• Developments in Plant Engineering

    Process engineering plants are among the largest and most complex structures of humanity. Only a few companies worldwide are able to design and construct efficient and state-of-the-art plants. In recent years, there has been significant growth in the plant engineering industry.  In addition to rising costs and the inevitable impact on the profit margin of construction companies, labour and infrastructure bottlenecks, deadlines with completion limitations, resource constraints, and constant business management difficulties, problems occur that are often habitual for those who work in the sector, but not always easy to solve. But what does this analysis tell us? We are facing an urgent demand for innovations in the plant engineering industry that seek to optimize the productivity of the sector. Among the major innovations in the construction industry and closely related to increased productivity in the industry is the adoption of mobile devices and automation control solutions for works.

    Innovation in Construction Planning and Process

    Thanks to the implementation of a digital experience through mobile devices, the organization of contractors, builders and developers have observed a considerable improvement in process management, planning and control of execution and quality of projects; even after the end of the project. Several software have been developed exclusively for civil construction and have proven to be particularly effective in the management of processes; is ideal for those who want to have quality information for greater assertiveness in decision making to provide greater agility in processes, reduction of costs and even improvements in the environmental sustainability of the project. Some other benefits include optimization in the process of quality management. Management of the teams in the field (also assisting in the area of work safety) is easier. Updating the progress of the work, reducing losses, cost accuracy labour, monitoring and inspection of keys of the enterprise' control of technical assistance services, among other data that can be organized and is easily accessible for planning, management and other staff involved.

    In order to have a better idea, a works management platform is able to control the entry of materials at the construction site, the use of each of them in each stage of the work, the performance of the hired labour, among other relevant aspects, all in one screen. In addition, each manager involved can access the information in real time and from anywhere. In addition, the materials used in the plant engineering sites have also been replaced by increasingly efficient solutions. Modernization of equipment such as the use of flexible cranes and faster elevators are examples of how simple changes impact the final result. Among companies that seek to optimize productivity in the industry, there is a rising concern to improve the synchronicity between enterprise and material flow, aiming at the elimination of activities that do not add value, a better range of suppliers and even practices for better filtering of purchases. 

    In general, measures that tend to accompany a leaner management model (agile) are implemented to ensure a faster process. This type of technology is what makes a plant engineering enter the 21st century since it is an essential point for any type of business: the use of information in its favour. Even today, it is common for information to be recorded in spreadsheets manually, which complicates the monitoring process at the construction site.

  • Function and objectives of Plant Engineering

    Plant Engineering is a division of power engineering, and is defined as the engineering and technology required for the production of central station electric power. The field is focused on the generation of power for industries and communities, not for household power production. Control the activities that are carried out in the production department. Master any changes that occur in the production department.


    Objectives of plant engineering:

    • Organize functions related to plant engineering
    • Processes related to product manufacturing productivity
    • Variables related to the manufacturing process
    • Techniques that are implemented when making a product
    • Production reports
    • Management of raw materials and result
    • Design and redesign of products
    • Collaboration of technologies and management of them
    • Techniques that reduce costs
    • Planning of productive processes

    Plant Engineering Specifications: 

    Plant Engineering realizes the availability of the equipment, production, Human resource and everything that concerns the facilities to its domain. Those who work within the design of installation in the plants have the main objective to organize all the factors mentioned above. Few Precautionary Measures use the entire structure trained to carry out their work. Human Resource is optimal. Improve the communication process between human resources and clients. Minimize the manufacturing lapses and in the same way the distribution to the client. Get rid of products that do not represent an important function. Control what enters and leaves the company, in reference to the materials manufactured. Carry out measures that promote safety. Perform the processes that maintain the structure and work team.

    How to Implement Plant Engineering in a Company

    According to a plant engineer, robotic automation is the best solution to reduce costs, increase production, and address labor shortages. Before calling a system integrator to get a price quote, there are few steps to follow to ensure success when implementing a robotic system. Plant Engineering produces products or provides a service that improves the quality of the user. It has human resources, raw material, technological equipment, and budget. The complete training in the techniques that allow it is the main objective of the postgraduate program Organization and Engineering of the Production and Management of Industrial Plants, which deals in depth with the aspects that give economic value to the company through engineering and management of the productive processes. In addition, it emphasizes the most advanced and current trends in aspects such as process engineering, lean manufacturing, total productive maintenance, supply chain management, as well as those related to the enhancement of skills directives, as is the case of coaching.

    The Master in Organization and Engineering of Production and Management of Industrial Plants works all these aspects that must give economic value to the company, and deals with aspects related to engineering and management of manufacturing processes, production planning and of the needs of materials and resources, of the design of industrial plants and of the implementation of productive systems. All this related to management aspects: logistics, quality, maintenance, human resources, etc., with a special dedication of the most advanced tendencies, so that the participants intervene actively, working as a team and studying real cases that may have had place in their own companies. A very complete teaching methodology focused on practical aspects. Maintenance of machinery, painting and everything related to the structure of the company
