Technical Talk on AVENA for EPC Marine and Fabricator

Date : 17th November 2015
Time : 8:30hours to 17:00hours
Venue : Imperial Palace Hotel
Fees : FOC (Student) – Please bring valid student ID
          FOC (for IEM members only including graduate/professional Nov,2015 members)
          FOC (for non-IEM members)

BEM Approved CPD HOURS: 5.5  (Ref No: IEM15/MIRI/367/T)


The general tendency for engineering consultants to stay in the competition is to address more complex segments of the market in order to escape a price competition. This implies to be ready to withstand more complex production and sometimes more complex markets. The Marine and Fabrication business are at the extreme end of such scenario, regardless how far in complexity the design need to go, the engineering consultant needs to cope with the short time frame and competitive costing. Implementing a tailored integrated solution will majorly help engineering consultants tackle a broader footprint of projects covering from the shipbuilding to engineering construction industries and enabling to provide a much better service to their clients with more automatic accurate fabrication information to increase productivity. Join us for this invitation only event in collaboration with IEM for the professional engineers in Miri.This program will cover important aspects for delivering efficiency, cost savings and innovation for the marine and fabricator industry to gain sustainable competitive advantage especially in today’s increasingly challenging business climate. This interactive program will be focusing on:
(a) Applying lean methodology through an integrated set of solutions to help businesses accelerate and control engineering processes, enabling multiple-discipline engineers to share and collaborate on design changes effectively reducing project risk, cost and timescales.
(b) Achieving efficient and effective engineering & design work process to generate project data, manage its evolution and use throughout the shipbuilding process, and enable the most effective use of production facilities.
(c) Understanding how the best-in-class Building information Modeling (BIM) solution is offering Engineering Consultants and Fabricators an ideal platform to work together building a multi material construction model.
(d) Providing the engineering consultant industry a highly versatile estimating, material management and production control solution designed to automate and integrate key operations for steel fabrication companies – to include faster bid preparation, more accurate and consistent estimating, reduced material and labour costs and improved end product quality.

The talk is strictly limited to only 50 participants registered on a first come, first served basis. Interested members can register themselves by filling the form and email to us. When all seats have been filled, the registration will be closed. Kindly refer to the attached flyer:
