Genpro Increases Investment in Aveva Software

(Press Release)
Tuesday, March 06, 2012

Rio de Janeiro – Genpro announced Genpro Engenharia S.A. has made a significant new investment in AVEVA PDMS software, after achieving substantial engineering and business benefits from its existing implementation.
A key reason for GENPRO’s selection of PDMS is the software’s ability to easily interface with other engineering disciplines, while delivering the highest possible production output. The result has been improved design quality and shorter project schedules, which has led directly to GENPRO’s new investment in additional PDMS licenses. GENPRO will be using AVEVA PDMS on a number of large projects in the rapidly-growing Brazilian chemical, petrochemical and nuclear sectors.
“AVEVA PDMS interfaced very successfully with our mechanical, piping, electrical and instrumentation applications, as well as other engineering disciplines. It has proven to be uncomplicated to install, straightforward to manage, and the training time for our engineers has been surprisingly short,” said Waldir Pimentel Junior, Corporate Systems Manager, Genpro. “Much of our work involves large engineering contracts, which have very tight schedules, and we are unwilling to compromise on design quality as pressure on delivery and budgets increase.  We were impressed with the new features within PDMS, since they allow us to work faster while meeting our quality standards. A major selling point was the capacity for customization, which allows us to create features for our own modeling requirements and methodology. To date, all of our projects using AVEVA solutions have been delivered on time, within the original budget and, most importantly, they meet or exceed our customer’s quality standards. Further investment with AVEVA is an essential strategy for the overall growth of our business.”
