Pipe Design Management System

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff. Posted in Designer

Pipe Design Management System was developed by AVEVA formerly CAD Center in UK.  PDMS as it is known in the 3D CAD industry, is a customizable, multi-user and multi-discipline, engineer controlled design software package for engineering, design and construction projects in, but not limited to, offshore and onshore oil & gas industry, chemical & process plants, mining, pharmaceutical & food industry, power generation and paper industries.

From the PDMS Website:

  • With highly interactive graphical design tools, AVEVA PDMS's Piping functions allow a user to rapidly build a fully detailed model of all piping systems, based on component catalogues and engineering specifications. From this model, Piping General Arrangement drawings, isometric drawings and bills of quantity are produced.
  • A full range of automatically generated piping isometrics is available, from the complete system, through to fabrication, erection and individual spool isometrics.
  • AVEVA PDMS manages and integrates all stages of the piping workflow from initial conceptual routing at the beginning of a project, through basic and detailed design and on to individual pipe spooling at the fabricator.
