HiCAD and HELiOS: The comprehensive project solution for all industries

HiCAD in combination with HELiOS provides you with a comprehensive solution in the project business area. The complete process chain from the first draft and the model creation through to the generation of all related documents is handled by the CAD software HiCAD, while the PDM system HELiOS manages all order-related and process-relevant data.

  • Plant Engineering
  • Civil Engineering
  • Product Construction
  • PDM/PLM



Product Establishing a new product on the market requires minimization of development times, keeping track of changes to the related model drawings, and a promotionally successful presentation of the final result.

With its powerful 3-D modelling functions, the cross-sectoral design variant technology and an extensive standard parts catalogue the CAD software HiCAD provides you with the best possible tool for your design tasks.

Textures and panoramas supplement make the representation of the product more realistic. A deeper insight into the product can be gained by exploded layouts, motion and mounting simulations. 

Furthermore, HiCAD supports data exchange with all standard interfaces in 2-D and 3-D.

To enable a smooth integration of your order- and product-related data into your company-wide data flow, our PDM system HELiOS offers, besides an efficient document and article management, the option to transfer CAD product structures to ERP systems.

Today, high demands on quality and speed during the detailing and implementation stages of projects pose great challenges to planners in the field of civil engineering. To meet these challenges, the ISD Group pursues a policy of close cooperation with their customers and has made the HiCAD Management+BIM module its practical solution for a flexible and secure expert planning in civil engineering.  

Flexibility and planning security during the complete project is guaranteed thanks to the unique, combined 2-D/3-D approach.  Simple and highly complex supporting structure and facade construction projects can be realized in an easy and transparent way with state-of-the-art design technology. In an innovative engineering process you will have access to the solution for steel engineering constructions as well as for glass, element, industrial and ventilated facades. Industry-specific functions and a high degree of automation further optimize the product development process with regard to quality and timelines.  

All documents related to production, mounting and ordering will be automatically generated, updated and safely managed, by means of appropriately defined access permissions, in the HELiOS Product Data Management system via integrated standard functionalities and corresponding interfaces (DSTV-NC, DXF, IFC etc.).

Highlights

 

  • Cross-sectoral, multi-industry solutions guaranteeing intuitive design processes
  • Maximal flexibility thanks to combined free and parametric approach
  • Simultaneous processing of multiple parts from different assemblies
  • State-of-the-art 2-D/3-D drawing and modelling tools minimizing errors in production
  • Automatic identical part search, itemization and workshop drawing generation shortening timelines required for detailing
  • BIM data management guaranteeing complete production documents

Today, product data and document management (PDM), as well as the safety and traceability of processes play an essential role in enterprises throughout all branches of industry. Products are created in working environments where complex dependencies, huge amounts of data and decisions of many departments have to be taken into account. In addition, the knowledge that is created in the course of the product lifecycle does often not only originate from various departments of your company, such as Engineering, Sales, Production or Marketing, but also from locations outside of your company, which can be distributed all over the world.

HELiOS, our software solution for Product Data Management (PDM), enables an effortless handling of even the largest amounts of data. State-of-the-art PDM functions ensure a safe management and productive use of the corporate knowledge. Whether E-mails, production drawings or various documentation – all data and documents created during the product development process are centrally managed and are readily available at any time. Processes such as access rights control, version control, document distribution, work instructions, order transactions etc. can be controlled with HELiOS in a safe and precise manner. In this way, the communication across departments and locations can be improved significantly – with positive effects on the complete product development process.

Highlights

  • State-of-the-art PDM functions for a central management of product data and documents
  • Comprehensive security through access rights and version control
  • Optimised work processes
  • Graphical workflows
  • ISO 9000 ff conformity
  • Fast and safe communication across departments and locations
  • Unlimited flexibility due to modular structure
  • Easy integration into existing IT environments
  • Multi CAD-capability
  • Interface to EPLAN Electric P8 (as of HELiOS 2016 SP1)
  • Preconfigured out-of-the-box solutions
  • Available with a comprehensive service package if desired
