How to setup and create P&IDs for downstream success
Just as databases have become part of our everyday lives, it also seems that the promise of intelligent P&IDs has been part of our conversation for at least a generation. Yet to this day intelligent P&IDs seem to mean little more than tagged blocks and the ability to output valve and instrument lists. During this session you will learn how easy it is to setup project databases to create truly intelligent P&IDs. You will discover how this intelligence allows you to run reports, link important project information, and attach design and engineering deliverables to P&ID components, for retrieval throughout the project and plant lifecycles.

Instrumentation and P&IDs: Effective sharing and information reuse 
Control system engineering handles a large amount of data and deliverables. Consistently creating the index, specification, wiring, and documentation are some of the most time-consuming and error-prone tasks. CADWorx E&I delivers unique capabilities to cover the complete control system task and support all phases of the life cycle from within a single environment. Learn how integration with automation vendors helps you engineer and design systems that are exactly tailored to project requirements and deliver cost effective solutions. Also learn how both instrumentation and piping can be linked to provide unprecedented collaboration with downstream benefits.

A data-centric approach to generating quality electrical deliverables 
Electrical design is a critical task in the entire design process but traditionally is performed at the tail end of the project schedule, when all the final electrical data and loads are known. This pots added pressure to get the job done quickly and correctly. Learn how a unique data-centric approach to electrical engineering and design delivers accurate deliverables quickly, efficiently and with the least reinterpretation of data. See how designs associated to your project loads can be created quickly and easily created with high quality and consistency, followed by automatic creation of all the electrical design deliverables.
Tools for publishing and sharing electrical and instrumentation information
Creating electrical and instrumentation deliverables can be a laborious and time consuming process. The challenge is in the multiple information interdependencies that exist in in the E&I process. See how a data-centric approach to the problem of creating accurate deliverables brings real-world benefits to creating deliverables that exactly mirror the components that make up a project, and its many interdependencies. Learn how having an integrated I&E solution makes deliverables creation a simpler task to roll out to the enterprise.
