The proven AVEVA PDMS user interface, with its Data Explorers and 3D model views, has been extended for AVEVA PDMS 12.0. AVEVA PDMS 12.0 offers exciting and highly productive new capabilities, while building on its proven strengths AVEVA PDMS 12.0, the heart of the new AVEVA Plant portfolio, is the largest improvement ever. It incorporates step changes in technology and in the data model and is the first of a new series of PDMS releases. An enlarged, multinational development team has been working hard for many months to build the latest new technology into the world-leading plant design tool, to make it still more productive. Most of the other AVEVA Plant products will also be updated to version 12 over the next few months. Among the many technical innovations are an updated user interface, based on Microsoft's .NET platform, and an expanded, more flexible, object-based database structure. Underlying these obvious changes is a technology platform which has been updated to improve workflow support for the engineering design disciplines, including some new to PDMS. In particular, the extended platform enables the incorporation of tighter links with schematic drawings and the electrical and instrumentation disciplines. Page 4 | AVEVA PIPELINE | 2008 Issue 1 Design platform PDMS 12.0 is the first version of a new generation of Plant Design products based on the new AVEVA Design Platform. This combines the best of the technology from both PDMS and the Tribon shipbuilding products, together with numerous extensions and enhancements, to provide a solid technical foundation for marine and plant design products for the next ten years. The enhanced user interface has improved facilities for reporting and customisation, and the option of using Microsoft .NET languages alongside the PML scripting language. It also provides a common Administration and Catalogue for all relevant products. The core of PDMS is its globally enabled database, which has been extended and made even more flexible. There are, of course, many additions to provide all the new functions and applications. There are also options for alternative hierarchies – for example, to present a view more suited to fabrication or assembly. Further flexibility is provided by the ability to group objects across the usual database boundaries, either in systems or arbitrary groupings.
