Accurate and well-documented process design is critical to the safe and efficient operation of oil and gas installations and other complex process industries. Both the supply chain and designers profit from intelligent P&IDs
The intelligent P&ID software M4 P&ID FX enables the quick production and editing of P&ID designs through support for automatic placement and orientation of symbols and repair of underlying line geometry
The user interface in M4 P & ID FX is simple and intuitive and offers alongside the usual P&ID and 2D features many options and configurable settings
Advanced P&ID systems such as M4 P&ID FX deliver configurable P&ID parts lists, line and from/to lists during the design process, making it easy to monitor project cost and progress
Create Intelligent P&IDs
M4 P&ID FX is a standalone system for process engineers for creating intelligent piping and instrumentation diagrams (P&IDs). Customisable symbol libraries make it quick and easy to design entire process systems using intelligent lines and symbols.
Ensure Standards-Driven Process Design
M4 P&ID FX provides symbol catalogs in support of the EN ISO, ANSI and ISA standards, which can be extended by individual symbols or by entire symbol catalogs.
Automatically Verify P&IDs for Quality Assurance
M4 P&ID FX provides an integrated consistency checker for design quality assurance and a detailed overview of the components used. Potential mistakes or inconsistencies are flagged up in a separate report, as well as highlighted on the diagram itself.
Ease of Use – Access P&ID Tools
M4 P&ID FX is a user-friendly software system which offers easy-access tool trays, a context-sensitive dashboard, and context-sensitive pop-up menus for intuitive design. CAD Schroer offers also extensive video tutorials, as well as step-by-step, well-structured documentation to get you up to speed quickly.
Productivity – Use P&ID Working Sets
M4 P&ID includes dynamic P&ID as well as 2D drafting tools, allowing you to quickly create, edit and augment process schematics. P&ID working sets are a collection of P&IDs which belong to a single project. This feature gives you fast editing access to all project-related schematics, and a quick overview of your process data.
Control – Configure Your P&ID Software
You can configure your M4 P&ID sheets and sheet headers (e.g. add your logo). Standard colours and line styles can be configured to comply with corporate standards, and sheet background colours are user-configurable. You can edit and add to the symbol catalogs, and create new ones. Parts, line, and from/to lists are also configurable.
Intelligence – Configure Symbol Attributes
M4 P&ID FX schematics contain visible and invisible attributes enabling intelligent design creation and report generation. Attributes are user configurable and feed into automatically produced parts lists, line lists & from/to lists. The design verification tool automatically generates error reports, with issues flagged up directly on the design.
Just-in-Time Project Information – Communicate P&ID Data
The information contained in a P&ID can be verified as well as reported on from the very first symbol in the first schematic, making it easy to efficiently progress projects and quickly get relevant information to stakeholders. All of your P&ID components and their attributes are stored in the schematic for easy retrieval and export for downstream use in other corporate processes.
Standards Compliance – Access P&ID Symbol Catalogs
M4 P&ID FX supports P&ID and drafting standards in respect of sheet size, sheet scale and symbol types. The software provides configurable symbol libraries in support of the EN ISO and ANSI standards. M4 P&ID FX also provides standard data interfaces for easy data exchange with project stakeholders.
Integrated Design – Exchange P&ID Data
M4 P&ID FX offers standard interfaces for integrated data exchange with third party systems. Drawings can be imported or exported via a high quality DXF/DWG interface as PDF, XLS, CSV, RTF or HTML files for downstream use in calculation, financial or ERP systems.
