Process Documentation

Process documentation is a key early stage process-engineering function that is essential to a quality project outcome. P&ID and PFD provide the design basis on which the rest of the project relies. Other documentation is often created from these two most basic documents. The information in these documents is used for many purposes, including but not limited to:

  • Client/engineer agreement on project scope
  • Initial cost estimation
  • Gap analysis, infrastructure requirements
  • Process-hazard assessment
  • Equipment specifications
  • Instrument specifications
  • Piping specifications, including sizing
  • Development of control strategy and the functional specification
