Both projects and studies alike have shown that projects are plagued by cost overruns, delays and missed opportunities which cause not only an increase in the capital investment but also an increase in ongoing operating costs. Examining all the pain points in the automation project lifecycle, a newly field proven xStream Engineering approach has been created. Utilizing new technologies and advancement of new design concepts to revolutionize the engineering workflow, xSteam Engineering will dramatically reduce the CAPEX investment and impact of change.

This presentation will examine the new drivers in the xStream Engineering that focuses on standardization, simulation, modularization, simplification, reduced documentation, virtual commissioning and new field I/O technologies that can help cut 30% of the project CAPEX but more importantly, cut project schedules and eliminate the huge overhead cost of changes during the project and even change the traditional concepts of design freeze dates.
