项目概要

项目

自从将 60% 的项目承包给了联盟合作伙伴后,Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) 便试图创建一个协同式承包商流程,以简化工程图控制,管理信息安全,集中管理工程图数据库和减少文档瓶颈。这个造价 450,000 美元的项目使 Substation Engineering Services (SES) 无需聘用工程图管理员,并且还能加强文档控制,确保设计一致性,缩短所有 PG&E 承包项目的周期。为了满足这些需求,SES 需要高效、集成的技术在安全的环境中操作。

解决方案

通过部署 Bentley Substation 和 ProjectWise 在内部设计变电站,每年节约了 500 万美元成本,SES 将 Bentley 软件的应用范围扩大到了 PG&E 承包商,为他们提供 PG&E 环境的访问权限。通过一个安全的 Citrix 连接实施 Bentley Substation 和 ProjectWise ,使 PG&E 能够与承包公司展开变电站设计协作,并提供所有应用程序优化运行所需的信息安全、支持功能和实时带宽。

成果

允许承包商在安全环境中直接、实时地访问 PG&E 的工程图和数据库,显著缩短了项目交付时间,促进了有效的协作,减少了以前因工程图控制不到位而发生的错误。Bentley 软件的优越性使承包商无需再聘用工程图管理员,每年为 PG&E 节省 65,000 美元运营成本。因每个设计合同的资本订单效率提高,导致费用节省高达 35%,最终预计 PG&E 每年将节省 500 万美元。

软件

承包工程师使用 Bentley Substation 和 ProjectWise 提高了信息移动化,从而所有承包商都能够同时在 PG&E 环境中工作,实时访问同一个数据库。Bentley 技术的错误检查、自动化、三维建模和协同式功能为 PG&E 提供特殊文档和版本控制,增强了数据安全性,缩短了滞后时间,提高了变电站设计师的协作效率,减少了以前因工程图控制不到位而发生的错误。 

Outcome/Facts
  • To optimize design on the 60 percent of contracted design projects, SES implemented a collaborative solution that allowed external contractors to securely access and share PG&E’s substation drawings in Bentley Substation and ProjectWise.
  • Allowing contractors to use Bentley solutions via a secure connection improved PG&E’s document control, ensured design consistency, reduced cycle times, and saved an annual USD 65,000 by eliminating the need for a drawing administrator.
  • The Bentley-based solution improved information mobility, reduced design errors, and optimized project delivery time, resulting in efficiencies of up to 35 percent per contracted design order.
  • Based on its annual savings of USD 5 million resulting from the internal use of Bentley software, PG&E expects to realize the same ROI by extending the software to its contractors.
Quote:
  • “Over the last several years PG&E has enjoyed a fruitful partnership with Bentley. With the completion of our Engineering Contractor Collaboration Solution, we are proud to bring our external contractors on board and include them in this partnership. As a result we are collaborating more effectively, efficiently, securely and confidently with our contractors in order to achieve greater success in overall project delivery.”
