Library symbols satisfy industry standards
Get access to over 1.000 smart symbols and MultiShapes of ISO10628-2, DIN28000, DIN1861, DIN EN 12792, PIP and ANSI/ISA-5.1-2009. MultiShapes enable simple switching from basic to complex ones. With the comprehensive library you can create your P&IDs even faster and intuitive.
Create intelligent symbols regarding company standard
You can create your own library symbols by using PlantEngineerâ€˜s additional property shapes like apparatus, aggregates and pipe components. Create your own library symbols with customer-specific samples, procurement units, package units and assembly units.
Save assembly units as master shape
Defining assembly units is now much easier then ever before. By selecting all required symbols you can create individual assembly units of your plant very quickly and uncomplicated. The assembly units are available for your projects in your own library at any time.
Automatic tagging function
The tagging function enables automatic numbering of all symbols including your own. You can choose between automatic or manual numbering. Symbols with intelligent tags get their associated prefix like P1 for pump.
Symbol properties and labeling system
The function â€œpaste dataâ€œ allows a fast copy and transfer of properties from one to another symbol.
You can select which information and data shall be transfered just by few clicks. Choose between visible properties, data sets, values of operation states, line color or place all properties of the symbol. Parallel management of internal and customer-labeling scheme.Â Free selectable labeling formats with validation (DIN, KKS, etc.). Components automatically inherit the affiliation to the project, plant section and functional unit measurements. Symbols have features in accordance with their type component.
Dynamic connectors and auto nozzles
Rapid drawing of flow diagrams and P&IDs with intelligent symbols, as well as easy insertion and deletion of components though dynamic piping. The automatic nozzle generations speeds up drawing even more. Document the plantâ€˜s nozzles and apparatuses thanks the pre-designed nozzle list. Create the list per mouse click. The nozzle list consists of information about the connected pipes, nominal diameters, pressure stages, materials and media.
Define standard units
You can define which unit shall be used as standard in your process flow sheet diagram for each deposited unit group like temperature, legth and area. By easy switching in the property list the inserted value will be converted into any other unit of this group.
MultiReports for fast documentation
Use the pre-defined reports for parts lists, measurement and control lists in Excel. Automatically create descriptions of the system, data sheets, handbooks and commissioning documentation in Word. Create individual reports in an instant. Select all components that you want to document in a list by one click. Choose the reports which should be created and updated at once. By using MultiReports you can create the whole documentation of your plant in a few steps.
Visualize the planning status with “Color by Value”
The planning status of each component can be visualized by colors. When changing the component status in the propertiy list the color of the selected symbol changes automatically. This allows a quick view on the planning progress of your construction.
Adaptation to your coporate identity
Deposit the company information and the logo of your company in different image resolutions as a template. The logo and information will be integrated in all reports in Excel, Word and PDF automatically. Complex customizing is not necessary.
Validation and quality control
Errors and inconsistencies can be shown by means of a plausibility test. Determination of errors at an early stage of the project means that costly changes at the construction site can be avoided.
Project data can be exchanged bidirectionally with third-party systems like spreadsheetÂ procurement, ERP, calculations and 3D presentations on the basis of standard formats such as XML. Import and export data to Excel and XML documents.
