Thomas Klenge
Development Engineer

Company
The Dürr Group is a leading global provider of products, systems and services for automobile production. It has around 7,300 employees and achieved annual sales of 1.9 billion euros in 2011.

Starting situation
The creation of commissioning documentation mostly done by hand took too long. This cumbersome process was caused by the drawings and schematics that were used as a basis and which had been created in many different formats. They all had to be consolidated into one document.

Solution
The PlantEngineer software on a Microsoft Office Visio 2010 basis makes it easy to quickly create any commissioning documentation. Central data access and standardized graphics are always available for all documents.

“PlantEngineer seamlessly integrates to Dürr Microsoft Office package. Furthermore it provides detailed information about the project at any time via central database. All media disruptions are eliminated and the quality of data and documents have been increased”

Results

“With PlantEngineer now we are able to create in three to four days system documentation. Before that took us a maximum of four weeks”.

The time required for system documentation and design has dropped significantly. All documents hold now a consistently high quality level. Expensive external orders are not needed any longer, instead our employees are able to customize diagrams and drawings themselves

Improvements
PlantEngineer ensures greater efficiency, data quality and overall is easy to learn, thanks of its Microsoft Office user Interface. The DÜRR Systems GmbH use the based Microsoft Visio solution worldwide in all of their branches.

• Increase project and data quality
• time spent on projects is greatly reduced
• Optimal integration into the Microsoft Software

Software in use and Services
• Microsoft Office
• Microsoft SQL Server
• Microsoft Visio

Company
The Dürr group is a leading global service provider of products, systems and services for the automotive production in 25 countries and achieved annual sales of 1.9 billion euros in 2004.

Initial situation
The creation of commissioning documentation mostly done by hand was very expensive. This cumbersome process was caused by the drawings and schematics that were used as a basis and which had been created in many different formats. They all had to be consolidated into one document.

Solution
The PlantEngineer software on a Microsoft Office Visio 2003 basis makes it easy to quickly create any commissioning documentation. Central data access and standardized graphics are always available for all documents.

“The usual time pressure when creating the documentation is now finally history. Thanks to the Office Visio 2003-based PlantEngineer, we were able to create the commissioning documentation more efficiently, faster and with higher quality.”

Advantage

“The time needed for plant design and documentation has been reduced considerably. All documents are of a consistently high level of quality. Expensive outside contracts are no longer necessary, since the employees are able to produce the drawings and schematics themselves.”.

By using PlantEngineer all assembly and commissioning data directly at the construction site and then transfer the data to a central database. This database provides the project status or detailed information at any time.

“If you know how to use Excel and PowerPoint, then it is easy to learn how to use PlantEngineer”. Though the well-known of Office-Interface of Microsoft Visio the program can be used easily without previously CAD knowledge. The uncoordinated creation of procedure schematics and the compilation of information meant time consuming of manual work in conjunction with data redundancies and generally high rate of errors. Due to the many isolated solutions in the individual departments, there was no possibility of centrally accessing to all data, which made it difficult to maintain, release and revise the solutions.

Furthermore the different technical departments, specialized in construction, often were used different names for symbols and components for the commissioning documentation, because there were no uniform graphic standards. We are extremely pleased with the results of PlantEngineer and we recomend this software worldwide for the creation of commissioning documentation.”
