In collaboration with EPLAN Software & Services B.V. we are happy to invite you to a hands-on seminar and workshop in Systems Engineering and RDS/81346 in The Netherlands.
At the seminar we will focus on how to create a common language among different disciplines and tools by using systems engineering and RDS/81346 in combination. We will give an introduction to the Systems Engineering Concept and the relation to all the news in the ISO/IEC 81346 series coming in 2017. In the afternoon we will have a hands-on workshop and make the first steps in designing a system architecture using systems engineering and RDS principles.

Two seminars will be held, so you can choose between 8th of June in Reeuwijk or 9th of June in Zevenaar. Price is 325 EUR p.p. Please follow this link to sign up, see the full program and other useful information. 

The seminar will be held in English and partly in Dutch and we would be very happy to meet you there!

The brand new English DS handbook 166:  A Guide to RDS – Reference Designation Systems is now available for purchase from the  Danish Standards Foundation. 

The previous guide in English was from 2010, and a lot of new things have happened since then. You may say that RDS is not static at all, and development is ongoing! So the guide has undergone a complete makeover with a lot of new stuff on RDS / 81346 and we are excited to share it with you.

Highlights in the new 81346 guide are:

  • Strong relation to Systems Engineering – how to handle complexity of any design
  • How RDS establishes correspondence among documentation of systems
  • Description of the new three letter codes from 81346-2 (2017 edition)
  • Description and examples of the new Type aspect (prefix %) from 81346-12 (2017 edition)
  • Description and examples of the new 81346-12 RDS-CW: RDS for Construction Works
  • The new rule for designating properties of systems in the reference designation
  • Description and example of determining interfaces among systems
  • On the necessity of double TAG – how to map between your RDS and any other TAG

+ Tables for technical objects, spaces and infrastructure
+ Tables for functional system and technical systems in RDS-CW
+ 45 examples and 115 figures to guide you!

For quite some time now, we have been working on making the ISO/IEC 81346 standard more accessible to practitioners and increasing its adoption in industry. With the upcoming revision of 81346-2 we have seen an opportunity to not only improve the standard, but also bring it into the hands of anyone. We are therefore proud to announce the launch of the RDS 81346 smartphone app for Android and IOS – free of charge.
