Product Data Sheet
CONSTRUCTSIM OVERVIEW
optimize your project through the planning, sequencing, execution and
monitoring of construction activities from within a virtual facility model
Built on top of the powerful Virtual Plant Model (VPM),
ConstructSim dynamically integrates 3D CAD, engineering
systems, project schedules, project controls databases,
materials management systems, and other digital information
to create an advanced construction simulation and
optimization environment. The VPM synchronizes data
across multiple ConstructSim applications in a distributed
network and manages the integration with other project
IT systems. As the information bridge, ConstructSim links
across the engineering, procurement, and construction
phases of a facilities lifecycle, delivering high value at an
affordable cost.
Organization By Project Areas
Automatically synchronize ConstructSim with the project
schedule. Re-organize materials components by craft
disciplines, material specifications, as well as construction
areas. Explicitly model the “parade of trades” through
construction areas. Develop priority lists for scheduling and
tracking materials procurement and engineering design by
construction area.
Organization By Systems
Re-organize the engineering model by “systems” for testing
and turnover. Visually monitor installation progress and
remaining installation tasks system-by-system. As the
project transitions from “installation by areas” to “testing
of systems”, re-prioritize and focus the daily installation
activities of your team to prepare systems for testing in the
required sequence and timing.
Material Availability
Monitor and track the procurement and fabrication process
for project materials released for construction. Visualize
the arrival of pipe spools on a daily basis, directing crew
resources to target installations in the areas where materials
are available.
Automated Task Planning
Group pipe systems into isometric sheets and spools as
delivered from the fabrication shop or procured as field materials.
Import a library of task “typicals” from the project
controls estimating database with associated unit rate and
cost codes. Generate a Level-4 database of project steps
from a Level-1 project schedule by automatically performing
material “take-offs” and matching every material component
with an associated set of task “typicals”.
Work Package Creation
Interactively plan in detail the ideal “grouping” of materials
into work packages weeks before needing to mobilize for
these activities in the field. Monitor the estimated hours for
a work package and evenly distribute workload across crews.
Virtually build a buffer of “optimal” work packages and
control the release of “quality” work sequences to the field.
Work Package Sequencing
Assign work packages interactively to crews and review
weekly sequences of work. Validate resource constraints as well
as site and equipment availability. Match material availability
against work packages through trial allocations, ensuring
work is not released to the field unless it can be installed.
Construction Status Review
Visually monitor the status of construction execution and
colorize the model based upon work “completedto-date”
as well as remaining work “to-be-completed”. Synchronize
activities within and across craft divisions, and identify
dependencies not readily observable in traditional project
management tools such as Gant charts and network
diagrams. Readily compare planned progress vs. actual
completion using a flexible time-based 4D schedule replay.
With an intuitive user interface, ConstructSim operates as a visual collaborative environment for your
team, providing a rich set of tools to specifically support the construction process. Through its powerful
features and functionality, ConstructSim increases productivity, drives down costs and reduces
project cycle-time, while providing improved risk mitigation and team safety.
