Best Practice in Process, Electrical & Instrumentation Drawings and Documentation

THE WORKSHOP

This workshop is designed for engineers and technicians from a wide range of abilities and backgrounds and will provide an excellent introduction to mastering plant documentation and diagrams, covers the flow of documentation from design through manufacture to maintenance and operations. The course looks at the applications of each diagram type detailing where and when the document should be used.

During the life span of any plant, a multitude of different vendors will supply plant modifications and equipment as the plant is continuously enhanced. The quality of the documentation produced will vary enormously with each new supplier. You will be given the skills to apply a standardised internationally acceptable set of standards to your plant documentation.
