HKM (Huettenwerk Krupp Mannesmann) is specialized in the input material production of steel with all necessary process steps—from pig iron production, including the coking plant and sintering plant—up to production of steel, steel slabs, and round steel bars in the continuous casting process. Today, HKM is a steel enterprise which is setting new, worldwide standards within production and environmental protection. And HKM is setting standards in the IT, too—by implementing a true intelligent model of the whole plant, HKM is number one in the industry, having a complete 3D model of their factory site, including inside and outside equipment. This class describes best practice workflows using AutoCAD® Plant 3D, AutoCAD® Civil 3D®, Autodesk® Revit® Structure, Autodesk® Inventor®, and AutoCAD® Map 3D software for creating a database-driven 3D model in Autodesk® Infrastructure Modeler software.
