Digital replaces paper

The control and instrumentation (C&I) systems of processing plants generate an almost overwhelming torrent of data, and paper-based documentation no longer has a rational basis. The integration of manufacturer portals into engineering tools now generates significantly more benefits for plant operators.

1 Introduction

Good documentation is essential in modern commercial-scale plants, both during the construction phase as well as during subsequent operation. In the process industry, in particular, plant engineers and operators are confronted with multiple challenges, due to the large number of control and instrumentation (C&I) components installed in the facility and the vast range of documents for every measuring point. Tracking all of the necessary documents up to commissioning is a complex task, and keeping them up to date during on-going operation is no less demanding. As recent as a few...
