AVEVA further demonstrates open approach with bidirectional interface between AVEVA PDMS and Bentley’s STAAD.Pro
Cambridge, UK - 23 August 2012: AVEVA (LSE:AVV), today announces the release of the AVEVA Structural Analysis Interface - SP for Bentley’s STAAD.Pro. The new product fulfils customers’ needs for an interactive and intuitive method of analysing structural models generated by AVEVA PDMS. The new product supports an improved workflow which saves time and effort by automating the two-way exchange of information between 3D structural design and structural analysis disciplines.
The interface was developed at AVEVA’s Power Centre of Excellence (PCoE) based in Guangzhou. The close collaboration of development and feedback from leading customers means that the product has been tailored for customer needs. This is an excellent example of AVEVA’s commitment to supporting open standards and interoperability across its entire plant, marine and enterprise software product portfolios.
“Structural engineers can export from AVEVA PDMS, analyse and rework the structural model in STAAD.Pro and re-import,” comments Bruce Douglas, Senior VP Marketing & Product Strategy, AVEVA. “The approach means reduced man hours, since there is less time spent validating the design and correcting errors. Its ease of use and integration allows improved design quality as well as being quick to adopt”.
AVEVA’s Integrated Engineering & Design approach enables improved project efficiency and reduced engineering and design costs as users manage information through a single model.
