Many large-scale plants are currently being planned or constructed worldwide. Clients require contractors to minimize construction costs and work periods. We are striving to streamline construction work and thus reduce construction costs by focusing on simplifying installation work, shortening installation periods, standardizing all on-site work, and improving quality and safety. When pipes are installed at large-scale plant construction sites, pipes for adjustment called final spools are sometimes inserted between facilities that have been installed and piping that has been fastened. They are delivered to sites in a state that allows for on-site processing. After delivery, on-site matching and adjustment of the amount of processing based on the result of the on-site matching are repeated, and then the final spools are fitted into the spaces between facilities and piping. We have researched and developed a virtual fitting system to streamline fitting work. This paper describes the details of this system and the results of its application.
