Intergraph Supports the ISO 15926 Standard with the Release of SmartPlant P&ID ISO 15926 Export Utility

New commercially available utility offers customers solution configurability.

Intergraph (www.intergraph.com/ppm/iso15926.aspx) is joining the revolution--at least exposing data in a standard way from its system to other systems. The company released today its SmartPlant P&ID ISO 15926 Export Utility, a commercially available solution to support interfaces based on the ISO-based data exchange.

This utility offers data exchange benefits between the process design schematics and the 3D physical design for engineering companies, as well as facility owners. This allows piping and instrumentation diagrams (P&IDs) to be exported in the ISO 15926 format, which means data as well as graphical content can be exchanged with other ISO-compliant plant design and information management solutions. Intergraph worked with longtime customers to develop an explicit value proposition and technical requirements used to guide the development of the SmartPlant P&ID ISO 15926 Export Utility.

“The release of the SmartPlant P&ID ISO 15926 Export Utility is another step that demonstrates Intergraph’s continued commitment to satisfy client demand for openness and interoperability,” said Patrick Holcomb, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine’s executive vice president of global business development and marketing.

Holcomb cites this as another in a long line of Intergraph efforts to support open data exchange between its industry-leading solutions, and other plant design solutions developed by other technology providers. This new capability will be further discussed during the Fiatech Annual Technology Conference & Showcase in Miami.

SmartPlant P&ID is the No. 1 asset-centric, rule-driven P&ID solution in the global market and has created more than 500,000 P&IDs for plants from around the world. It helps users to develop and manage their facilities using SP P&IDs with a focus on the plant asset rather than the documentation representation. This accurately reflects the as-built plant for enhanced safety, quality, efficiency and productivity.
