eShare for Engineering, Procurement and Construction

The central web hub of all project information for every stage of the project lifecycle.

EPC projects require managing vast amounts of information across different project phases, from engineering, procurement, construction and installation to the handover to the client.

eShare’s powerful integration and visualization of information across the entire project saves time and leads to more accurate and timely decision-making.

One window to all project related data

Use the 3D model as the window to access all related project data, including PDM/PLM, procurement and tracking or ERP. Data can be published to eShare from CADMATIC design applications, converted from other CAD formats or loaded from external files or databases or linked with other systems.

The 3D model is not just an additional instance, but the central connecting hub of the whole project.

Linked 3D model and 2D drawings provide a unique experience in eShare

With one click on a 2D drawing, you can find the item in the 3D model and all other related documents. The 3D model is not just an additional instance, but the central connecting hub of the whole project.

Facilitate project change management and control the construction phase and planning with the 3D model as a discussion board.

Store comments saved on top of the 3D model with labels and dimensions, compare the model with previous versions or send an email with the attached picture.

Support decision making in the commissioning phase

Follow the certification process from equipment suppliers with the visualization of status information. Create test packs and collect all related information.

Add more information on top of the 3D model and use all the data for decision facilitation.

Smart points in the model can store silent knowledge or even be linked with data from instruments. The extensive search functionality allows the location of any needed information. Any data from eShare can be used for visualization purposes.

Use 3D captured data from Laser Scans

Once point clouds are added to the eShare server, users can directly navigate to between the point clouds that will be shown in photorealistic views and see point clouds alongside the 3D model. It is possible to measure distances between the cloud and 3D objects, add smart points to store notes or other extra information related to the point cloud.

Follow Engineering Progress

Categorization based on the stress calculation status of lines.

Allows using a 3D model to check related activities:

  • Check the status without the need to read any documents
  • Complete control of engineering data
  • Maximize the benefits of using the 3D model

Improved Flow Checks

  • 5 times faster flow check than a typical manual process
  • P&ID with color links based on presence/absence of the object in the 3D model
  • Focus on the missing parts to solve problems
  • Human error during time-consuming control is avoided

Constructability

  • Integration with feasibility/constructability analysis system
  • Visualization of categorization based on data about pipes feasibility/constructability
  • Faster and easier decisions during construction
  • No need for training on different solutions to check the data

eShare combines data for:

  • prefabrication analyses
  • site warehouse management
  • prefabrication & construction
  • progress monitoring

Use 2D documentation to access project data

eShare stores all kinds of project documentation: 2D layout drawings, isometrics, P&IDs, sketches, equipment documentation and manuals and much more. Documents containing labels can be used as an interface to the 3D model and to search for items. 2D and 3D data is linked automatically based on project rules.

Additionally, 2D drawing links can be colored according to the data: availability in the 3D model, status of installation progress, compatibility of components or flow directions.
