Successful project collaboration with EPLASS:

In the same way as almost every German PPP project, this project too has chosen EPLASS Professional to manage their construction design review processes. Various workflows have been defined to enable project participants to review drawings and other documents without the delay of a manual distribution.

Furthermore all review durations and their adherence to the expected due dates are being monitored through the integrated time-scheduling management function of the EPLASS Professional module. Moreover, the automated filing of drawings and documents on basis of ID numbers provides a clear overview and an easy to follow structure of all documents.


“To me, EPLASS is a self-explanatory system. I only needed a brief instruction in order to actively commence working on the platform. The clear structures and the automated processes in EPLASS considerably facilitate my work as a design manager."
