Company and Product News

AVEVA announced three add-ons to AVEVA E3D Design, which infuses AI capabilities into its advanced engineering design software to help maximize efficiency through cloud collaboration. The company also announced a sustainability enhancement for AVEVA Process Simulation, an integrated platform spanning the process engineering lifecycle of design, simulation, training, and operations.

The latest enhancements of AVEVA E3D Design and AVEVA Process Simulation help to empower organizations from chemicals, oil and gas, power, marine, and mining, metals and minerals to design more sustainable processes and plants at the speed the market demands. The new AVEVA E3D Design add-ons help to improve engineering quality and efficiency through more expedited, streamlined design processes, while AVEVA Process Simulation helps to enable organizations to move beyond linear workflows, which can be wasteful, to implement circular, more sustainable processes.

AVEVA E3D Design

The first add-on, AVEVA E3D Whitespace Optimizer, is used to automatically complete drawings, which can help to reduce staff-hours and project design costs. The second add-ons, AVEVA Model Simplification and AVEVA Native Model Simplification, are used to achieve a reduction in design file size through the simplification of imported CAD models, which can help to enhance software performance so engineers can work more efficiently with greater ease and accuracy. The final add-on, 3DFindIt, is used to help enable customers to directly import vendor-supplied CAD models of mechanical equipment to allow them to more quickly and easily design digital twin models.

AVEVA Process Simulation

The new features of AVEVA Process Simulation put sustainability at the center of process design. This can help engineers to work smarter while designing for a more sustainable world. The new renewables library includes models to help design renewable power generation networks for wind turbines, solar panels, electrical distribution, and hydrogen electrolysis. With minimal additional effort, engineers can track greenhouse gas emissions from an early design concept using the same workflows they would use to analyze and better optimize profitability and efficiency.
