The Tubing Design product provides customers with a complete set of tools to create and manage logical designs of tubing systems using industry standard conventions, terminology, and practices.  

The tools are focused on creating an intelligent tubing layout that captures all appropriate design information. This intelligent tubing design capability allows the user to create and validate their designs more productively. In addition, the captured intelligence can be reused for downstream design processes.

The product supports the definition of tubing configurations. This involves general layout tools to place and locate tubing and the creation and management of complex tubing lines. A full set of routing and parts placement methods allows users to choose the one that is right for a given context. 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. Integration with design rules allows automation of the design process, and ensures that company standards are followed throughout the design process. In addition, full capabilities are provided to quickly query design information, and generate appropriate report information. All of these design tools are provided via a highly intuitive and productive interface that allows the user to create, modify, and manage designs quickly.

Together with other products, the Tubing Design product gives users the power to manage their tubing systems from initial design to ship or plant operations, in a completely flexible way.
