The design of a plant determines its performance and efficiency
Ensuring high design quality from the outset guarantees the performance of a plant from the very first hour of operation

Integrated plant design right from the start
The complexity of a modern process plant is hard to comprehend and requires a holistic approach to the software systems deployed from the very outset of the design process. It is precisely at this point that sophisticate plant design software is required to provide 3D visualisation of the design and integration with other software systems.
The need for intelligent maintenance
Following the completion of a plant, not only does production commence, but also the associated maintenance operations. Companies invest a proportion of their sales revenue in the maintenance of their plant equipment. The goal of every company is to minimise the potential for downtime. If the plant has been designed using intelligent design software, operators can rely on the software to accurately support their maintenance activities. After all, the more a design deviates from reality, the higher the maintenance costs will be. For example, if the plant documentation does not reflect the actual status of the plant, difficulties and time-consuming readjustments will arise during maintenance. Operators can ultimately save money by using intelligent design software from the outset and also for the long-term maintenance of their plant.
Intelligent plant design
One such system has been developed by CAD Schroer. M4 PLANT provides designers with a comprehensive tool to holistically and intelligently design process plant. In addition to extensive 3D design and visualisation capabilities, the modular suite of software also includes applications for project management and quality control.
