Streamlining Preliminary Design
SmartPlant Layout significantly streamlines the preliminary layout design process. The interface is simple to learn and use – all application commands are available in a single, consistent environment. The resulting plant layout workflow has been optimized to ensure that high-quality layout options are achieved with minimal design modifications by the designer.
Interface With Detailed Design
All of the equipment, pipe racks, piping, and other plant objects created as part of the preliminary design process in SmartPlant Layout are intelligent, SmartPlant 3D objects. SmartPlant Layout customers already using SmartPlant 3D for detailed design enjoy the benefits of eliminating up to 90 percent of the remodeling normally required when transitioning from preliminary design applications and formats to detailed design.
SmartPlant Layout supports the industry’s leading commercial databases, Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server, enabling it to be deployed in full compliance with your corporate database standards. Since SmartPlant Layout is based on SmartPlant 3D technology, customers who use both products today realize significant savings through elimination of administration overheads, reference data management, and training burdens.
