Automatic precast production planning algorithm

Engineering | Production | Logistics | Assembly

The two precast production plants are one of the busiest entities in major industrial group’s engineering-production-delivery-assembly value chain. The production is carried out in 3 shifts 7 days a week for most of the year. At any given moment there are around 5,000 elements in the system available for production.

Tekla Open API Precast Attributes Plug-in

Engineering | Production | Logistics | Assembly

TEKLA Structures is great software for precast element modelling and it can contain a lot of useful information about each element in element attributes. Most common ones are TEKLA standard attributes for each element type. But elements can also have some user defined custom attributes. Currently TEKLA provides more than 10 pages in 2 windows forms of user defined attributes for precast concrete panel. Not all of those attributes are necessary for every-day modelling and it is time consuming for engineers to search for the correct place where information must be entered.
