Sunday September 25, 2011

AceCad Software successfully deployed AceCad’s solutions at Tata BlueScope Building Solutions, a division of Tata BlueScope Steel is one of India’s top Engineered Building (PEB) players. Tata BlueScope Building Solutions has been using AceCad Software products for some time now and has successfully utilized its services in several projects.

According to Head of Steel Detailing, Mr. Ponnu Subramanian, "With the help of AceCad software, we have already started to automatically release fabrication drawings and erection drawings for Cage Ladder & Staircases. This has been achieved by using customized macros (as per Tata BlueScope Steel standards) for cage ladder and staircases, which not only delivers 100% delivery of accurate drawings at a few button clicks but also requires minimal editing".

AceCad Software has also recently trained 6 Tata BlueScope Building Solutions developers at our Mumbai office facilities for one week on StruMac, AceCad’s application programming interface (API) for StruCad. Tata BlueScope Building Solutions has developed and implemented some utilities and are further planning to develop more to integrate with various solutions they use within their work processes.

AceCad’s Development Head - PEB for India commented, "We have worked very closely with the Building Solutions business of Tata BlueScope Steel to understand their specific requirements and to develop customized macros in the StruCad system". Regional Manager for AceCad Software India, Mr Abhilash Joseph added, "Tata BlueScope Building Solutions is recognized as one of the leading PEB solutions providers in India and has a future vision to become the number one PEB player in the country. AceCad Software is delighted to be associated with them".
