Pro/E RSD vs Autocad Electrical

Pro/E RSD vs Autocad Electrical

Our manufacturing engineering group has been researching what to implement for a CAD package for designing and documenting the electrical & controls systemdesign of assembly lines and manufacturing cells that they build and / or maintain. In talking with some outside sources we work with on such projects, the recommendation that keeps coming back is to use Autocad Electrical. All of our product engineering groups and the segment of our manufacturing engineering group that designs the mechanical equipment (test cells, rotary tables, track layout, equipment frames, etc.) are standardized on Pro/E - currently Wildfire 3. Question is, is anyone out there successfully using a Pro/E software such as RSD for the electrical & controls system design & documentation? Keep in mind that the equipment we're building is one-off and not so tightly packaged that we need to simulate the routing of cables and such through a 3D CAD mockup of the assembly equipment. I'm leaning towards supporting their decision to implement A-Cad electrical for their needs. Any resounding "NO, Don't do it!" from anyone? Any success or failure stories either way?

Erik
