X-Visual will present its new version, PlantEngineer 2015, at the ACHEMA 2015. New functions have been added to the P&ID software which enhance its efficiency and quality in the areas of production, editing and maintenance of flow diagrams, technical process plant documentation and work in a team. The software firm X-Visual Technologies GmbH, developer of engineering software for the design and documentation of technical process plants on the basis of Microsoft Visio, will present the new version of its application, PlantEngineer 2015, at the ACHEMA 2015. In addition to 20 new functions and design elements, the alternative to CAD has a mobile extension enabling on-site plant management.
In combination with mobile end devices such as smart glasses or a tablet the application offers users data and information for the assembly, installation, commissioning and maintenance of technical process plants. The user has access to plant data and information in the form of functional descriptions, user instructions, checklists, directions and technical support or instructional videos. The check and assistance functions support engineers directly in the plant, providing them with needs-based information. The mobile expansion closes the loop for a thorough data management of the plant by showing and documenting changes and construction site information directly on-site, and by synchronizing the information with the system. This prevents data redundancy and costly errors.
Improved functions in the module PlantEngineer â€śOperation Modesâ€ť present plant designers, builders and operators a detailed overview of the functional interrelationships of the plant. Here, users define operational states for the start-up or the filling of the plant. The settings options for plant components such as valves and pumps are visualized directly in the flow diagram by means of a so-called traffic-light system. The module â€śOperation Modesâ€ť enables a better understanding of how the plant functions. A further advantage of the operational states is the direct transmission of data to the process control system. In the form of a data matrix the plant states provide the foundation for programming the process control system. X-Visual will present for the first time the new version of its P&ID software PlantEngineer at the ACHEMA 2015 in Frankfurt am Main from June 15th to 19th at Stand C44 in Hall 9.2.
