The client is a leading North American land surveying, geospatial, and consulting services company catering to organizations operating in environmental, transportation/infrastructure, government, and industrial/commercial sectors.
The client had a boundary location & topographic survey project that involved over 15,000 cogo points, which had to be delivered within four days. The sheer volume of work coupled with extremely tight deadlines raised the bar very high.
Primaverse started this project with two drafters and a quality reviewer, with deep experience in land surveying projects. The first step was to understand the client’s specifications through a thorough study of sample files, layer standards, block libraries, terminology, CAD standards, pen tables, etc.
To speed up the execution, the project was divided into two:
Topography The two tasks / sub projects were executed in parallel and merged at the end to deliver on time. Achieving consistent and high quality of work through a split approach called for a non-traditional method of planning. For this, layer states were uniformly set in both sub-projects to avoid duplication or object omission. A quality checklist provided guidance while merging the two to get the final, error-free output. This process helped avoid rework and increase efficiency.
By delivering the project within the committed deadlines the client was able to deliver the project to their end-client within the committed timelines.
The client is a consulting firm that provides professional civil engineering design services to water / waste water, land development, industrial, residential, and government sectors. The client had worked with an outsourcing partner previously, but the arrangement had not worked due to quality issues.
The project awarded to Primaverse involved 1100 acres of residential land development which had to be to be delivered within strict deadlines and with stringent quality standards.
Primaverse initiated the project by setting up a team of 5 Civil Engineers working on Civil 3D who ensured accurate understanding of the client’s standards and specifications. This knowledge transfer was optimally achieved with one engineer working onsite and four offshore.
A sample task was then executed to refine our understanding of client requirements. The team, comprising drafters, designers, quality reviewers, was scaled up gradually to efficiently manage project deadlines.
The total project involved preparation of over 600 drawings for road, grading, erosion, detail, profiles, etc. over a period of one year.
Impact By delivering the work within the committed timelines, Primaverse saved the client substantial delays in subsequent project delivery.
The client was a leading North American signage & graphics company, that works with multiple industry segments.
They were facing a challenge of completing over 1000 hours of signage detailing within a short timeline.
Keeping in mind the need for rapid execution with strict deadlines, Primaverse set up a team of designers comprising of Lead Designer, Graphics artists & checkers, with Coreldraw expertise. The team was guided by a process set up specifically keeping the project needs in mind.
The Primaverse team worked on the client's VPN to complete over 600 projects for rebranding and signage changes over the project duration.
The client was able to deliver all the required work to their end-client ahead of schedule.
The client is a firm of consulting engineers and green building consultants, working on the latest technologies in their domain. They were bidding for a smart city project and had to meet tight deadlines for tender submission.
The actual work involved Revit models for Architecture and MEP, to be made from the client’s designs. Detailing was expected at LOD 400 levels.
There were 16 services (such as HVAC, drainage, domestic water piping, firefighting, data communications, power & lighting, LPG piping and installation, etc.) which had to be delivered, with final output required in multiple formats.
To add to the complexity, not all product families were provided by the client, nor were these available in the public domain; these families had to created. All these factors made the entire project a steep challenge.
Project requirements and specifications for various services were obtained from the client. A senior engineer at Primaverse carefully studied these documents and drawings, after which a sample project was created to confirm our understanding with the client. Only after the client confirmed our understanding, did actual work execution begin.
A team comprising mechanical & electrical engineers as well as architects was assembled keeping in mind the overall project expectations and timelines.
The quality check process followed is the standard quality process at Primaverse - each team member does a self-check of individual output, based on a quality checklist, followed by self-corrections. This self-checked work is then cross-checked by a different team member, using the defined quality guidelines. The process ends with a final quality check by the team leader, after which the project is released to the client.
Based on client feedback, amendments if any, are made. The project is closed once it passes the clients final acceptance requirements.
Impact Meeting client deadlines with required quality standards enabled client to successfully bid for the project.
Our client was an equipment designer and manufacturer, catering to the food processing industry. The project involved design of Twin-Cylinder Spiral Freezer for a large ice cream manufacturer.
Our client faced challenges on multiple fronts. They had only recently migrated to Inventor from SolidWorks, and did not have the necessary skill levels, and in the required numbers, to execute the project. The timelines for the project were constrained too, since the equipment had to be designed, manufactured and commissioned well before the ice cream season began.
We had not executed projects involving similar machinery in the past, but due to domain capabilities & technology skills of our team, we were confident of execution.
Given the project timelines and overall requirements, we assembled a team that comprised one team leader, four design engineers and two draftsmen. The team leader worked with the client to understand their design standards.
Work on different sub-assemblies was assigned to individual designers, while the team leader's role was to work with individual designers to ensure that there were no ambiguities in their understanding. As individual sub-assemblies were prepared, the team leader worked to verify their design quality as well as aspects of interference and mating.
Once the entire design was finalized and accepted by the client, the draftsmen began working on manufacturing drawings. As the drawings were prepared, there were quality checks after which they were released to the client as per their manufacturing sequence. This allowed for actual manufacturing to start on assemblies without delays.
Impact Our client was able to achieve the timelines set by the end-customer of delivery and installation of the freezer. The end-customer was hence able to meet peak demand levels, thereby ensuring that revenues were not lost.
