SmartPlant Construction to facilitate construction firms' workflow requirements.

Intergraph announced plans to expand its SmartPlant Enterprise software solution with the addition of SmartPlant Construction. The product, which is scheduled for release in 2009, reportedly will address the specific needs of construction firms while facilitating smooth work processes with engineering and operations.

SmartPlant Construction will enable process- and plant-construction groups to manage their workflows by assimilating the dynamic inputs from engineering, procurement, fabrication, site materials management, and craft labor plans. Building on the SmartPlant Enterprise portfolio, SmartPlant Construction will offer functionality for 3D visualization, construction-status handling, construction-planning visualization, lift planning, plant commissioning, scaffold planning, labor planning, and site-materials management.

SmartPlant Construction also will feature an open application-programming interface to accommodate 3D models and other data from non-Intergraph applications, the company states.
