    Many owners/operators of process plants are required to use or implement specific design and engineering applications like AVEVA PDMS. Learn how workflows and third-party tools can help to overcome the challenges of data exchange between Autodesk, Inc., and non-Autodesk Plant Solutions in a multidisciplinary design environment. Learn how we can use AutoCAD Plant 3D software and Revit software to modify and enrich an existing plant design management system (PDMS) project, and how to hand over AutoCAD Plant 3D and Revit models in PDMS format, eliminating the need for remodeling. See how existing PDMS models may be brought into AutoCAD Plant 3D and Revit for work sharing. Also, see how we can convert PDMS catalogue/spec databases into AutoCAD Plant 3D to be used in projects, and how AutoCAD Plant 3D models are converted into intelligent PDMS models using the XMpLant format. Revit is often a preferred tool for architectural and structural design, and Revit models may also be converted into intelligent PDMS models. We will share sample projects and customer stories.
