Aveva launched the Marine Business Value Calculator (BVC), an interactive application that illustrates the project cost savings, up to 30 percent across all disciplines, by adopting Aveva’s Integrated Engineering & Design solution.
“We have worked with experts in the industry who have given us credible project criteria with which to illustrate the achievable cost savings”, Bruce Douglas, Senior Vice-President, EDS Strategy & Marketing, Aveva. “As a result, we can confidently demonstrate major time and cost savings with Aveva Marine, which will give our customers significant competitive advantage.”
Based on data from authoritative industry sources and feedback from customers, the BVC enables users to project potential design and engineering cost savings as well as production man-hours and material savings when using the advanced discipline-specific modules from the Aveva Marine portfolio as compared with Tribon. Existing Aveva Marine customers will be able to see how they too can achieve further savings by using a broader selection of the Marine portfolio.
By selecting the vessel type and size, the BVC employs a number of predefined criteria based on typical marine industry standards, including splits between materials and labour, design and production, and hull and outfitting for different classes of vessel. Adjusting these input parameters to match a company’s existing cost structure on its typical types of project means that the BVC can provide a realistic projection of overall cost saving that that company could achieve.
