eTaskMaker Module Update for August

InterPlan Systems has released the following new eTaskMaker estimating module:

  • Cooling Tower Louvers Replacement(new – Heat Exchangers folder) Covers the removal of old/damaged louvers on a cooling tower and replacing them with new, fiberglass reinforced plastic ones. The module also includes the necessary tasks for asbestos abatement, if necessary. Note that the removal/installation process assumes the use of a special manlift. If scaffolding is to be used, the scaffolding estimates should be created separately using the scaffolding estimating module; then make any necessary editing to the estimate to remove the references to the manlift.

eTaskMaker clients may now download the update from our downloads repository.

InterPlan Systems announces an update for the Conceptual Cost Estimator (CCE) that includes an enhancement to the estimating worksheet. CCE now allows users to enter comments in the estimating worksheet to keep track of details pertinent to an estimate. The new, enhanced CCE is available now.

eTaskMaker Vs. Templates

InterPlan Systems has published a new white paper that looks at the relative strengths of eTaskMaker vs. a template manager in helping an organization achieve standardization of best practices in planning and estimating for STOs (turnarounds, I&Ts (inspection & testing), shutdowns, emergency outages, debottlenecking projects, revamps, catalyst regeneration, etc.). The new white paper can be found here:
