PDMS includes comprehensive functions for all aspects of 3D plant design.


dec13_PPMSA fully interactive, intuitive 3D plant design environment, with a Microsoft Office-style user interface based on .NET technology

Hundreds of designers can work concurrently on a project, in a fully controlled manner, with visibility of the entire design at all times.

Designers progressively create a highly intelligent 3D design by selecting and positioning parametric components from an extensive catalogue.

Clash checking and configurable integrity checking rules help a designer create ‘right first time’ design and enable effective overall design quality assurance.

A configurable Status Management function provides visual highlighting and clear reporting of design maturity status of PDMS objects.

Highly configurable, automatic generation of a wide range of reports and drawings direct from the PDMS database

Catalogues & Specifications

An extensive set of catalogues covers industry, national, and international standards, and includes piping, structural steel, ducting, hangers, supports and cable trays.

Each catalogue provides parametric definition of all components in the required size ranges, ratings and types. For piping components, for example, data is stored related to connection types, physical and nominal size, material codes and bolt requirements.

Engineering specifications control the way in which catalogue components may be used in the design.

Standard catalogues can be defined once and shared across multiple projects

Controlled changes to components and specifications are quick and easy to make and apply across the design.
