Top Reasons Digitizing Your Design Management is to Future Success

Long gone are the days when it was acceptable to lose man-hours due to a hardware crash or a software failure, such as a malware infection. While you’ve been mitigating this problem by backing up your pressure vessel and heat exchanger designs, it still doesn’t solve the biggest task at hand: ensuring all interested parties are able to view, edit, and work on the latest design revision. Let’s be frank: How often has your team wasted time because employees made design revisions or started fabrication using obsolete revisions? 

Fortunately, there’s an easy solution. With modern pressure vessel design software, you can easily ensure the right people have access to your design’s source of truth. With CEI’s DesignCalcs software, focused on ASME Section VIII, Div 1 or with Finglow PV design software, focused on PD5500, EN13445, ASME Section VIII, Div. 1 & 2, your organization can share data. You will ensure that everyone (from your designers, production control, MRP systems, and inspectors) are working with the right data. With CEI software and integration services, you can design remotely in multiple locations and enjoy the freedom and security to support code compliant fabrication globally.

Take Advantage of Customized Solutions with Modern PV Design Software

Additionally, workflows can be set to give different people unique privileges to make sure the right roles on your team have access to the right data, at the right time. For example, once the engineer has signed off on the design, you can give the pressure vessel designer “read-only” access to the data so they don’t mistakenly make changes after the engineer has given the green light.

Even more, with CEI’s Professional Services, you can ensure your supplemental calculations, custom reports, and documents are also synced up, ensuring a seamless and streamlined process. 

Need to incorporate exotic materials, unique reliability requirements, or unique workflows? Maybe, for example, one of your customers takes a more conservative approach to their nozzle reinforcements, but you don’t need to enforce that on your other customers. With CEI’s Custom Applications Services, you can customize to each of your customer’s preferences. 

When you’re ready to experience these benefits and more, CEI can help! Discover how you can efficiently integrate your ERP and project management systems to experience saved time, money, and effort.
