Simple Drag & Drop functionality

The core functionality of The Single-Use Design Tool™ is simply "drag & drop" design. This allows users to create and combine single-use assemblies, to build a visual representation of the whole process. Both standard and bespoke design assemblies can be incorporated.

Developed by our Tech Team, the Single Use Design Tool™ offers advantages for direct use by pharma end users and for PM Group. End users can use the tool for simplification and streamlining of existing facilities. Whereas the tool is part of our internal project delivery process for the design of single-use facilities by PM Group.

The 350 SDD™ assemblies are incorporated in the tool, ready to be used in any design. Additionally, it allows the development of complex custom designs, where a suitable standard design is not available.

“PM Group's Single-Use Design Tool™ is perfect for getting an overview of the number and design of consumables. It is also the solution for showing the connection between P&ID's and the consumables that are not mapped in them. The design is easy to understand for technical and non-technical people. It helps to communicate the plant design and how consumables are used within a process. It can also be used to establish a direct line of communication with suppliers for bidding, improvements, etc.“
