ISO 15926 in Action: Production Grade Exchange of P&ID Drawings
Collapse Expand


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 the first part of this class, product and sales development illustrate challenges and opportunities of implementing a generic standard for use with industry data and workflows. In the second part, Bayer AG and Autodesk review the results of exchanging production-grade P&ID drawings solely based on the DEXPI ISO 15926 specification. Can one use the current ISO 15926 specification to exchange high-quality data for P&ID data?
