SmartPlant® P&ID Design Validation

Intergraph SmartPlant® P&ID Design Validation speeds up the iterative workflow of piping system verification, checking for consistency among the logical and physical piping designs. Design Validation streamlines comparisons between SmartPlant P&ID and:

  • SmartPlant Isometrics (PCFs, PODs)
  • ISOGEN®-generated isometrics/drawings (IDFs, PCFs)*
  • PDMS models (Trans (IDF), Datal)

This rule-driven workflow enables you to compare and verify the P&ID design content, attribution, and topology with the physical design, ensuring they reflect each other. This vital, time-saving, and money-saving solution for today’s EPCs and O/Os helps create and maintain a consistent and standardized engineering data set.

During the verification process, SmartPlant P&ID Design Validation highlights inconsistencies in intuitive graphical views.

For example, a quick comparison between a field-checked isometric may show a topology inconsistency, where a valve exists on the wrong side of a branch in the P&ID. SmartPlant engineering tasks can then be used to update the P&ID so that it reflects the as-built situation.

In a handover scenario, SmartPlant Isometrics could be used to read piping data from virtually any plant design system, bringing it to as-built condition on-site. Design Validation would then allow P&ID data to be checked and updated to create an error-free, synchronized data set for the complete life cycle.

Benefits of using SmartPlant P&ID Design Validation include:

  • Reduced labor by decreasing the number of iterative cycles
  • Increased productivity by making the right design decisions at the right time
  • Prevention of downstream errors due to easy comparison of P&IDs, isometrics, and 3D models at the data and topology levels
  • Increased reliability through rule-driven, intelligent, graphical comparison
  • Improved data accuracy through better resolution of design inconsistencies
  • More accurate material procurement costs and improved schedules through design consistency  
  • Reduced risk in maintenance and modification through a synchronized engineering data set for P&IDs, isometrics, and 3D models
