Product Description

OpenPlant is a 2D and 3D plant design engineering software suite providing true interoperability through the use of ISO 15926 as an intrinsic data model.

Whether you’re an owner-operator planning a new process manufacturing plant or managing the latest upgrade to your facility or at an Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) firm working to best serve a varied client base, you have one consistent challenge: complexity. Even in “simple” brownfield projects, the following critical questions must be addressed:

  • How do you work with many others on a multidisciplinary design engineering project in an organized and efficient manner?
  • What ensures that you are sharing trustworthy information at the right time and in the right format?
  • How do you control costs and schedules without compromising safety?
  • Is there a way to incorporate lifetime operational issues early into the design engineering process?

OpenPlant is a software suite providing true interoperability for 2D and 3D plant design engineering through integration of the ISO 15926 standard as an intrinsic data model. Its open schema also provides interoperability with any other design system using ISO 15926, as well as ProjectWise and AssetWise for true plant lifecycle management.

OpenPlant shares design information for small projects and, working with ProjectWise, can help you manage multi-billion dollar engineering design projects with global design teams. Using ISO 15926 and Bentley’s i-model containers for distribution and review, OpenPlant’s ability to support reviews early in the design cycle saves time and money but, more importantly, improves the safety of the plants during construction and operations.
