Seminar Singapore, 7th September 2012

Tuesday, September 11th, 2012

Computer Line Associates and Team Design Solutions had successfully conducted our first jointly organized “IT Automation” seminar in Singapore on the 7th September 2012. Participants from local and international EPCs attended the Seminar.

The aim of the seminar is to stimulate, provide and share with participants within the industry, practical ideas and perspectives towards automating and improving the efficiency & effectiveness of engineering practices relating to Piping Material Management software using PUMA5/ELENA/COSMO5 software by Computer Line Associates.

During the seminar, our distinguished speakers together with the participants engaged in active discussions as well as sharing of ideas and experiences regarding the challenges relating to Piping Material Management in Engineering Project. Participants were also treated to demonstration using on-line access to the software based on real project data to highlight how the Computer Line Associates portfolio of engineering tools could manage these challenges in a simple and practical manner.

Computer Line Associates and Team Design Solutions would like to thank all participants for their active participation and we look forward to organizing more of such events in the very near future.

Progress management in Cosmo5

Sunday, September 12th, 2010

A new version of Cosmo5 is about to be released, the most important new feature is the addition of the prefabrication, construction and installation progress monitoring.

The new features are grouped into a new menu, Progress

As with all applications we have done our best to not force users to use the default workflow, rather we tried to give maximum configuration flexibility.

The first configuration that has to be made are Activities, these are the minimum detail of the activities that will performed during  the different stages of the construction, an example is shown in the following screenshot:

The Activities can be used in more than a Workstep (or activities collection), the latter must be configured in the following menu:

During the configuration of Worksteps, beside listing how these activities are made, the relative weight of each activity must be given of these for a total of 100%.

In turn Workstep will be collected in the workflow, these represent the complete cycle in which the material are involved, the following example is an erection and insulation workflow, composed by 2 worksteps.

The materials (in this case the spools) will be associated with the workflow and their progress will be monitored until the end of the construction, the following form shows the assignment of the spools to the Workflow:

After all the setting are completed, the progress of individual activities will be monitored in the period established by each client, the period is usually weekly but there is no limitation in the application.

A complete reporting via a convenient report generator completes the application.

Stay tuned for updates and for the release timeline, if you have anything to say or any question to ask please leave a comment or drop us an email.
