CADWorx® & Analysis University 2011 (CAU2011) opened today in Houston with keynote presentations by Rick Allen, senior vice president, Intergraph® CADWorx & Analysis Solutions (Intergraph CAS), and Patrick Holcomb, executive vice president, Global Business Development, Intergraph Process Power & Marine (Intergraph PP&M), during which Intergraph announced new initiatives and investments for Intergraph CAS products and services.
This year’s CAU2011 keynotes carried the theme of “Enhancing Productivity through Collaboration” and focused on the Intergraph CAS vision for plant design and engineering. Emphasis was given to current and future product developments, and the progress made on Intergraph’s commitment to integrate the Intergraph CAS products with the company’s SmartPlant® Enterprise solutions. Also outlined were the increased resources being made available to speed the future development of the Intergraph CAS productportfolio.
Now in its fourth year, CAU is designed to deliver a quality educational experience that includes 55-plus classes and hands-on labs, all delivered by expert users and program developers, plus real-life case histories and development forums to help attendees get more out of their investment. CAU2011 continues through Wednesday, Sept. 21.
“CADWorx & Analysis University is always important because it gives us the opportunity to listen to our users and share with them methods to make them more effective and productive,” Allen said. “After these three days, attendees will leave with knowledge that would sometimes take years of trial and error to obtain.”
Products featured at CAU2011 are: Intergraph CADWorx Plant Design Suite for intelligent AutoCAD®-based plant design modeling, process schematics and automatic production of plant design deliverables; Intergraph CAESAR II®, the world's most widely used pipe stress analysis software; Intergraph PV Elite® for pressure vessel and heat exchanger design and analysis.
