The MEP toolset (previously referred to as AutoCAD MEP) is now included with AutoCAD as a specialized toolset. The MEP toolset contains tools geared to mechanical, electrical, and plumbing professionals in the building industry. The various workspace environments (electrical, HVAC, piping, plumbing, and schematic) include individual palettes and domain-specific ribbons to optimize specific workflow tasks. The MEP toolset is built specifically to create and modify software-based design and documentation productivity to help eliminate errors and provide accurate information to the user, allowing more time for MEP design. This study details the productivity gains that users may experience when using AutoCAD with the MEP toolset rather than basic AutoCAD when designing and documenting a building.
