PTC Routed Systems Designer 4.0 Speeds Systems Interconnect Design

Delivers Fast Time-To-Market, Enhanced Product Quality and Information Exchange

NEEDHAM, Mass., May 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- PTC , the product development company(TM), today announced the availability of Pro/ENGINEER(R) Routed Systems Designer (RSD) 4.0. RSD is a powerful diagramming solution that enables the fast and easy creation of even the most sophisticated routed system schematic diagrams.

RSD is a complete stand-alone diagramming tool and is also optimized for use with Pro/ENGINEER. Through a lightweight XML interface, RSD enables the automatic routing of cabling and piping systems with Pro/ENGINEER, thereby eliminating the mechanical engineer's manual, tedious task of interpreting the 2D schematic design to route the 3D cabling and piping. This robust XML interface also enables RSD diagrams to be shared with other applications. RSD's highly intuitive user interface allows designers to create the complete spectrum of 2D electrical and piping diagrams for systems of any complexity. Through a lightweight XML interface, RSD enables the automatic routing of cabling and piping systems with Pro/ENGINEER. RSD automates the review process to ensure that the completed 3D design complies exactly with the 2D schematic specifications.

"RSD 4.0 eliminates the time-consuming and error-prone process of integrating schematic design with routing and piping processes," said Brian Shepherd, Senior Vice President PTC Product Management. "Now design teams can define the complete digital model, eliminating cumbersome manual processes while speeding time to market, dramatically improving product quality and reducing total product costs."

Unlike general drafting tools, simple flowcharting packages, or add-on modules of CAD systems, RSD addresses the high performance needs of schematic designers creating a wide range of diagram types including wiring, process and instrumentation (P&ID), block, functional, and schematic diagrams. It is a hierarchal solution designed to accommodate design reuse and more sophisticated projects.

  RSD 4.0 delivers powerful new capabilities including:

  -- The ability to create schematic designs quickly and easily using an
    intuitive interface for organizing design sheets and catalog libraries.
  -- Multi-discipline breadth of necessary diagrams for all disciplines from
    a single program.
  -- Optimized to drive Pro/ENGINEER 3D cabling and piping solutions: RSD
    can automate the design of downstream wiring, cabling, and piping in 3D
    MCAD design applications via XML, and is specifically optimized for
  -- Multi-User Capability: RSD is a single-user solution that can grow into
    a multi-user solution to reduce time-to-market.
  -- Design Reuse And Automation:  RSD can leverage existing libraries or
    templates to speed the creation of new designs.

RSD 4.0, available in English, German, French and Japanese, runs on Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 2000, Windows XP; Sun Solaris 2.6, 2.7, 2.8 and HP- UX 11.0 11.0i platforms and is available through PTC's direct and indirect sales channels.
