MacLellan Clash Manager
Global clash management with AVEVA PDMS
A complimentary alternative to AVEVA Clash Manager
Introduction
 
MacLellan Technology Solutions has developed a Clash Management application that is a very powerful tool and is available for PDMS. It uses the built-in AVEVA E3D, AVEVA PDMS and AVEVA Outfitting clash detection capabilities and has many of the features of AVEVA Clash Manager. It is extremely fast, supports AVEVA Global and does not require a separate server and Relational Database Management System (RDBMS).
 
AVEVA PDMS
 
AVEVA PDMS produces a virtual 3D design model. This virtual model serves as a mock-up of the fully coordinated and integrated systems design. Through this virtual model, the aim is to anticipate and discover any potential problems, and thus rectify conflicts in the design phase, saving time, cost overruns and the wasting of materials and other resources.
 
Clash Detection and Management
 
Clash checks analyse the PDMS 3D model for overlapping geometries. They help designers to detect and resolve possible clashes before construction and production start and prevent unbudgeted changes from reaching the shop floor and construction site.
...effective clash detection enables designers to eliminate one of the most common causes of errors and delays in construction...
Clash checks can lead to substantial savings in the overall project costs and has been one of the best uses of this technology.
 
The MacLellan Clash Management application
 
The MacLellan Clash Manager application is much more than just another frontend to the standard AVEVA PDMS Clasher. The underlying mechanism makes innovative use of standard PDMS functionality and Dabacon database structures.
...a powerful, innovative application that enables both the detection and management of clashes throughout the plant development process and across global engineering locations...
General clash settings, such as tolerances and defaults, are set by the project administrator. Clash runs can be initiated by the designers at any time. Built in rules can determine clash owner, status etc. The interface makes it easy to change clash status, assign to another disciplines etc. all under full audit control. Approved clashes are never deleted and may be reinstated should any clashing item be moved. Revalidating clashes takes minutes rather than hours thanks to the innovative implementation using standard PDMS features . Combined with support for AVEVA Global this makes the MacLellan Clash Manager application a powerful tool for any Standard or Distributed Engineering project. See the Key Features and Business Benefits opposite for more detailed information.
