Tekla PowerFab Features

Tekla Epm Estimating

Preparing bids is simpler and less time-consuming because tedious recapitulation activities are done automatically, it allows you to create accurate estimates mitigating the risk of over or under bidding.

Detailed And Organized Project Management

Visualizing and sharing the progress information in the 3D model helps transition from reactive to proactive project management.

Tekla Epm Project Management

Give your project managers complete visibility and traceability of important project information. You can also collect and store project notes from conversations, e-mails, and job site meetings.

Automatically import bill of materials information, revision details, and drawings from any electronic CAD source. CNC files (CAM) + (DSTV) can be automatically downloaded from any CIS/2 compliant 3D detailing systems.

RFIs, change orders, and transmittals can be created, logged, and tracked using the easy-to-use document control system. This helps to reduce the time required to maintain this level of information detail.

Tekla Epm Order Entry & Purchasing

Manage all the tasked related to over-the-counter sales. You can create quick quotes, orders, delivery tickets, and invoices, with the order tied to inventory control.

The requisition can be generated automatically from information transferred from other parts of Tekla EPM – no need to re-enter the data. You can also import material requisitions from detailing programs (Tekla Structures, AutoCAD, SteelCad, SDS/2, and more)

Quickly Generate And Manage Schedules

Manage multiple baselines of the same schedule to conduct ‘what-if’ scenarios. Rivaling purpose-built project management packages, these scheduling features will make your job easier.

Tekla Epm Production Control

You can also use the R780 as a powerful base station for your site. It receives corrections for your rover, making it the most easy-to-use base station on the market.

Route CNC Files Automatically

CNC files (when processed during import) will be automatically routed to their appropriate machine when prompted. Avoiding manual data entry by your line operators ensures that each piece is fabricated as instructed in the 3D model.

Tekla Epm Combining

Combining is our term for the nesting of material. It combines the lengths of similar material together such as wide flange beams, angles, flat bar, round bar, channels, tube steel, and plates.

Tekla Epm Inventory Control

Get detailed tracking of your entire inventory, across all jobs and with real-time updates as material is received and consumed in your workflow.
