We recently concluded a series of CAU Express events in India and the Middle East, and the overwhelming response to these CADWorx sessions impressed me and clearly shows that more and more users are adopting CADWorx as their plant design solution of choice.
CADWorx 2016 is certainly the best AutoCAD-based plant design system available on the market today. CADWorx includes in-built capabilities to customize specs and catalogues, additional integration options for downstream users, enterprise plant modeling and data management capabilities. These factors make CADWorx a unique and versatile system which can be easily adopted to projects of any size, irrespective of industry.
The broad use of CADWorx is evident from the number of users attending these events from non O&G industries such as water treatment, food and beverages, pharmaceutical, fine chemical and semi-conductor. In addition, readily available 3rd party applications, can add additional functionality and data exchange opportunities for the reuse of data, which makes CADWorx the world's most effective and easy to use plant Solutions.
CADWorx, a Simple but Truly an Integrated Solution
CADWorx is a unique application which allows every AutoCAD user to be an efficient designer in a short period of time with a very short learning curve. At the same time, it allows the models & data created to be used & integrated into enterprise solutions. This makes CADWorx highly scalable, with an upgrade path for organizations as they grow.
Integration with Electrical & Instrumentation Solutions
CADWorx P&ID a simple yet powerful database driven P&ID authoring tool that allows the creation of intelligent P&ID drawings. As users draw their P&IDs, a database of rich linked information can be simultaneously created, that can be shared with other downstream users such as electrical and instrumentation engineers. CADWorx supports interfaces with Intergraph SmartPlant Instrumentation, Intergraph SmartPlant Electrical and SCADA Systems Paneldes Raceways and Instrument Manager for producing electrical and instrumentation deliverables.
Integration with Analysis Solutions
CADWorx Plant Professional a offers direct integration to analysis solutions such as CAESAR II, PV Elite and GT STRUDL thereby saving hours of remodeling by respective engineer thereby allowing engineers to do real engineering and optimization of design rather than spending time in modeling.
Integration with Enterprise Solutions
CADWorx’s ability to import spec and catalogue data from Intergraph SmartPlant reference database, make it an ideal product for small and medium complex projects while using the uniform spec and catalogues across platforms. Similarly, the ability to publish CADWorx models to be imported into SmartPlant foundation and SmartPlant Construction makes it a perfect tool in an EPC organization executing mixed size of projects. These factors have encouraged more and more Owner operators in our region to adopt CADWorx as their day-to-day plant design tool for designing and executing in-house projects such as FEED studies and brownfield projects while managing the data in their Smart Plant Foundation system.
Integration with Fabrication Shops
Through PCF and CIS/2 export functionality CADWorx models can be shared with your fabrication contractors who can open these file formats in Intergraph Spoolgen and TEKLA Xteel respectively for producing their deliverables such as Spool drawings and steel fabrication drawings.
Thus CADWorx is the perfect recipe for success in executing your FEED & Brownfield Projects efficiently and accurately.
