    Why Rudy?

    Rudy understands YOUR Engineer’s Challenges and addresses them with Digital Transformation of manual processes

    transform excel driven engineering Transform Excel Driven Engineering

    Rudy, being a single system of record with a robust knowledge management engine, eliminates the need for Excel. Additonally, it enables advanced contextual search to find and re-use prior information for current projects

    getting rid of multiple data entry Get Rid of Multiple Data Entry

    Rudy can consume, read and understand massive amounts of data in minutes from uploaded data sheets, material requisitions (MR) or supplier offers. Rudy automatically populates technical bid evaluation (TBE) templates and eliminates the need for multiple, manual data entry

    eliminating manual collaboration Eliminate Manual Collaboration

    Rudy has an embedded collaboration suite that helps an engineer collaborate in real time with suppliers and other discipline engineers. Engineers will not have to use emails and other tools for collaboration with the added advantage that all information is in one place to be searched and re-used

    knowledge management module Solve the Legacy Knowledge Problem

    Rudy’s built-in knowledge management module, ensures ready and easy availability of relevant technical knowledge and eliminates the dependency on legacy knowledge.

    control project overuns Control Project Overruns

    Rudy’s comprehensive digital platform ensures that upfront technical activities remain in firm control of the engineer and can be done quicky and effectively. Any savings in upfront engineering time can help balance any anticipated project overruns in the later part of the project

    SOC2 and ISO 270001 company Protect Proprietary Information

    Rudy is built as a single system of record by Mintmesh, a SOC2 and ISO 270001 company, on state of the art, security architecture. Rudy ensures that all technical bid evaluation activities are done from within the system with controlled and encrypted access

    Where Rudy helps you

    Rudy provides augmented decision-making capabilities for a typical technical evaluation process

    Data Sheets
    Data Sheets
    • For Mechanical and Electrical disciplines, you can upload your datasheets and other requirements into Rudy to create the TBE
    • For Piping and Instrumentation displines data sheets created by other tools like Hexagon, Aveva or ApsenTech can be brought in using standard integration methods
    Material Requisitions Package
    Material Requisitions Package
    • Rudy can be used to compile & send the MR Package(vendor documentation protocol, spare requirements) to be sent to suppliers along with a digital TBE that suppliers can directly update
    Technical Bid Tabulations
    Technical Bid Tabulations
    • Rudy consumes and compiles the technical bids from suppliers quickly, across multi-tag MRs
    • With our proprietary IP algorithm based on ELP capabilities Rudy allows the Engineers to quickly judge the offers and raise TQs within minutes of uploading the offer
    • Suppliers can respond to these TQs without any onboarding or system access
    • Rudy creates the final TBE tabulation with a click of a button
    Kick-off meeting
    Kick-off meeting
    • Rudy's digital assets can be used during a kick off meeting with suppliers that have been awarded the contract
    Vendor Document Review
    Vendor Doc Review
    • Rudy's digital assets and technical evaluation workbench can be used during a vendor document review with the supplier
    Lessons Learned
    Lessons Learned
    • Very soon, Rudy will launch the lessons learned module which will allow changes identified by item to be captured and entered into Rudy for use in the next project. This will ensure that gaps between "As-required, As-designed, As-built and As-implemented" are minimized or eliminated
