Plant Design Management System (PDMS) is an Engineering Design Software used to model a complete Facility from Foundation level to the Equipment level, Structural level, and as well as Pipe routing .

PDMS (Plant Design Management System) as it is known in the 3D CAD industry, is a customizable, multi-user and multi-discipline, engineer-controlled design software package for engineering, design and construction projects in offshore and onshore.


  • To provide trainees with the basic knowledge of Pipes and Plant Design Management Systems
  • To train engineers to competently design pipes, workflow stations and 3D Plants using the PDMS Software
  • To provide trainees with practical knowledge of the user interface, attributes, positioning and orientation of elements
  • To provide a refresher course for those already involved in the oil and gas pipes and plant design operations

Who Should Attend

Mechanical/ Production engineers, Electrical, Engineers, Chemical Engineers, Materials Engineers, Construction Engineers, Oil and Gas Engineers, Civil-Structural Engineers, Designers and  Draughtsman, Project Engineers and other related disciplines.

About the Training

PDMS has modules for both administrative and designer users. This training is limited to the modules for Designers. However, it is a pre-0

Course Outline for PDMS Designer.

Design Modules:

  • Requires modeling a complete 3D- representation of facilities.
  • Introduction to Design module.
  • Entering Design modules and PDMS
  • Switching between modules.
  • Design Database Hierarchy
  • Menu bars in PDMS design (Display, Edit, View, Selection, Utilities, create, modify, position, orientate, connect, query )
  • Primitive and attributes in PDMS
  • Equipment modeling (HV, VV, and standard equipments)
  • Structural modeling (ASL, Beams and Columns, Panels and Plates, walls and floors)
  • Cable tray modeling (fixed tray, reducer, bend, cross, tee, riser)
  • HVAC modeling (Rectangular components, Circular components, Flat oval components, Transformation, Branch connectors, Inline plant equipment).
  • Pipework modeling.(Piping fundamentals, piping and  components / pipeline modeling)
  • Design templates.

Draft Modules:

This module is used to extract project general arrangement drawing. Using this module all discipline including piping, structural, electrical etc. extract all the required general arrangement drawing. Extracting general arrangement drawing using draft module helps user to use annotation and tagging as required.

  • Introduction to drafting
  • Entering draft module
  • Types of graphics in draft module
  • Draft database
  • Draft Database Hierarchy
  • Auto Drawing Production (ADP)
  • Autodraft/Final designer
  • Sectioning of views in draft
  • Dimensioning (Linear, Angular and Radial)
  • Modifying of dimensions
  • Labelling, Printing, Sheet selections (Title, Key plan, and Reference drawings)

Spooler Modules:

  • Used to measure spool and distances and insert welds in piping components.
  • Introduction to spooler
  • Entering spooler module
  • Data consistency check
  • Measuring pipe length
  • Inserting weld
  • Spliting a tube with a weld
  • Ploting the spool drawings.

ISO Draft Modules:

Used to produce isometric plot files of pipes and networks, from either the Design or Fabrication databases, to your own required standards. These drawings can be used for pipe work fabrication, as well as during on-site erection.
