We have developed relational database software that makes existing
AutoCAD drawings smart. Using our normalized database structure,
engineers do not have to enter the same information in many
different places as they would with traditional methods. Once
data is entered it is carried through to all related documents.
Much of the data is populated by the designers and drafters through
event driven programming in AutoCAD and the drafters aren’t
even aware of their increased productivity.
Our Intelligent AutoCAD ad on can work with almost any drawing
type and no additional modules are required. Minimal training is required
and most AutoCAD users are truly experts within about 2 days.
Our Cable Scheduler
module can generate over half of all circuits within hours instead
of weeks. This data is then used to populate instrument loop drawings,
the engineer simply picks the template for each loop and the drawings
can be generated by the engineer with little or no help from
designers and drafters.
Our Instrument Index module is populated
by the Intelligent AutoCAD module and manufacturer and model number
along with many other fields are populated through the Instrument
Datasheets module thus reducing the task of generating a project’s
Instrument Index from weeks to hours.
Our Process Line List is also populated
through AutoCAD and engineers can go into Access and select which
equipment shows up in the “From” and “To”
fields in the report.
A special bonus to the productivity advantages
of using our software is that back checking project documents
becomes much easier as well.
