Intelligent P&ID and 3D Interoperability – Industry Feedback Requested

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.

The deliverables will be discussed at next week’s Fiatech Member Meeting in Boulder, CO. Please send your comments to IIMM Project Lead Adrian Laud (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) by October 25 on the following:

  • ISO 15926 P&ID Information Model Overview – The engineering information documenting the information model for P&ID (including extensions identified since 2009). Note that a similar document on 3D models is in works, but is not yet available.
  • ISO 15926 P&ID Profile Template Specification – Specifications for class and template definitions (geometric and non-geometric) required for P&ID scope. New classes and templates have been submitted to PCA RDS (Reference Data Services).
  • ISO 15926 P&ID Profile Schema Specification – Specifications for revised XML schema elements and attributes defined in ISO 15926 P&ID Information Model overview.
  • Proteus Schema 3.6.0 – The schema contains all the 3D objects as well as those for P&ID. The P&ID Profile Schema contains only those definitions relevant to P&ID and also contains additional constraints. A valid XML for P&ID will validate against either schema. Following the closing date, the schema will be published as the official release for version 3.6.0, enabling companies using version 3.3.3 to upgrade.

The deliverables will resolve the issues raised by industry projects {Oil and Gas Interoperability (OGI) Pilot and Data Exchange with ISO 15926 (DEXPI)} and commercial deployments. These deliverables will reduce the major costs and time delays incurred in the current manual, non-interoperable data and handover exchange processes.
