PDMS 12.0
 The 3D plant design application for accurate and clash-free plant design
 The process and power industries seek to commission high-quality plant earlier,and to bring it on line with minimum cost and minimum risk. Achieving this in thedesign domain requires highly functional and productive applications that can beexecuted effectively across globally distributed project teams.
AVEVA PDMS allows teams of designers to work together, each with their own specialist 3D colour-shaded environment, but able to view all of the design going on aroundthem.As the designers work, PDMS builds a sophisticated plant database from which all of thelayout and detail drawings can be produced, together with accurate Material Take Off (MTO) information and all kinds of project reports such as Line List or Valve Schedules.
AVEVA PDMS can design every detail –even on the world’s largest projects
Business Benefits
Summary:• Reduced site rework.• More effective use of globally dispersed design teams.• Higher design efficiency.• Improved quality.• Clear identification of the costof changes.• Reduced schedule times.
The PDMS approach enables a widerange of sophisticated design checksto be carried out across all aspectsof the design to check and improvequality. Drawings and reports aregenerated directly from the model database to ensure consistencybetween design information and theproject deliverables.There are no limits to project size orcomplexity. PDMS is proven onprojects ranging from the smallest refit to the largest green fieldprojects, and is compatible with all the engineering issue, revision andchange-control processes requiredacross such projects.
Key FeaturesBusiness Benefits
Reduced site rework
• Higher quality design. The ability to perform multiple design checksacross the entire design eliminates errors, and enables 'right-first-time' engineering.• Accurate materials information eliminates over-ordering and delayson site due to a lack of required materials or information.
More effective use of globally dispersed design teams
• PDMS, combined with AVEVA Global, allows geographically separatedesign teams to work together as though they were in a singleoffice. The environment delivers high performance for the designer,centralised administration, control, and protection fromcommunication limitations or failures.• Effective use can be made of design capability, wherever it exists.Project teams can be quickly assembled and mobilised.
Higher design efficiency 
• Powerful design applications for each discipline, built upon a highlyvisual and interactive 3D environment, with a Microsoft Office-styleuser interface, means that designers can become productive veryquickly.• High levels of automation, intelligent behaviour and rule-basedfeatures deliver increased productivity across all disciplines.• The ability to share component information and to reuse designdata between projects reduces man-hours and schedule time.
Improved quality 
• 3D multi-discipline working environment improves communicationbetween teams and facilitates 'right-first-time' design.• Clash checking, integrity checking and rule-based checking toolsensure higher quality designs and less rework.• Database-driven drawing production achieves consistency betweendrawings, reports and design data.
Clear identification of the cost of changes
• Automatic change highlighting options, both in the designdatabase and on drawings, make it easier to identify andcommunicate change, and to identify the party responsible for anygiven change.• Ability to compare and highlight changes between specific dates,revisions and milestones.
Reduced schedule times
• Reduced site work, concurrent multi-location engineering, higherdesign efficiency and higher quality all combine to reduce scheduletime.• Greater ability to react quickly to major project changes, includingthe capability to change the project structure during project execution and to dynamically add in new locations or removeexisting ones, all protect the project schedule.
• PDMS provides a fully interactive, easy-to-use 3D environment forevery designer on the project, supported by a Microsoft Office-styleuser interface based on .NET technology and the latest in 3D graphical interaction tools.• As the designers work with their specialist functions, they havevisibility of the entire design at all times. To create their part of thedesign they place instances of parametric components from acatalogue (under the control of engineering specifications) and, indoing so, they construct a highly intelligent PDMS database.• Clash checking and configurable integrity checking rules identifyerrors and inconsistencies across the design.• Conventional issue, revision, and change control processes can all beapplied without introducing a large overhead or delays in projectswhich can have many hundred users.• State-of-the-art 3D editing features with graphical handles andnumeric feedback make design and modification quick and easy.
Design and Modification is quick and easy – even for the novice user 
• Built-in intelligence, combined with configurable rules andassociations, ensure that designers are highly productive during all design and modification activities.• Design rules created between plant items (for example, to link a rangeof pipes to a penetration or to ensure that a piece of equipment iscorrectly located over supporting beams) can be recheckedautomatically at any time during the design.• Design and component information from earlier PDMS projects can bereused or shared across multiple projects. Utilities to change pipe sizeor specification enable rapid modification to adjust to new project conditions.• A general import function fromMicrosoft Excel allows largevolumes of data from external sources to be analysed on lineand bulk-loaded into the design.• The standard PDMS applicationcan be customised to fit individual industry or project requirements, or to add furtherdesign rules or automation intothe design process.• Undo and Redo facilities arewidely available. Whole or part projects can be rewound to anyprevious state.
• The Equipment functions build 3D models for all kinds of plant items,from pumps and exchangers through to complex items such as reactorvessels and compressors. They are used in all kinds of layout studies,arrangement drawings and connectivity or clash checks.• Multiple graphical representations are available, so that spacesrequired for key maintenance activities can be visualised and clash-checked during layout and design.• To create an equipment item in the design, the relevant template isselected and the required parameters are defined.• Equipment templates allow complex parameterised designconfigurations to be defined so that they can be quickly and easilyreused, even across multiple projects.• Equipment items include intelligent connection points, with relevant attributes, for the connection of associated piping, ducting,instrument and electrical systems.
