Digital planning of snow-making systems

Only a system that operates faultlessly can guarantee efficient snow-making. Meticulous planning is therefore a prerequisite for resource-effective operation. Each system must be separately customized. The planning of snow-making systems requires the matching of numerous features such as pumping capacity and the amount of water or the design of pipelines. Local conditions, among other things, have to be considered, as do any future extensions.

The plans for snow-making systems already included in project offers must be adaptable and free of errors at all times. The team of technical draftsmen at TechnoAlpin rely on planning software in order to cope with the growing number of contracts. This minimizes errors by doing away with the interface between process engineering and system planning, and between process engineering and order management. 

TechnoAlpin opted for Smap3D Plant Design software. The program was able to be integrated into the existing software landscape (ERP, PDM and CAD) at TechnoAlpin. “The introduction of the Smap3D Plant Design solution has enabled us to implement more projects in less time. We’ve been able to considerably improve our work flow. The numerous integration options, automatic processes and the removal of interfaces meant we could immediately work without making errors and, more importantly, work faster,” says Andreas Weiss, Head of Engineering Draftsman at TechnoAlpin.

The program’s features include linking flow charts to 3D drawings of pumping stations. This speeds up the planning and modification of systems by at least 20 to 25 percent, so TechnoAlpin is now able to work more efficiently
