You can import data from external tabular sources or graphically capture plant or machine overviews as well as process and instrumentation diagrams. With the help of the EPLAN Preplanning software solution, you can create initial data sheets or specifications for material procurement in the shortest possible time. Of course, you have access to the collected and enriched data for downstream planning phases. The data can be easily and effectively transferred to detailed planning.
