The studies pointed out that the industry faced many challenges when implementing computerization, and it is noteworthy that many of these same issues face companies today, such as: (RS8-3, p. 10)The costs associated with the acquisition and maintenance of systems.The cost of ... 6/20/2016 2:50:18 PM
Because of the front end costs of implementing design tools, the cost effectiveness is realized more by the downstream users than by the engineering company. Still, the industry as a whole benefits when procurement, construction, startup, and the owners are more efficient. (RS... 6/20/2016 2:51:00 PM
There needs to be great inter-compatibility between engineering software to avoid losing some of the benefits of the tools when companies share information. The lack of standardization and software compatibility are major obstacles to realizing the total benefit of a computeri... 6/20/2016 2:51:21 PM
The integrity of design can be improved by the advance planning required for organizing the flow of information between different engineering disciplines, and between preliminary engineering, vendors, and detail design. (RS8-3, p. 14) 6/20/2016 2:52:36 PM
The study analyzed the trends in computer skills, including: (RS8-3, p. 9)Training Project and corporate functional managers will require training to understand the technology and importance of design software, and the investment in time and resources required for implementa... 6/20/2016 2:52:55 PM
