International TechneGroup Limited (ITI) Partners with Process Industry Solution Provider ITandFactory GmbH

Cambridge, UK, 2 February 2017 – International TechneGroup Limited (ITI) the global leader providing reliable interoperability, validation and migration solutions for product data and related systems, and developers of the CADfix software, has teamed with ITandFactory GmbH, creators of the integrated plant design and engineering data management solution, CADISON®.

CADISON® solution is built around the object oriented technology with modular architecture enabling a model-based process for i²PIM (intelligent & integrated plant information modeling). It provides flexibility to the users to import models (in different formats) for better integration. ITandFactory identified a requirement to simplify CAD models of large equipment installations before import into the CADISON design system. ITI quickly demonstrated that the CADfix translation, repair and simplification solution could address their immediate needs, and from there the partnership evolved. ITI enhanced their existing CADfix toolset to create a specialist Process Plant Simplification Wizard, supported by a series of advanced interactive data reduction tools. The partnership will see ITandFactory offering the “CADISON Equipment Simplifier (powered by CADfix)” to their worldwide user base.

Original 14MB model (left) is reduced to 3MB (right) by CADfix, with an 86% face count reduction Ajit Joshi, the Managing Director of ITandFactory, commented "Our focus at ITandFactory is to establish i2PIM methodology (BIM for Plants) of CADISON, and adding CADfix simplification technology is a significant step towards helping achieve this goal. With this tool, customers can continue with plant design in CADISON independent of the CAD system used by their manufacturing departments.” Our partnership with ITI has expanded our solution suite to include the CADfix simplification technology, which enables orders of magnitude in file size reduction, giving our users more manageable equipment models for integration with the CADISON plant design solution.”

“ITI was eager to work with ITandFactory to provide a solution,” stated Andy Chinn, ITI’s UK Commercial Director. “CADfix already had a suite of model simplification tools, so it was a natural fit to expand the technology to meet the demands of the CADISON customers. We presented the CADISON Equipment Simplifier solution at CADISON International Conference -2016 event where it was very well received. We were pleased with the enthusiasm shown by the CADISON users and look forward to working with ITandFactory and their user community in the future.”
