CAD Schroer Announces Major New Release of MEDUSA4® - Version 4.0

Strong Focus on Client Collaboration and Data Integration

Moers, Germany - 2 September 2009: CAD Schroer Group (CSG), the global engineering solutions provider, today announced the release of version 4.0 – a major new release of its renowned MEDUSA4 Design Automation Suite, including the MPDS4 Plant Design and Factory Layout system. Many of the new tools and enhancements introduced in this version focus on client collaboration, data integration, and even quicker design editing and visualisation.

“A lot of hard work has gone into the latest version, and we’re proud to be able to address so many customer requests and respond rapidly to industry developments. New functionality supports the entire design process from tender design to project delivery, with special emphasis on efficient and visually impressive pre-sales configuration,” explains MEDUSA4 Product Manager Mark Simpson. “Many of our MEDUSA4 3D and MPDS4 plant design customers will be especially excited about the new MPDS4 REVIEW tool. MPDS4 now generates very compact plant models, which can be e-mailed to partners or clients, who then conduct collaborative reviews or walk-throughs on any machine with the tool installed. MPDS4 REVIEW also displays MEDUSA4 3D files for interactive design reviews.”

Enhanced Systems Interoperability
Considerable work has also gone into further enhancing interoperability with third party systems and data. The release sees significant enhancements in terms of speed, quality and file size delivered by the STEP, IGES and 3D DXF interfaces; a new Teamcenter® Interface; and enhanced open database connectivity for MEDUSA4 and MPDS4 for integration into diverse data management architectures. Support for URLs and searchable text strings in drawings, and the PDFs generated from them, further aids collaboration and data integration.

Even Greater Productivity in Plant Design, Factory Layout and Drafting
The MPDS4 Plant Design product suite sees the introduction of intelligent architectural components in the MPDS4 FACTORY LAYOUT™ product, and new multi-replace and automatic pipe fall tools in the MPDS4 PIPING DESIGN™ application. On the 2D side, CAD Schroer’s design productivity tools, including Parametrics, SMART Edit, Smart Drafting and dimensioning, have been further enhanced.

“Customer loyalty is one of our hallmarks,” explains Michael Schroer, the company’s Founding Director. “We work hard to retain that loyalty by offering customers a sound partnership based on engineering know-how, and constant proof – by way of regular software updates and releases with innovative cost-saving productivity tools – that their maintenance money is well-spent. I think customers will agree that there’s something to help everyone work more productively in this major release.”
