Pipe Design Management System

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Design Engineering

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.
