Plant Planning Process, Rubber Journal Article by Zeppelin Systems

The time to market can be reduced with the help of intelligent planning management. The more detailed the preliminary planning prior to construction approval, the more time can be saved. Detailed preliminary planning While a traditional machine construction company focuses on the machine, a plant engineering company’s planning will keep the total plant in mind. To do so, Zeppelin Systems makes use of various modern planning tools. One of them is the Zeppelin Value Engineering concept which enables extensive discussions and the optimisation of the plant concept in digital form at a very early stage. This leads to better concept solutions such as optimised piping, improved room layout or perfect positioning of all components, and shorter distances. As it starts at the development phase, all relevant data that sets the basis for decision making is available at a very early stage. “This data includes process flow diagrams of the complete plant, the installation planning and the energy requirements, but also costs, volumes and deadlines,” Veit explains. Preliminary planning without time constraints enables concepts to be refined and establishes the solid basis for extensive discussions and the optimisation of the plant concept during the model review. In Zeppelin’s experience, this often leads to better concept solutions that are more efficient in operation and less expensive to realise. The model review usually takes place during contract processing and not before – when only little space for concept optimisation remains. The better and more thorough the planning at the beginning of the project, the greater the chances of shortening the execution phase. At least as important is that costs for possible modifications later on will also be reduced. That is why Zeppelin Systems no longer uses the sequential planning process. Instead, many planning steps are now performed in parallel, leading to considerable time savings.
