Current market overview of industry software for plant engineering. In plant engineering, technical plants are designed from individual components or assemblies. The software for plant engineers listed here covers the typical business processes such as the planning and design of individual assemblies (e.g. piping, welded structures, frames) or modeling for in-situ concrete and precast concrete construction. Often the software supports simulation and validation of the design results. It usually includes various visualizations. The software for plant design usually supports the standard data formats IFC, CIS/2, SDNF etc. and usually allows data exchange with structural analysis systems or manufacturing and plant design systems (Plant Design Management System - PDMS).
