Trimble has introduced its Tekla® PowerFab, a next-generation software suite for steel fabrication management. Created specifically for steel fabricators, Tekla PowerFab is a step-change in collaboration across project teams throughout the structural steel workflow for unparalleled control and visibility. The new solution expands upon Trimble’s Constructible Process, an innovative approach for the digital transformation of architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) workflows.
Tekla PowerFab is a complete and connected steel fabrication software solution that provides relevant and real-time information to all project parties. At the core of Tekla PowerFab is Tekla EPM (formerly FabSuite management information system), which boasts proven success among Trimble customers in North America. By combining Tekla EPM with Tekla Structures and the Trimble Connect™ collaboration platform, Tekla PowerFab automates the fabrication management process. The solution gives project teams visibility into the status of components at every stage of fabrication—from model-based estimating to site delivery—so they can work together seamlessly for more efficient workflows and cost savings.
Trimble’s Tekla portfolio now includes complete structural steel workflows for estimating, planning, managing, designing, modeling and automating the fabrication processes for maximum constructability.
