June 6, 2018 - With the latest version Engineering Base 2018 (EB) to be presented for the first time at ACHEMA´18, Aucotec AG has expanded the process engineering of its platform. A special focus here is specification-driven tasks, combined with a pipe class catalogue.
Aucotec has decided on a partnership with Drafz Consulting GmbH. Their pipe classes, based on EN 13480 and DIN 21057 (former PAS 1057) and others, checked and extensively documented, can be imported into EB via a standard interface.
In addition to the specification-driven workflow and class warranty, the process engineering with EB 2018 also has rule-based design. Here it can be specified what information is to be passed on from which object to where. This allows users to "propagate through" values, e.g. the diameter of a pump via the pipe, any flanges, reducers and the like. This works from device to device, but also from and to a function.
