Plant Design System (PDS) Equipment Modeling (PD_EQP)


Welcome to the PD_EQP module of the Plant Design System of software. Intergraph’s plant design software can be used to design any type of plant—from petrochemical plants, offshore platforms, chemical and pharmaceutical plants, consumer products (food, beverages, cosmetics, soap, paper, etc.), to power plants, waste water treatment plants, and cogeneration facilities.

Specifically, the Plant Design System (PDS) integrates many discipline-specific software modules; these modules automate the many phases of a plant design project. PD_EQP is one of these modules.
