MATL - TRANSLATING YOUR REQUIREMENTS INTO OUTLINE DESIGN PACKAGES
Supporting procurement processes to ensure technical compliance
Validate the completed equipment through inspection and acceptance testing.
From the early conceptual stages of a project, it is key to have a vision of the final results. To get there, the design and build has to pass through complex stages where information is used in many places, or may not be used at all. A robust design package is essential to be able to purchase exactly what is required.
CLARITY OF DESIGN
The original design intent is often driven by needs of efficiency, new products and rectification, but defined in terms of numbers and descriptions.
With clear and precise information depicting the physical parts to be introduced or changed, often including an element of 3D to aid visualisation, the concept becomes much more visible to those who will need to use it, and the method to reach that point.
ELIMINATING DUPLICATION AND OMISSION
With a translation from a complex concept to several parallel supply streams, the scope of supply and services of installation and commissioning can be clearly defined, so avoiding costly multiple purchases and confusion, and particularly eliminating activities that can be missed and therefore having to procure competitively and at short notice.
An activity schedule detailing all of the supply items and services also feeds into a detailed project programme to enable a solid plan to achieve commissioning and handover.
VALIDATION OF DELIVERY
Having a consistent set of information to procure against, this forms the baseline to track any changes and to check against once manufacture or supply is ready for
HOW MATL CAN STREAMLINE YOUR DESIGN TO PROCUREMENT
Our design packages are supported by a certified quality management system to ensure consistency, reliability and adherence to standards.
Time and costs are kept within a plan and the impact of changes is carefully managed so you remain in control.
We pride ourselves on ensuring that all of the information we prepare is as accurate as possible, consistent with all of the other documentation in the package, but is also easily understood. We make substantial use of drawings and 3D models to support this.
A picture may paint a thousand words, but a good 3D model powerfully brings discussions to life and unites understanding.
From the earliest information, we work closely with you and your team to ensure that we understand your needs, but make sure that we share our development stages so
that you keep abreast of progress.
We take part in progress updates and reports and take on board concerns that you may highlight so that you know that the design is in good hands
An early and structured approach to the design based on how the project will be constructed enables full control throughout the design and build period.
By splitting the project into manageable packages, also with a view to compliance, and an understanding of the capabilities of each potential supplier, we match to the expertise of each area and the information is presented though a set of specifications, drawings, calculations and designs.
Many suppliers have key specialisations, so we tailor our information to allow the supplier to do what they do well, subject to your needs.
