AVEVA releases major enhancements to AVEVA Plant

Integration with engineering applications leads to a new level of efficiency for engineering and design

Cambridge, UK – 29 September 2011: AVEVA (LSE:AVV), a leader in engineering design and information management solutions for the plant, power and marine industries, today announced the 12.1 release of its AVEVA Plant solution with enhanced reporting options, improved productivity and extended language support features. In addition, the enhancements enable effective project workflows, consistent change management and error-free deliverables designed to improve efficiency and save time.

The enhanced reporting options offer an efficient tool, with an enriched User Interface, enabling sharing across many of the AVEVA Plant modules and other AVEVA products. The new and improved capability means that users are able to create report templates via a wizard and can inserts images and charts, making it easier to use with a more professional presentation. Users benefit through the standard model library with the ability to reuse designs from existing built-in complex components, reducing the man-hours spent on the design.

Extended language support features and extended data exchange capabilities meet the requirements of AVEVAs global customer base, offering greater flexibility in multi-location projects involving different simultaneous languages. There is greater flexibility when working within an Integrated Engineering & Design environment due to the automatic creation of symbolic-type marine drawings from the model database, as well as general 2D drafting functions.

The benefits offered by AVEVAs Integrated Engineering & Design applications lead to an efficient overall project, with minimum elapsed time and cost, said Thierry Vermeersch, Product Strategy Manager Plant at AVEVA. The enhancements offered by the latest release of AVEVA Plant shows continual progression to meet the functionality requirements of our customers and deliver major innovations to the engineering and design community.

Product releases to follow include AVEVA Engineering, an application enabling multi-discipline engineering teams to concurrently create and maintain engineering objects and their attributes as a project is developed.
