Autodesk University 2005 reminder

I will hold two classes at AU 2005. Even though these classes are on Plant Design I think many other disciplines can find them valuable. Especially the one about how we work with the engineering tools at Pharmadule Emtunga. We have the following disciplines in-house: Architectural, Structural, HVAC, Electrical, Instrumentation, Telecommunication, Utility Piping and Process Piping. What problems have we run into and how have we solved them? What tools have we chosen and why? How have we integrated all this together? What have we developed in-house? How are we improving our time to market? These questions and a lot more is something I will share with you. Welcome! From a previous post: If this sounds interesting sign in for one or both of them. If you have any questions feel free to contact me.

PD12-1: Multidiscipline CAD Usage at an EPC Company. Session Type: 1.5 hr. Class Date: November 28 Start Time: 10:00 AM End Time: 11:30 AM Expertise: All Levels Description: This case study will discuss CAD usage at Pharmadule Emtunga. They are aiming for project execution using a mix of CAD applications that best suit their needs. AutoCAD, Autodesk Architectural Desktop, PDMS, third-party applications as well as in-house-developed tools are used. An engineering database application is a hub for the information flow. EDM and ERP are also deployed. A data-centric P&ID application is on its way. Topics Covered - Computer-integrated engineering and project execution - AutoCAD integration with PDMS - 2D, 3D, and BIM - P&ID and engineering databases - Customization of AutoCAD Who Should Attend AEC engineers, drafters, CAD managers

PD13-1: Plant Design Tips and Tricks Type: 1.5 hr. ClassDate: November 28 Start Time: 01:00 PM End Time: 02:30 PM Expertise: All Levels Description: This session is a generic tips and tricks class that focuses on how to use AutoCAD features for plant design. Topics covered will be how new features in AutoCAD 2006, such as Dynamic Blocks, Block attribute extraction, and Tables can be used for creating schematics and isometrics, making calculations, and Bill of Materials. The class leader is the CAD manager at an EPC company with a focus on Plant Design. Learn from his experience, increase your productivity, and learn to have a lot of fun using AutoCAD as well. Topics Covered - How to use your CAD tools in your daily work - Dynamic Blocks - Block attribute extraction - Tables - Fields - 2D/3D - Practical uses of dbConnect and MS Access - Hidden or forgotten gems in AutoCAD Who Should Attend Plant design engineers and designers of all engineering disciplines who want to learn how to better use AutoCAD 2006. There are a lot of other great classes to attend as well. I will assist on some of the labs and attend some others. See you there!
