Computer aided design systems have found widespread acceptance from Engineering companies as drafting/detailing/drawing tools. While this has brought a dramatic productivity improvement over traditional manual methods for schematic applications, the productivity gains for computer aided engineering activities in AEC has been somewhat spotty. The productivity problem is quite significant in the design of Process and Power Plants. This paper describes how an integrated database management system will deal with this and other problems and produce great improvements in productivity for AEC firms.
