Engineering and procurement in capital projects typically entails process-, mechanical-, and automation planning as well as procurements. The images above represent the different types of equipments that are selected as part of plant design and then purchased.

Materials represent a major expense in capital projects, contributing to nearly 50% of the construction’s value (WRAP, 2007).

MHS offers a modern tool for publishing, handling and managing orders, home calls and call-off’s within the project’s network. MHS acts as a materials data-base for the entire project network. Ensure transparent and smooth interaction between engineering, purchaser and the material supplier. There are three primary ways to import call-off information to MHS.
