German term or phrase: Strangschemen
Help! "Das Software-Paket HT CAE vereint in sich eine Vielzahl von Features: schnelle Planerfassung, automatische Strangschemen"
In a brochure about computer-aided engineering software. I'm also not sure of the best translation for Planerfassung... any help appreciated.

Explanation:
the special feature of the software is the "automatisch", so I'd lay stress on that.
With "Planerfassung" is probably meant the conversion of drawings from traditional media to electronic media. In this case the "Planerfassung" would be "drawing conversion"

Thanks to both answerers, but yes, Denise you were right that Planerfassung is converting or incorporating plans into a software CAE program (a CAD engineer confirmed it for me!). And piping runs or diagrams is just right.

Piping diagram


Explanation:
Considering this is an engineering program, a Strang is usually a piping run, piping length or simply piping and Scheme in this context would be diagram. As for Planerfassung, maybe something along the lines: drawing up / formulating / conceiving plans.

Good luck!
