How can 3D Model Software Improve Plant Design Engineering (PDE) Productivity?

July 22, 2014

Today, it becomes practically significant to use 3D modelling software for Plant Design Engineering organisations on the road to improve engineering productivity and reduce overhead cost and time.

Advantages of 3D Modeling Software on Plant Design Engineering:

  • Able to visualize more ‘what-if’ scenarios during the design process.
  • It is easier to create model renderings and animations for design proposals or reviews.
  • More effective internal 3D model reviews.
  • Faster design output and productivity (roughly 50% faster on average over 2D).
  • Generation of virtual prototypes allows non-CAD people to participate in the process.
  • Easily incorporates latest design changes and engineering scope.
  • Test and validate your designs to reduce costs from quality problems, errors, ECO’s.
  • Reduce the need, time and cost of physical prototype models.
  • Gives automatic Bill of Materials for easier procurement purpose.
  • Better data management to organize and manage your design data.
  • Helps to standardize on detailing and drafting practices.
  • Automate your design process and increase speed and accuracy of output and response to customers.
  • Auto ISO generation for accurate material consumption and reduce procurement and fabrication time.
  • Piping 3D Model can be done with all global standards (Ex: ASME, DIN etc.)
  • Intelligent Data Report Manager gives accurate bill of materials as incorporated.
  • Intelligent P&ID can create piping & instrument diagram as per process.
  • Reduce man power for optimal resource consumption.

Know about the PDE Quality, Sustainability, Time and Cost:

  • 3D Model – Quality
    • It is easier to create designs with intelligent objects.
    • Gives better visibility, facilitates zero errors and omissions regardless of how many times the plant design changes.
    • It simulates real-world appearance, performance, and cost for the engineering personnel.
  • 3D Model – Sustainability
    • Monitor, manage and improve performance using intelligent 3D models.
  • 3D Model – Time and money
    • Before the construction begins, engineers can visualize output of entire plant and reduce costly design conflicts practically for better efficient optimised design.
