Atlantique Industrie Group is organized around 3 poles: Engineering, Services and Distribution and proposes solutions and services in the field of water (potabilization, waste water) and waste (valorization, transformation, energy).
Théo D. in charge of the design office software, explains :
Atlantique Industrie Group builds complete water or waste treatment plants, or responds to specific process problems (Hygienisation / Relevage / Dehydration). We carry out the studies, the realizations, the start-ups and the after-sales service of our installations. We also offer equipment and skid rental solutions in plug&play. We also work for quarries, irrigation and sea water.
To produce P&IDs, equipment lists and functional analyses for automation, we used general drawing software and ExcelTM. The main problem with this solution was the lack of linkage between the different software packages, which required us to check the correspondence of the information "by hand" with the risk of errors in certain orders.
Currently, SchemPID is used regularly by 5 people. Other members of the team will be trained on certain aspects of the software or on its entirety in the coming months. The database has been centralised on a server for common use.
SchemPID allows us to obtain a relevant result as well as to export our lists of equipment, instruments, pipes and valves. This is then passed on to our fitters and automation engineers and of course to our customers. It also allows us to cross-check our information in a quality approach.
The big advantage of SchemPID is that it is designed to draw P&IDs by integrating intelligence. It is a powerful tool that updates information automatically, in both directions, and allows us to gather in one place most of the information we need for design, site and after-sales service.
As far as FTZ's service is concerned, the two training sessions we had were clear and precise, and the trainer answered our questions on the day. I also appreciate the reactivity of your support, whether it be for problem solving or technical questions. This is a change from the large IT maintenance platforms I often deal with.
It is also reassuring to know that the software is still evolving and that you regularly integrate additional functions.
