AVEVA (LSE:AVV) today announced the release of AVEVA VPRM 9.6 SP3. AVEVA VPRM is a totally integrated solution that enables the effective management of resources throughout all phases of a project from inception to client handover. AVEVA VPRM comprises a resource management suite that helps manage risk, reduces costs and provides project control throughout the life of a project.
There are several product enhancements in Service Pack 3 for Release 9.6.
More effective monitoring & control over the lifecycle events for project tagged items, whether based on their inclusion as part of a tag list (especially major equipment), or based on their inclusion as part of material requirements (e.g. piping spools);
A flexible method to restrict access to purchase orders (pricing information) based on project "purchasing groups"; allowing multi-office purchasing departments to maintain key procurement data independently; and, for posterity, extended to facilitate review of project historical detail in the vendor database (VDB);
A configurable process that enables construction to improve fabrication scheduling of individual piping spools by providing the isometric spool breakdown , based on a 3D-modeller (particularly AVEVA PDMS), and thereby allowing construction to revise / re-plan spool fabrication as material availability dictates;
Support for Microsoft Office 2003 SP3, with its necessary security enhancements;
plus, further productivity enhancements throughout the materials management process.
Richard Longdon, CEO of AVEVA comments: "AVEVA VPRM has consistently helped our customers complete their projects within budget and ahead of schedule and provided the ability to significantly reduce material surpluses. This release of VPRM 9.6 SP3 demonstrates AVEVA's continual efforts to bring even more functionality and productivity gains to our new and existing customers"
AVEVA VPRM 9.6 SP3 is now commercially available.
