  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
Learn about COMOS P&ID basic functions and benefits. With the application example you go through a complete standard workflow to represent process engineering, pipeline engineering as well as measurement, instrumentation & control (I&C) sequences.

Objective of this COMOS P&ID application example
This application example is a best practice example and shows you the basic functions and operating instructions for the COMOS P&ID software solution.
COMOS P&ID is used primarily in the following phases of plant engineering:

  • Basic engineering
  • Detail engineering

These planning phases include a variety of requirements to improve the conventional process, save time, reduce costs and conserve resources.
The following requirements should be fulfilled:

  • One-time entry and reuse of data by means of centralized data management and standardized interfaces to external data sources or applications. The aim is to ensure consistency across all disciplines.
  • Full integration of all disciplines involved in the planning of the plant engineering.
  • Traceability of changes across discipline boundaries.
  • A uniform database from the first process design right through to plant operations.
  • Recognizing, documenting, reviewing, and releasing data changes.

This application example gives you initial insights on how the software solution COMOS and in particular
COMOS P&ID fulfill the requirements listed here.
It also explains the benefits of the software.
