A new Windows 8.1 app enables mobile users to comment and approve Aveva Everything3D (Aveva E3D) designs from a tablet device. Developed in collaboration with Microsoft, the software allows project engineers to inspect, comment upon, and approve designs at any time, from anywhere around the world. It streamlines the design review and approval process to support lean business practices, while maximizing project efficiency by providing authorized users with secure, direct access to the live Aveva E3D design model, according to Aveva.

“Over the years we have seen how many companies struggle to effectively collaborate across their supply chain,” said Bruce Douglas, senior vice president of product strategy and marketing, Aveva. “Aveva E3D Insight overcomes this challenge by providing an innovative and intuitive mobile platform on touch enabled tablets and laptops connecting directly to the design model and its community of designers. Initial feedback from customer evaluations, including WorleyParsons and Technip, as well as user meetings has demonstrated strong alignment with industry requirements.”
