 Previous P&ID entries: Faster Authoring, Common Libraries


While we continue our look into P&ID designer we take a dive into the Connectivity Validation feature. Now, ultimately this enhancement allows for the creation of accurate diagrams the FIRST time, versus reworking your diagram time and time again.


The capabilities of this validation tool include:

  • Check at time of placement so users have immediate feedback to equipment compatibility
  • Option allows for automatic equipment or pipe stock selection during placement
  • Port checks are made for nominal pipe size (NPS), connection type, discipline and material
  • Compatible connections automatically merge if inline equipment is deleted
  • Inconsistent sizes are warned but can be overridden
