AVEVA PDMS 3D design software delivers maximum productivity and capability on all types of plant project, from the smallest upgrade to newbuild projects of unlimited size and complexity. PDMS users range from small engineering contractors to many of the largest multinational process and power companies.
PDMS includes comprehensive functions for all aspects of 3D plant design. Select from the list to learn more.
A 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
AVEVA PDMS is highly configurable and includes both a powerful programmable macro language (PML) and a .NET API to customise the system and automate key tasks.
PDMS integrates with all other AVEVA Plant applications and interface products to form the most complete and configurable 3D plant design solution for the power and process industries.
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, around the world.
Data can be transferred to other AVEVA Plant applications.
Controlled changes to components and specifications are quick and easy to make and apply across the design
