Constructability Engine – Detecting Issues with Just One Click

When designing a topside, there are several rules regarding constructability that must be checked to improve construction friendly design. The constructability engine is a plug-in module within the 3D CAD software that allows near real-time collaboration from all major area disciplines. 

The constructability engine will: 

  • improve yard productivity 
  • improve execution schedule 
  • Reduce manhours in construction, quality checking, data-validation and correcting mistakes 
  • Reduce late changes 
  • Increase design quality 

See video below with one of of our engineers, Jørn Karlsvik who has been part of developing the app Constructability Engine with our engineers at Stord. Jørn tells us about the app and how it works:

“This app is a gamechanger, which proves we can push the boundaries and deliver better quality for any potential construction yard”, says Jørn.

The Constructability Engine is a key application in Aker Solutions overall digitalization project N-Digi, designed to radically improve field developments. The software is developed in cooperation with Akers’ software company Aize.
