Sometimes things aren't easy - especially with process design

Experience the power of intelligent P&ID software with M4 P&ID FX

(PresseBox) ( Cambridge, UK / Pittsford, NY, )
One of the key tasks in process engineering design is the creation of Piping & Instrumentation Diagrams (P&IDs) to document processes. With simple graphics-only P&ID systems there is a limit to the amount of information that can be represented on a diagram. This in turn limits the usefulness of the diagram to support downstream tasks. Therefore a key challenge for designers is the collection and management of design data associated with the process. 

Attributes – the key to intelligence

A powerful feature of the M4 P&ID FX software is the use of attributes to capture non-graphical design data. This results in highly intelligent diagrams that contain a wealth of hidden information compared to regular graphics-only P&ID systems. The P&IDs produced are not merely graphical representations, they are also a rich source of analyzable design data that can be used to support downstream tasks such as parts listing, cost analysis and procurement.

Hidden detail 

Attributes are invisible and can be applied to individual components, pipes and instruments. They can be queried and edited as often as required. The system caters for attributes that can be set to user-specified values, as well as attributes that are constrained to pre-defined lists of acceptable values. When a design is complete, attributes can be automatically output to parts lists or customizable reports.

The power of attributes

M4 P&ID FX fully exploits the power of attributes to capture your design data via a simple user interface is. The system is optimized specifically for the task of P&ID design and enables you to represent your processes graphically while embedding your detailed design data within the P&ID.
