Planning software for building wiring installations

Planning software for building wiring installations

Before installing wiring in buildings it is essential to employ planning software to facilitate planning for multiple disciplines, to administer databases and in order to present the end customer with a clear and understandable planning concept. It should be possible to implement interfaces of measuring devices, manufacturer-specific databases and import of graphics files from other planning systems with ease. For education, however, it is also important for the planning software to be easy to learn and for it to quickly offer successful results for small-scale projects as well. The planning software needs to fulfil the following key requirements:

  • Generation of conceptual 3-D models of buildings (building information modelling - BIM)

  • "building SMART" – IFC format for exchange of data

  • Versatile drawing of floor plans and buildings

  • Intelligent components with integrated object detection

  • Safety system to be used as an instrument for monitoring and documentation

  • Conceptual models covering multiple disciplines, electricity, plumbing, heating, air conditioning etc.

  • Calculation functions – integrated expertise

  • Visualisation capabilities

  • Multi-user principle for use on a network
