Austin, TX, October 4, 2013 — Fiatech and POSC Caesar Association are requesting feedback from industry participants on key intelligent Piping and Instrumentation Diagram (P&ID) and 3D deliverables. To overcome the additional costs and efforts due to the lack of interoperability between software systems today, ISO 15926 (iRING) has become the agreed upon standard to be used for data exchanges within the process plant industry. The ISO 15926 Information Models and Proteus Mappings (IIMM) project and the Geometry Special Interest Group (SIG) deliverables will enable access to intelligent design information during construction and for O&M systems.
