11 URS - A Project Approach Delivers Results Process, Power & MarineCase Study of URS Deployment of SmartPlant Enterprise & SmartPlant 3DExcerpt of Session 2047 Presented at Intergraph 2008 conference by David Collett, Senior Project Director URS Washington DivisionCan a technology platform be delivered within cost and schedule constraints?How do you do it?Business CaseDetailed PlanningProject Execution – Scope, Schedule, CostStartup & Operation – DeploymentURS Case study – how to implement new tools, what planning and implementation strategies are required?
12 The Business Case – SmartPlant Enterprise Process, Power & MarineStandardizationBrings further efficiency and quality as work is completed similarly each timeEnables multi-office execution with global resourcesIntegrationData-centric approach and enhanced quality and efficiency through integrationCompetitive AdvantageSmartPlant architecture specifically designed to enable multi-office executionEnables leveraging of global resource base through standard processes and toolsLeveraging resources - SmartPlant efficiency allows lower costTesting shows high potential for reduction in design timesTight labor market is becoming a business reality - reduce impact of shortage of specialty technical resources in different locationsThe benefits of SPE based on the prior criteria are as noted.
13 Business Case - Implementation Approach Process, Power & MarineStrategic Initiative Sanctioned at Executive Level – VitalFocus on OutputsTest Out of the Box (OOTB) functionalityConfigure authoring tools to create standardized outputPilot test based on previously executed projectIntegrate through SmartPlant Foundation after configuration of individual toolsInitially located in HuntsvilleA Project Approach Delivers Results
14 Business Case - Why A Project Approach? Process, Power & MarinePrevious Experience with Technology ProjectsCulture ChangeLeadership from topA Marathon, not a SprintMaturity Cycle of PlatformClose access to IntergraphStrong ControlsFocus on outputs – No Disruption of Existing FunctionalityGain Confidence of PM Community – Key

23 Deployment - StrategyProcess, Power & MarineSingle Project to Start – Strong positive Feedback from ProjectAssure platform is ready for productionAssure support capability is availableBuild confidenceTraining and Support with Setup – Very PositiveSupport – Projects are not AloneCoachingMentoringImmediate correction of challengesProduction workIdentify and create administrators and super usersConfiguration Management a MustComplex systemTesting of new releases prior to productionAll architecture, system state, and settings maintainedMove to Next ProjectBuild resources
24 Deployment – Configuration Management Process, Power & MarineOnce standard configuration is deployed users have minimal local control to change. Supporting efficiency by consistency.
25 Deployment - StatusProcess, Power & MarinePrior versions of Intergraph tools have been used for yearsPDS, P&ID, & INtoolsAnticipate these will be in production for some time to comeNew URS Configuration of tools on 5 projectsSP P&ID, SP Instrumentation, SP 3D, SP FoundationSP Electrical not yet deployed – still configuring and pilotingEarly Feedback is PositiveBuilding Resource Pool to SupportWill not deploy Broader Than Ability to SupportPositive feedback so far rooted in support providedEngineering Services organization being deployed for global support
26 Deployment – Positive Results Process, Power & MarineEvery project in deployment providing positive feedbackCautious but encouraged by early developmentEstimates based on previous methods have been more than sufficient using new toolsProjects without prior experience in data centric systems are enamored by the ability to design and create data at the same timeReports, lists, data sheets, drawings, etc. are a by-product output
27 Deployment – P&ID and SPI Trends Process, Power & MarineEarly trends for URS Washington DivisionProjects continue to provide positive feedbackData integration between P&ID and SPISaves time because of enter once use manyAssures quality and consistency of dataEnforces consistent application of work processSavvy Project Managers realize time savingsData generation during designOutputs are a by-product of the processEnter once use many
28 Deployment – SP3D SPI Trends Process, Power & MarineEarly trends for URS Washington DivisionDesigners like consistent interfaceProductivity enhancement tools reduce design timeAfter training, designers do not want to go back to prior toolsA few comments from designersSP3D shines when design revisions occurRelationships between objects is a real time-saverIntegration with other tools makes “enter once use many” a reality; reuseable data saves timeDrawing generation saves a lot of timeDrawings by QueryVisibility when data has changed and drawing is out of date

36 Virtual Web-Based Training ~ SPVT ~ Overview 21-22 August 2008Hilton Opera HotelHanoi, Vietnam
37 What is SmartPlant Virtual Training? Process, Power & MarineSmartPlant 3D End User Training (available now)Hosted on a commercial LMS system by ElementKProvides access for up to 86 virtual sessions organized in courses for 1 yearAbility to track progressAbility to download tutorials and practice labs24x7 support with web site and forum for technical helpLearning Management SystemVirtual Instructor LedTrainingAdministrative Interface for Enterprise Customers37
38 Benefits of SmartPlant Virtual Training Process, Power & MarineQuality and ConsistencyExact same presentation regardless of time or locations - removes the variations introduced by individual instructorsPrepared experts for given topic from the product centersReviewed by customers & software designersEducationally sound materials, consistent terms across all topics, objectives, prerequisites & summary screens for every topic.Schedule CompressionUsers from multiple disciplines can learn simultaneously resulting in shorter startup time for projects starting with team new to SmartPlant 3D Typical reduction from 3 weeks to 1 weekAbility to train new members of the team earlier rather than waiting for class with minimum enrollment requirementsCost EffectiveList price of US $1200 per student is ½ of class room enrollment at US $2,500Further savings based on quantity in addition to travel costs
39 Frequently Asked Questions Process, Power & MarineDoes SPVT replaces traditional class room training?SPVT best suited for Roll-out scenarios, small & remotes teams of 3-5 users, or new additions to the teams. Traditional class room training best suited for CAE teams and Discipline Application Specialists (Super Users / Early implementation teams).Does SPVT requires 3D software License?SP3D / SM3D license is not required to purchase SPVT, however training experience is not complete without hands-on experience. Practice Labs provided with SPVT match up with training plant backup available on Siebel web site.Intergraph is exploring alternatives for making training environment available via web based virtual lab setup and/or providing increased access to regional training facilities at Intergraph Offices.What is plan to update the training to match new software versions?Intergraph plans to update training for every major version release. Scope of change depends on number of enhancements in new version. Our goal is to make training available as soon as new versions are released. Most likely users will get option to access version specific training sessions.Is there a certification/evaluation program to access skills after the training?Currently one question quiz is added to each session as trial basis, however answers are not tracked. Completion and time spent on each session is tracked. System is capable of handling certification requirements.
