OpenPlant: Information Modeling for Today's Plant Projects

In this new eSeminar, you’ll learn about the features of OpenPlant 3D applications and discover powerful new 2D/3D comparison capabilities.

Discover how OpenPlant V8i can support your plant teams with:

  • An open and interoperable system using iRING/ISO 15926 as its intrinsic schema, allowing any application using the same open schema, including third-party systems, to natively share all data with full fidelity
  • File and component workflows combining all pertinent plant software standards, including DGN, RealDWG, point clouds, and PDF
  • 2D/3D comparison tools that enable data to be shared between the P&ID and the model, speeding the design process and facilitating consistency checking across tags
  • Scalability to support design projects of all size, from greenfield mega-projects to brownfield rework



 Intelligent P&IDs: The OpenPlant 2D Workflow
In this new eSeminar, you’ll learn about OpenPlant PowerPID V8i and how you can benefit:

  • Rapid, affordable creation of intelligent P&IDs
  • Collaboration through open access and ISO 15926 schema
  • Operational compliance via accurate, physical plant representations

OpenPlant PowerPID V8i efficiently creates more accurate, intelligent, and portable P&IDs for faster, more accurate projects at lowered cost.
