagine Early Design Work Practices

  • OptiPlant brings your people together from all disciplines via early 3D visualization…..this empowers a rethinking and reformatting of traditional work processes
  • We aren’t just software developers – we have an agile, lean engineering design layout team too
  • We’ve developed recommended practices guidelines to support your team in getting the most out of OptiPlant
  • Documented work procedures, checklists, and execution plans help your team adapt and transition to the new approach.
