with Dan Merrick, ECE Solutions
ECE will discuss CADWorx Plant and P&ID Professional database connections and the ease of extracting data with its newly released product – PIDMO.
PIDMO is a database interface that allows CADWorx PLANT and P&ID Professional users to leverage information stored in their process and instrument diagrams (P&ID) and 3D model drawings so that project managers, engineers, purchasing managers and other non-CAD users can import and export data from their project databases to and from Microsoft Excel. This sophisticated reporting tool enables users to easily access component information, filter for bills of materials (BOM), compile cost estimates, create project management worksheets and create Excel-based instrument and equipment datasheets with revision controls. The PIDMO application includes CAD extension tools that allow designers to automatically apply project data updates to fabrication isometric drawings and to process and instrument diagrams without the need to manually open up each drawing to make those changes.
