Huntsville, USA, 29 January 2007 – Intergraph Corporation has announced the rebranding of MARIAN, Intergraph’s materials management solution, created specifically for the plant design industry, to SmartPlant Materials.
Now with enhanced integration within SmartPlant Enterprise, SmartPlant Materials is the most broadly implemented materials management solution for engineering, procurement and construction companies and owner/operators worldwide.
Key to SmartPlant Materials is the enabling of change-controlled bill of materials transfers from SmartPlant 3D, empowering faster and more accurate purchasing in a change managed environment. A bill of materials staging area has been added to the import process, allowing data manipulation and routine checking prior to importing the data.
This loading process is a critical step in the project workflow, and the customizable staging area will empower customers with a faster, higher quality data loading process. This capability, coupled with tight integration to SmartPlant Reference Data for catalogue and specification management, will further drive the ability of organizations to execute large and complex projects with unparalleled accuracy and speed.
“The integration enhancements for SmartPlant Materials improve our delivery of SmartPlant Enterprise as a true end-to-end plant life cycle management solution,” stated Patrick Holcomb, Executive Vice President of Intergraph Process, Power & Marine.
