Hi all, I am interested to hear from other instrumentation design practioners on the pros and cons (good, bad, ugly) of the following software packages:
InTools from Integraph Corporation (My own assessment - it is a big pain on the back side + mega bucks required for the Oracle server)
DesignIt! from BlueHeron Software, Canada
iDesignOffice - Wiring Manager & Datasheet manager (local product from Melbourne, Australia)
Vantage Plant Engineering from Aveva, UK
- Is the use of these software tools (packages) confined to large EPC contractors (aka Fluor, Bechtel, Foster Wheeler etc) and end users (oil refiners)?
- Do medium sized engineering consultants and self-employed contractors use these packages to derive error free designs (driven by data base generated loop and schematic drawings)?
Any comments and suggestions will be much appreciated. Thanks and regards, Raj Sreenevasan
