AVEVA PDMS 12.1 Equipment and Piping Design

 

AVEVA PDMS Foundations

AVEVA PDMS is a complex program with different applications that enables discipline designers to create a 3D model of a plant. These applications use common features within the Design module that designers need to be familiar with before embarking on discipline specific application training.

Aim

The aim of this training module is to provide the basic knowledge of the common features that provide the ‘foundations’ for PDMS Design.

Objectives

  • Explain how PDMS can assist in Plant design
  • Familiarise trainees with the basics of the User Interface
  • Explain how to manipulate the model in 3D
  • Explain Element Attributes, Positioning and Orientation of Elements
  • Introduce the Model Editor for graphical model manipulation Prerequisites
  • Keyboard Skills
  • Familiarisation with Microsoft Windows
  • Knowledge of Plant Design

Course Structure

Training will consist of oral and visual presentations, demonstrations and set exercises. Each workstation will have a training project, populated with model objects. This will be used by the trainees to practice their methods, and complete the set exercises.

Pipework Modelling

Pipe routing is probably the activity that consumes most time on any large project and it is also one which can cause a large number of difficulties. Pipe routing has always been one of the major strengths of PDMS which will be demonstrated throughout this module.

Aim

The aim of the course is to provide the skills required to use the PDMS Piping Design application in the most productive way. It will introduce some of the techniques that are used in the other Design applications and provide an understanding of Piping components, routing, checking isometrics and simple Clash detection.

Objectives

At the end of this training course participants will able to:

  • Understand the basic concepts of Pipes and Branches.
  • Understand the use of piping specifications in AVEVA Plant.
  • Understand the concept of branch heads and tails and the importance of component list order and flow direction within a branch.
  • Create position and orientate piping components.
  • Use fabrication machines to select bends, Production Checks and NC Output.
  • Orient and position components in falling pipelines.
  • Apply Insulation and Tracing to pipelines
  • Use more complex positioning with relation to other design items.
  • Run Data Consistency Checks to screen or file, including Parameters and Tolerances and to understand most of the diagnostic messages.
  • Perform simple Clash Checks
  • Understand Basic Hole Management
  • Produce Check Isometrics.
  • Create and use Piping Design Assemblies.
  • Understand pipe splitting on components or by using Assemblies.

Prerequisites

It is expected that trainees will have completed the PDMS Foundations training course. Trainees who can demonstrate a suitable understanding of other PDMS applications and techniques may also be permitted to undertake the training.

Design Utilities

The AVEVA PDMS Foundations training module introduced Designers to the basic concepts of PDMS. This training module introduces further Design Utilities that assist productivity and produce data from the model to show the power of data centric design.

2

Aim

The aim of this training module is to introduce Design Utilities that complement and build open those covered in the AVEVA PDMS Foundations training module.

Objectives

  • To introduce the concept of clash detection and how it may be used interactively by Designers.
  • To enable a user to create quick reports and produce report templates.
  • To explain the basic principles of surface treatment and its application to Design elements.

Prerequisites

It is expected that trainees will have completed the PDMS Foundations training course. Trainees who can demonstrate a suitable understanding of other PDMS applications and techniques may also be permitted to undertake the training.

Equipment Modelling

AVEVA PDMS is a complex program with different applications that enables discipline designers to create a 3D model of a plant design. One of these applications is the Equipment application. This allows designers to create realistic 3D representations of plant equipment for use within the wider context of the 3D PDMS model.

Aim

The aim of this training module is to provide basic knowledge of the Equipment Modelling application within PDMS.

Objectives

  • Explain the basic theory behind Equipment Modelling in PDMS.
  • Create equipment using primitives.
  • Demonstrate the use of Standard Equipment models.
  • Explain the creation of Electrical Equipment.
  • Prepare equipment reports.
  • Utilise equipment associations.
  • Understand hole management from an Equipment standpoint.
  • Explain how to create Volume Models in PDMS.

Prerequisites

It is expected that trainees will have completed the PDMS Foundations training course. Trainees who can demonstrate a suitable understanding of other PDMS applications and techniques may also be permitted to undertake the training.

Course Structure

Training will consist of oral and visual presentations, demonstrations and set exercises. Each workstation will have a training project, populated with model objects. This will be used by the trainees to practice their methods, and complete the set exercises.

Structural Modelling

AVEVA PDMS allows designers to utilise an array of applications contained within the program modules. This training guide provides discipline specific training for the Structural Modelling application contained within the design module.

Aim

The aim of this training guide is to provide designers with the knowledge and skills necessary to create and modify structural models.

Objectives

  • Introduce PDMS concepts specific to the Structural Modelling application.
  • Make designers aware of the administration elements required by the application.
  • Explain how to create a variety of structural elements.
  • Explain how to manipulate and modify structural elements.
  • Understand how to apply section fittings, section joints and panel fittings.
  • Outline the use of aid constructs and working planes.
  • Explain how to assign materials to structural elements.
  • Explain how holes and penetrations effecting structural elements are managed in PDMS.

Prerequisites

It is expected that trainees will have completed the PDMS Foundations training course. Trainees who can demonstrate a suitable understanding of other PDMS applications and techniques may also be permitted to undertake the training.

Course Structure

Training will consist of oral and visual presentations, demonstrations, worked examples and set exercises. Each workstation will have a training project populated with model objects. This will be used by the trainees to practice their methods and complete the set exercises.
