Pöyry Selects AVEVA PDMS as Preferred 3D Engineering Design Tool

Replacement of competitive solution leads to PDMS global roll out

Oslo, Norway – 17 April 2012: AVEVA (LSE:AVV), announced today that a global consulting and engineering company, Pöyry has selected AVEVA PDMS as its preferred 3D engineering design application to be deployed as part of its global work sharing, collaboration and efficiency strategy. The selection of AVEVA technology follows the recent conversion from a competitive 3D CAD application. PDMS has a strong user base today within Pöyry and that will now be increased further.

“We have selected AVEVA PDMS as our preferred tool for 3D engineering design due to its capability to combine global work sharing and AVEVA’s ability to support us in our offices around the world”, said Andreas Palmlund, Head of the Engineering Centre at Pöyry. “The business benefits offered such as greatly improved design efficiency and more cost effective work practices is a real advantage over competitive solutions. When client demand allows, we are phasing out the use of other 3D CAD applications in favour of PDMS, which enables us to work with the most advanced 3D technology and deliver ‘right first time design’.”

“For all of our EPC customers it’s critical to avoid rework that becomes increasingly more costly and disruptive as a project evolves”, added Helmut Schuller, Senior Vice President- Central and North EMEA, AVEVA. “Our products enable an Integrated Engineering & Design approach that tightly integrates all key engineering disciplines for major projects across global locations. This creates and maintains consistent designs throughout the project lifecycle, greatly reducing expensive rework and helping them to meet important project schedules.”
