The piping and instrumentation diagram, or P&ID, is the "process roadmap" of the plant and is developed, accessed, shared, and modified throughout the plant life cycle. Therefore, it is critical that the P&ID is kept up-to-date, accurately reflecting the as-built plant because other disciplines base their design decisions on the data from P&IDs.
SmartPlant® P&ID helps you develop and manage your P&IDs with a focus on the plant asset rather than the document representation. It exercises rules and connectivity checks to speed the entire engineering process, helping you save money without compromising design quality or integrity. SmartPlant P&ID also facilitates faster project startup because several engineering standards are included with the software.
In addition to engineering phase, the P&ID plays a key role in operational tasks such as safety, inspections, turn-around planning and much more.
