Intergraph signs global alliance agreement with Siemens Power Generation


Intergraph Corporation has signed a five-year, multimillion-dollar Global Alliance Agreement with the Power Generation group of Siemens AG to standardize worldwide on Intergraph’s SmartPlant Enterprise suite of software and engineering integration technology.

The agreement includes services and the total SmartPlant software portfolio of Intergraph Process, Power & Marine. Applications range from SmartPlant Foundation for information and workflow management to the engineering and design tools such as SmartPlant 3D, SmartPlant P&ID, SmartPlant Instrumentation, SmartPlant Electrical and MARIAN for material and supply management.

“Because of the high degree of interdisciplinary integration of the new SmartPlant software, we expect a further increase of productivity and quality within engineering as well as increased collaboration from the implementation of our global work share concept. The possibility of integrating third-party software via Intergraph’s integration adapters and the use of open interfaces to support the communication with external partners provides increased opportunities for an even more efficient support of our engineering processes,” explains Frank Schnabel, Head of Plant Engineering, Siemens Power Generation, Energy Solutions division.

Gerhard Sallinger, president of the Intergraph Process, Power & Marine division, said: “Once again, Intergraph competed for a large contract, and once again, Intergraph has been selected. Siemens’ decision demonstrates our global leadership in the Power Industry with more than 100 companies using our software to design and operate power plants of all types and size.”

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
