PlantDataManager was developed for project team members who use plant project data in their daily workflows. With AutoCAD® P&ID and AutoCAD® Plant 3D, project teams can only access and modify project data through the Autodesk applications which typically require workstation grade machines to run on.
With PlantDataManager, project engineers, process engineers, instrumentation engineers, and designers can access plant project data in an intuitive tabular user interface. PlantDataManager allows multiple users to edit project data even while the drawings containing the data are open in production.
Until now users of AutoCAD P&ID and AutoCAD Plant 3D could only capture data for objects placed in drawings or into a model. A key new feature of PlantDataManager is the capacity to create non-placed objects, or NPOs.
NPOs enable project teams to create and manage plant projects components from the PlantData-Manager interface that are typically not represented by graphics or 3D components.
Also, because NPOs can be converted into P&ID objects, project teams can pre-populate project components into the plant project database even before creating P&ID graphics.
Extending the functionality of AutoCAD P&ID further, PlantDataManager also allows users to define and create relationships between plant project objects. Relationships can be defined between graphical objects and NPOs.
PlantDataManager significantly extends the native data handling capabilities of AutoCAD P&ID and AutoCAD Plant 3D, providing increased flexibility and functionality of your plant design workflows.
You can link external and internal databases to your project’s objects within PlantDataManager to push data integration ahead.
This app is completely functional for 15 days.
