About Hexagon's PPM
Hexagon’s PPM empowers its clients to transform unstructured information into a smart digital asset to visualize, build and manage structures and facilities of all complexities, ensuring safe and efficient operation throughout the entire lifecycle.
3D Design and Visualization
For manufacturing and power industries, meeting higher production goals and stricter regulatory requirements begins with building a better plant. Hexagon PPM provides an integrated design environment for plant construction that defines and manages the 3D plant model. The intelligent, rule-based 3D environment enables faster, silo-free plant design and engineering, better collaboration and reduced time to market. Innovative plant modeling software from Hexagon PPM provides consistent 2D/3D integration between process engineering and detailed engineering disciplines and true workflow-managed integration across the project enterprise.
Intergraph Smart® 3D – a next generation, data-centric, and rule-driven solution – is specifically designed to deliver mission-critical requirements. Breaking through barriers imposed by traditional technologies to enable a truly iterative design environment, Smart 3D provides a competitive edge to EPCs and owner operators alike.
A fundamental component of Hexagon PPM’s, Intergraph Smart 3D provides all of the capabilities needed to design plant, marine, and materials handling facilities, and then maintain their 3D “as-built” representations. Take advantage of data-centric technology, a strong rules- and relationship based architecture, customized automation capabilities, and an integrated reuse approach to execute even the largest and most complex projects with centralized visibility and control.

Intergraph GT STRUDL, blue steel structure for plant owners and designers, the need to integrate plant design and engineering analysis is vital. One without the other could result in costly delays and unexpected expenses. But with the two working together, you have the ability to validate your plant’s design as you go, saving you vital time and resources.
Take advantage of plant analysis solutions that set the standard for the industry. Leading plant engineering companies and owner operators worldwide count on CADWorx & Analysis Solutions to deliver accurate, reliable results. We’ve transformed formerly manual, time-consuming, and error-prone tasks into seamless, accurate processes. From pipe stress analysis to automated full vessel and oil tank analysis, our software helps you improve safety and reliability while tightening the entire design process to save time and money.
CAESAR II®. The world’s most widely used pipe flexibility and stress analysis software, CAESAR II® is a complete solution that enables quick and accurate analysis of piping systems subjected to a wide variety of loads, taking into account weight, pressure, thermal, seismic and other static and dynamic conditions, based on user-defined variables and accepted industry guidelines.
CAESAR II® analyzes piping systems of any size or complexity, whether the need is to design a new system or trouble-shoot an existing one.
TANK™ is a comprehensive, easy-to-use program for the design, analysis and evaluation of welded steel oil storage tanks according to American Petroleum Institute (API) Standards 620, 650, and 653.
TANK™ provides owners, operators, and engineering firms with quick and accurate designs for new tank construction and evaluation of existing tanks.
TANK provides for the design and analysis of wall and bottom plate thickness, supported cone roofs, service and maintenance considerations, and other factors affecting tank design and safety, such as internal pressure, shell settlement, seismic and wind. TANK saves time by letting users select material information automatically from its extensive built-in material databases.
This pressure vessel and heat exchanger design software is easy to learn and use. PV Elite® gives users fast start-up and confidence in their safety code calculations.
PV Elite® provides engineers, designers, estimators, fabricators and inspectors with solutions that match their pressure vessel and heat exchanger design needs. Because the program is easy to learn and use, it is perfect for both regular and occasional users requiring fast start up and confidence in their safety code calculations.
PV Elite is a complete solution for the quick and intuitive design of new pressure vessels, and it also evaluates and re-rates existing vessels, including Fitness for Service analysis. The program considers the whole vessel, addressing all of the wall thickness rules and stress analysis requirements for vertical towers, horizontal vessels and heat exchangers.
Hexagon PPM’s structural analysis and design modeling software is used by structural engineering professionals for concrete, steel, and reinforced concrete design of structures.
For nearly 40 years, GT STRUDL® has offered structural engineers a complete design solution, and we’ve now incorporated 3D CAD modeling and 64-bit high-performance computation solvers into all versions. The structural analysis software is a high-quality, fully-integrated, database-driven system for comprehensive frame and finite element analysis and steel and reinforced concrete design.
GT STRUDL includes all the tools necessary to analyze a broad range of structural engineering and finite element analysis problems, including linear and nonlinear static and dynamic analysis, and it can do so accurately in a fraction of the time of most other solutions. The new CAD modeler user interface has an AutoCAD-based environment that allows structural engineers to instantly see analysis and design results.
