Success factors in plant design and how to keep an overview
How to successfully design process plant in a comprehensive way despite the multiple design disciplines
By: CAD Schroer GmbH
Individual disciplines combine to make a whole
The plant designer's task is to combine technical components into a fully-functional complete plant system. The various design disciplines and systems form interlocking, sub-plants that integrate various technologically connected sub-systems and components. Only the correct interaction of all the subsystems enables the desired, comprehensive overall plant performance. In this context, each discipline and its systems have different characteristics and interrelationships that must always be taken into account.
Multi-disciplinary design of a plant
Due to the large number of interconnected disciplines, systems and sub-systems, complete plants are highly complex. For this reason, plant design today is only practically possible with the help of specialised CAD software. Despite the high degree of complexity, this software makes it possible to maintain an overall view of all design disciplines. After all, efficient design is the basis for the economic efficiency and technical performance of a plant. In particular, the early phase of design is crucial and must be supported by appropriate software tools in order to minimise costs in assembly, production and maintenance over the entire plant life cycle.
The tool for integrated plant design
Plant design software is precisely tailored to the challenges of plant construction and is therefore a constant companion to plant engineering projects. This is because it not only offers the possibility of designing a plant involving multiple disciplines in 3D, it can also take all the subsystems into account. Thanks to the architecture of plant design software such as M4 PLANT, even very large and extensive models from customers or suppliers can be imported into the design. Size-independent 3D design is possible by plant engineering systems such as M4 PLANT, as is the possibility of generating all 2D/3D data and information for production and documentation for the plant.
