Challenges in Plant Construction

Plant constructors are currently facing numerous challenges that need to be managed. Above all, the increasing complexity of projects is presenting plant constructors with ever new tasks. The demands on modern production plants are high and often require a large number of different components and systems. In addition, the efficiency of processes and the degree of digitalization are also important in plant construction.


The various areas of plant construction are multi-layered and complex. Whether steel construction, tank construction or piping - each area has its own individual requirements and processes.

Time resources

The realization of process plants is time-consuming. The more complex the requirements, the more time resources are needed.


Piping systems must be documented with the help of suitable systems. The larger the plants, the more complex the systems.

Data transfer

Data transfer for further processing steps is only possible manually and is very time-consuming.

Data inconsistencies

From planning to production documents, data inconsistencies often occur.
