DEXPI is the German industry initiative to support and promote the ISO 15926 standard for plant data transfer, and it has reached a major milestone: the definition of standard specification covering a complete piping and instrumentation diagram (P&ID). Autodesk, Inc., developed a proof-of-concept application for AutoCAD P&ID software to import/export P&ID data fully implementing this DEXPI specification. In this class, we will illustrate challenges and opportunities of implementing a generic standard for use with industry data and workflows, and we’ll try to answer the following questions: Can one use the current ISO 15926 specification to exchange high-quality data for P&ID data? What is the difference between DEXPI and ISO15926 standard? How are these activities related to the IFC and Open BIM Standards? This session features AutoCAD P&ID.
