This class will explore the design process, the collaboration, and the data flows of a cloud-based instrumentation and electrical design project. The class will also review the advantages of cloud-based technology for this purpose, and we will provide hands-on interaction with a cloud project, so bring your Internet-ready laptop to the class. We will also cover the design and data flows between a synchronized AutoCAD P&ID software project and a cloud instrumentation and electrical project, and we will review the integration with AutoCAD software products required at the client end of the cloud-based project. The class will also have an overall focus of creating, modifying, and generating instrumentation and electrical deliverables such as loop diagrams, junction-box wiring diagrams, hookups, datasheets, and reports.
- Learn how to create an instrumentation and electrical database and design deliverables
- Understand the topology and benefits of a cloud-based I&E project
- Understand the integration of the cloud I&E project with AutoCAD software server and client products
- Collaborate with others in the production and modification of project data in the cloud
