The HVAC Design product provides customers with a complete set of tools to create, modify, analyze and manage physical designs of HVAC systems using industry standard conventions, terminology, and practices. The tools are focused on creating an intelligent HVAC layout that captures the design intent.   

Intelligent HVAC design allows users to create and validate their designs more productively and, in addition, reuse the captured intelligence for downstream design processes.

The product supports the definition of HVAC configurations. This involves general layout tools for intelligent placement of parts. Specifically, a full set of routing and parts placement methods are provided and the user can choose the methodology that is right for a given situation. Specification driven design is available to ensure compliance with the project standard. Function driven design is used to ensure that the design intent is available for any modification scenario. 

In addition, full capabilities are provided to quickly query design information, and generate appropriate report information. These design tools are provided via a highly intuitive and productive interface that allows the user to create, modify, and manage designs quickly.

The product includes comprehensive and flexible setup functions that will provide a rapid way to define project standards and catalogs that get the users into production quickly. This product comes with a starter HVAC parts catalog.
