SOMOX

SOMOX software automates the planning, management, and control of construction project scheduling, providing clients an effective 4D-6D construction planning tool for industrial and civil facilities of any size and complexity.

Overview

When implementing complex construction projects, you need to present all construction processes in a clear form to project stakeholders. Even skilled experts normally need a significant amount of time to determine activities schedules and allocate activities correctly between general contractors and subcontractors. With SOMOX, NEOLANT provides a speedy approach that unites 3D models, all engineering data, and information on the installation and construction progress.

    Our Approach Provides Benefits

  • Coordinating and optimizing the work of all involved at the building site.
  • Working in a environment that shares information through a uniform project database with integrated 3D models.
  • Monitoring online and controlling the construction process.
  • Generating daily and weekly assignments on the basis of the activities schedule and 3D models.

    4D-6D Modeling of Construction Projects

  • General Contractor and Subcontractors access effective planning of work and timely change management.
  • Head Designer optimizes design concepts on the construction process.
  • Developers and Customers have on-line access to project data, such as work status and allocation distribution.
  • Customers – Customers receive the current status of the construction process on a timely basis.

Functional Capabilities

SOMOX consists of a set of complementary modules that can be expanded as required. Based on the customer’s needs, additional modules can be added while basic ones eliminated, and so the customer determines the final cost of the product.

To translate and view 2D/3D CAD/PLM data and 3D models, SOMOX is seamlessly integrated into NEOLANT’s exclusive InterBridge translation software.

  • Imports models from most popular CAD formats.
  • Unifies all project parts developed in various CAD systems into a single model, including graphics and semantic structures.
  • Convenient viewing of the most large-scale models* on different devices, with easy sharing.
  • Detects collisions:
    • Controls design quality.
    • Determines designer supervision issues.
    • Creates as-built 3D models and as-built documentation.
    • Searches and eliminates project collisions.

SOMOX Integration With PLM Systems

SOMOX has the flexibility to integrate with your Plant Lifecycle Management system, as well as our own NEOSYNTEZ plant lifecycle management system, to manage engineering data at all stages of a facility’s lifecycle.

Advantages to SOMOX

The SOMOX technology has already proved itself successful at constructing six nuclear power plants in Russia and abroad.

International experts estimate that approved techniques for visualizing planning and automated releases of work tickets in large-scale construction projects decreases project costs by 10%. It reduces expenses from equipment downtime, and increases labor productivity by 25%. (Study conducted by the Construction Owners Association of Alberta, an expert group on construction efficiency at www.coaa.ab.ca).

The software was developed using the systems pioneered by the engineering company JSC NIAEP - JSC Atomstroyexport, a strategic partner of NEOLANT GC.
