CATIA V5 is a software chosen to perform the design and integration within ITER of both systems: fluid and mechanical systems. The broad range of applications provides the ability to develop the design process from the functional 2D design (P&ID) to the 3D plant layouts and detailed design.The 2D symbols for the equipment and piping components were developed in accordance with EN ISO 10628 standard, ISO 3511 (part I, II and IV) standard and DIN 28401 standard and considering the classification and settings done by FZK-team in the PRM-FZK-TLK in order to ensure compliance with the established design standards. These symbols were inserted in 2D catalogues linked with the main catalogue installed in PRM-FZK-TLK on CATIA SERVER at TLK-FZK and intensively tested in Piping & Instrumentation Diagrams.The 3D part for the equipment, instruments and piping components was developed according to the specifications, industrial conventions, terminology and literature available in library, internet and practice. All parts were parametrically built in order to allow the designer to modify the part geometry according to the design. The 3D parts were typed in accordance with IKARUS-Project Instructions by FZK team, inserted in 3D test catalogues and tested in Equipment and Systems workbench.
