Tekla EPM 2020: Improved visibility for external processes and progress

You can now designate internal and external stations and routes for tracking processes outside your own facility. This gives visibility and reporting options on the progress of a project not only in the fabrication shop, but also tracking for external processes like erection. The status of the external stations and routes can be updated via Tekla EPM Go and can be visualized in Trimble Connect. This way the erection crew can update the erection progress from the field using EPM Go, and share these statuses both internally and externally in real time.

Tekla EPM 2020: Better tracking of assemblies and parts

You now have greater flexibility to track parts and assemblies through stations and routes on the shop floor with Tekla EPM 2020. Once the tracked parts have been processed, you can choose which station the parts come together at to form an assembly. This allows for greater accuracy in production reporting as you have more flexibility in the way stations and routes can be configured to reflect your specific production settings.

Tekla EPM Plugin for Tekla Structures

The Tekla EPM Plugin (formerly FabSuite TME) allows for seamless communication between Tekla EPM and Tekla Structures. The Tekla EPM Plugin integrates with Tekla Structures allowing you to: Export the Tekla Structures model into a compressed EPM XML file. This single file contains the Drawings, Revisions, Bill of Materials, User-Defined Attributes, CNC Files, and Drawing Files. Import an EPM XML file into Tekla Structures to update the model with the current status information and colorize the model based on those statuses.

Estimating: IFC import improvements

You can now import an updated IFC for your estimate. The estimating IFC import will now update existing items based on GUID matching. Estimating IFC import now also presents a field mapping screen to give you the option of mapping IFC property sets, including UDAs, to fields in the estimate. In addition, the weld type mapping from the codes and descriptions used by detailing software to the EPM weld types can now be customized.
