Case study: Cadac Organice on using Microsoft Sharepoint for efficient project collaboration
Project collaboration case study
Cadac Organice has produced a case study about engineering project collaboration — both internal and external — using Microsoft Sharepoint.
Within project-driven engineering industries, companies collaborate in project teams. For example, in the owner/operator market, owners collaborate with contractors, subcontractors, vendors and suppliers.
When collaborating, it is important that information is shared efficiently, ensuring that everyone has the right information and is aware of their tasks.
According to Cadac Organice, collaboration requires a flexible environment for managing, sharing and exchanging information and documents.
In addition, companies need to be able to support any form of collaboration with external partners — whether they depend on paper, can communicate through email or are able to collaborate digitally using an extranet environment.
Case study highlights
- How project teams can manage and share documents with internal disciplines and external partners
- How documents can be exchanged on paper, through email or through extranet collaboration
- How these exchanges of documents can take place in line with individual requirements, capabilities and contractual relationships
Cadac Organice has issued a case study about owner operators and external partners in the oil and gas, energy, process and mining industries collaborating on CAD drawings in Microsoft Sharepoint.
Cadac Organice software is enabling ABB, a provider of power and automation technologies for utility and industry customers, to manage its AutoCAD drawings in Sharepoint. The software also provides the company with more functionality and flexibility.
The Pro Panel engineering software from EPLAN is claimed to enable companies to achieve savings of up to 75 per cent on wiring time and up to 50 per cent on layout and mounting time. Users can also achieve a 50 per cent increase in overall productivity.
