HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - September 21, 2010) - Intergraph will host 2010 CADWorx University, the annual conference for its CADWorx Plant Design Suite featuring the solution's interoperability with Intergraph's CAESAR II® pipe stress analysis software, and PV Elite™, for vessel and exchanger analysis. The conference will be September 27-29 in Houston, Texas.

CADWorx University is the world's largest AutoCAD®-based plant design event, with more than 45 classes, including case histories, hands-on demonstrations, and labs delivered by expert power users and program developers and technical staff from CADWorx & Analysis Solutions. The conference will provide best-in-industry knowledge to attendees and increased value to the companies they represent and includes a preview of enhancements in the upcoming new version, CADWorx 2011. The conference also will feature presentations from three 2010 CADWorx University "Drivers of Success" competition international case study winners: KBR Moscow and Fichtner Consulting and Mech-Tech Projects, both based in India.

This year's keynote speakers will be Patrick Holcomb, executive vice president, Global Business Development, Intergraph Process Power & Marine, and Thomas J. Van Laan, PE, senior vice president, Intergraph CADWorx & Design Solutions. The executives will address the CADWorx and AutoCAD-based plant design market and future plans to integrate CADWorx output into Intergraph SmartPlant Enterprise 3D designs for the efficient coordination and design of larger projects.

"Intergraph CADWorx, along with CAESAR II, PV Elite, and TANK, has created value for users in many industries around the world," Holcomb said. "Intergraph is dedicated to its leadership role in all sectors of the engineering enterprise, and CADWorx University gives us the opportunity to reinforce our commitment to this innovative user community."
