pit – CAE

Fast and exact TGA – planning on the basis of room data

pit – CAE is a multi-user capable tool, with which masses and calculation bases for plant planning can be determined as quickly as precisely on the basis of area information and room types.

In case room types and the associated room – plant – allocation change during the planning phase, all plant data can be updated in no time at all. pit – CAE can also be coupled bidirectionally with the CAD – software.

The advantages at a glance:
  • optimal planning aid for cost estimation and calculations according to DIN 276 T2
  • fast calculations of TGA masses
  • Asset management according to DIN 276 T2
  • Standardization and stabilization of planning processes
  • Determination of key figures for technical decisions
  • Definition of (quality) standard also for follow-up projects
  • Design of safety, communication and heavy current technology
  • Elimination of isolated applications prevents storage of redundant data
  • Power calculation of the plants by assignment of the rooms
  • Integrated plant identification system AKS
  • integrated local identification system (OKS)
  • Room and function program
  • Document management
  • Evaluation like room book, plant report, door lists, area verification DIN 277
