MPDS4 Plant Engineering Suite Overview
The MPDS4 plant design system is a database-driven suite of powerful, multi-user plant engineering applications, providing design disciplines for every plant design challenge, including 2D to 3D building layout and handling systems design, as well as P&ID driven process piping. Integrated interference and consistency checking and auto-routing of pipes, cables and HVAC systems allow designers to quickly create high quality concept designs through to fully detailed plans of entire installations. MPDS4 users can interactively create custom parametric catalog components, and conduct virtual 3D walk-throughs in their design environment at any time.
“By providing free access to professional design software, we hope to provide students with a good start into a successful engineering future. We look forward to active collaboration with universities and valuable feedback from young engineers,” Michael Schroer concludes.
