Challenges throughout the complete lifecycle of the plant
Global competition, shorter innovation cycles, tighter regulations regarding safety
and environmental protection and the growing demand for individual products
present enormous challenges to plant designers and operators.
The lifecycle of a plant can be divided into different phases:
 Process design
 Basic and detail engineering
 Commissioning and installation
 Operation and maintenance
 Modernization.
 Siemens AG 2016 All rights reserved

Plant engineering process: From initial process design right through to the operating phase

In the plant design phases there is a number of interdependent planning steps,


which involve the most varied specialist disciplines. These range from process
technology, plant engineering, electrical-, instrumentation-, automation and control
technology, right through to software development. Each of these disciplines
employs different methods and tools.
The process frequently progresses in different planning stages one after another
(serially). The involved parties each edit the engineering data in the format required
for their own work and with the intended software solutions. Then the data and
documents are passed on to the subsequent process step.
Thus there is a number of different data formats and interfaces.
This frequently leads to transmission errors, system discontinuities and
inconsistencies and consequently to increased costs and expenditure of time and
resources.
There is also the risk that errors are not even recognized at all, which then need
to be corrected later on during commissioning at great expense and time efforts.

COMOS P&ID using a practical example


Entry ID: 109480739, V1.0, 07/2016 5
1 Task

The possibilities for parallelizing the process by further development of the data
interfaces between the systems are largely exhausted.

Current serial process during plant engineering

Another challenge when operating the plant is to keep the plant documentation
always up to date so that it always corresponds to the current state of the plant.

Objective of this COMOS P&ID application example


This application example is a best practice example and shows you the basic
functions and operating instructions for the COMOS P&ID software solution.
COMOS P&ID is used primarily in the following phases of plant engineering:
 Basic engineering
 Detail engineering

These planning phases include a variety of requirements to improve the


conventional process, save time, reduce costs and conserve resources.
The following requirements should be fulfilled:
 One-time entry and reuse of data by means of centralized data management
and standardized interfaces to external data sources or applications. The aim
is to ensure consistency across all disciplines.
 Full integration of all disciplines involved in the planning of the plant
engineering.
 Traceability of changes across discipline boundaries.
 A uniform database from the first process design right through to plant
operations.
 Recognizing, documenting, reviewing, and releasing data changes.

This application example gives you initial insights on how the software solution
COMOS and in particular
COMOS P&ID fulfill the requirements listed here.
It also explains the benefits of the software.
You can find basic information on COMOS and the product COMOS P&ID in
Chapter 3 "Basics".

2.3 Alternative workflows


In addition to the above-mentioned linear procedure examples, even more input
sources and further uses of a COMOS P&ID are supported. When no simulation
and no PFD (Process Flow Diagram) are provided by default for the Piping and
Instrumentation Diagram (P&ID),
 it is possible to import a P&ID, e.g. from AUTOCAD (DWG/DXF), Microstation
(DGN) or ISO 15926 compatible Proteus XML files (formerly XMpLant) or from
PDS 2D.
 it is possible to import objects (equipment and piping) and their data (attribute
values) without graphic information, e.g. from Excel lists (XLS/XLSX) or XML.
 it is also possible to reuse complete P&IDs of parts (also called assembly
templates) from previously engineered COMOS projects by copying them –
possibly with an intelligent modular design (with the so-called Engineering
Tasks, formerly eBlocks).
 or create a new P&ID from scratch.

3.1 COMOS – General overview
With its unified data platform the integrated software solution COMOS provides
plant design engineers, plant operating personnel, company management, and
solution partners with a continuous flow of data that meet their specific needs
across all project phases.
One requirement for effective plant management is optimum networking and
coordination of all disciplines and departments involved in the engineering and
operation of a plant. The software solution COMOS is the basis for the cooperation
of worldwide collaboration across the entire lifecycle of a plant.
The integrated COMOS software concept is based on object orientation.
Components are described holistically and displayed graphically in their true-to-life
representation. The graphical and data-related description, which includes all data
associated with the component, forms a single unit within the database – the
object. Related data sheets, lists, and other documents are linked to the
corresponding objects.

3.1 COMOS – General overview

The complete plant information is stored in a central database. As a result,


COMOS allows all disciplines and departments involved in the engineering and
operating phases to always access the same data for a given object. Objects can
be processed in COMOS bidirectional on data sheets as well as in technical
drawings. This means that changes to objects or documents are always available
to every user worldwide, whatever the time zone, and that they are up-to-date and
consistent. The entire plant, right down to the individual components, can be
examined and further developed from a functional and interdisciplinary perspective.
The common data management enables COMOS to perform pooling of data in
parallel working processes and workflows.

3.2 COMOS P&ID


General information
COMOS P&ID is a solution that allows you to create piping and instrumentation
diagrams by means of its integrated intelligent symbol technology.
You can represent process engineering, pipeline engineering as well as
measurement, instrumentation & control (I&C) sequences.
COMOS P&ID provides comprehensive object libraries. A corresponding object
is stored in the object library for each symbol in the P&ID in accordance with
international standards. The P&ID automatically detects which connection parts are
required and inserts them according to the correct flow direction. You do not have
to check for correctness.
Thanks to the creation of module libraries and the reuse of plant components or
sub-units created with these libraries, it is possible to achieve significant savings
in valuable engineering time. COMOS P&ID also enables reliable revision
management. All revisions can be stored, documented and viewed at a later time.
COMOS P&ID features an optimum connection to other COMOS solution for basic
and detail engineering as well as plant operation. The use of the uniform database
in COMOS facilitates a consistent flow of data across all disciplines and trades.

Defining the revision options


Revision monitoring checks evaluating reports and interactive reports to see if
information relating to COMOS objects has changed (see chapter 4.7 "Revisions").
The revision monitoring does not include external documents.
Revision monitoring does not capture purely graphical elements, which the user
manually draws on the report, such as lines and circles.
The selected report comparison method determines which objects are exactly
monitored by the revision monitoring:
 For timestamp-based comparison, the time stamp is monitored for all COMOS-
based objects and texts.
 In content-based comparison, the contents are monitored for texts and the time
stamp is monitored for the other COMOS-based objects.

1. In the next step, select the "Revision options" category.


2. Under the "Monitoring" section, enable revision monitoring. Do this by clicking
the option button:
"(1) Create revision upon changes (generate *revision)".
3. Click the drop-down list of the "Basis of comparison" field to open it and click

A revision archive is a printer driver for revision files. When a revision is


completed, the document is printed to a file
(see Chapter 4.7 "Revisions"). These print files are summed up in the revision
archive. So, the selection of a printer driver is synonymous with the format in
which the revisions are to be archived.
 In the project properties, the pre-configured printer interfaces are displayed
even if the printer drivers have not been installed.
 Set the printer drivers in such a way that you get access to the print
settings of the printer driver from within COMOS. Otherwise, you get an
alarm message upon concluding a revision.

4. Open the drop-down list in the "Settings" directory.


5. For this application example, select a preinstalled revision printer, e.g.,
"PDF Factory (from v. 1.5x)".
The "Redlining" function can be used for this revision archive.
6. Then enable the show "revision with redlining" option button under the
"redlining" section.

This option is required for you to carry out a redlining in the revision documents
and to display it in the corresponding report.
If you display the PDF revision files with Redlining, you can insert markings
 Siemens AG 2016 All rights reserved

and comments. They are stored in a separate Redlining file. The revision file
is not changed. The markings and comments are shown in the work area of
the open report (see chapter 4.7.2 "Redlining based on the example of a
document-spanning interconnection").

4.4 Updating connected components and pipe sections


This chapter explains how to update equipment in the P&ID.
You can take over the data from the previous steps (e.g. COMOS FEED Phase).
For this application example, apply the specification data from the process flow
diagram of the process unit "Reaction 02" into the P&ID.
This is also known as vertical data flow.
If you change the properties of a pipe section in the P&ID, it is also possible to
update the connected components. This also applies if you change the properties
of a valve, pumps or reducer. As a result, the properties of the pipe section and the
connected components are also updated. This process is called horizontal
data flow.

4.4.1 Vertical data flow

This section describes how vertical data flow works.


For this application example, apply the specification data of the process stream
"KONZ-1" from the FEED phase for the pipe "Q006" in the P&ID diagram.

1. To do this, open the P&ID diagram of the subunit "Reaction 02" by double-
clicking it.

4.6 Creating templates


This chapter describes how to create a template and insert it in your project.
A template is a group of logically or physically related objects that can be reused.
This can be provided as a template (also known as an assembly).
You can derive any number of uses (assemblies) from templates in an engineering
object. When you paste a template, all objects belonging to it are created and
configured automatically as defined in the template.
In this example project, you will create a template of the reactor and all associated
objects. You will also implement the template you created in the example project.
The following section gives you a detailed description on how to do this.

Procedure
1. Open the P&ID diagram of the subunit "Reaction 2" by double-clicking it.
2. Select the reactor and the associated objects as shown in the following figure.
To do this, hold down the "Ctrl" button and click the corresponding object with
the left mouse button.

4.7 Revisions
This chapter shows you how to carry out a revision of your documents in COMOS
and what benefit this has on your system planning.
You can use revisions to check and save the editing statuses of documents.
The result is a revision file which permanently documents the working version
of a document. You can print it out, archive it, and compare it to other revision
statuses.
In the application example you should carry out a revision for the P&ID diagram
of the unit "Reaction 02". During the revision process, you also carry out "redlining"
in the revision document and extend the process flow diagram.
The following description highlights the advantages gained from the revision
function of COMOS.

Note To carry out the steps in this chapter you require basic project settings
(see chapter 4.2.2 "Basic COMOS project settings").

you can also edit it and extend it according to your needs.
The following manual gives you a detailed description on how to do this:
"COMOS Platform Getting Started", Chapter 11 "Base objects per toolbar"
For information on further helpful articles and links,
refer to chapter 6 "Further information" in this document.
 Siemens AG 2016 All rights reserved

2. Move the cursor to the pipe position where you wish to place the measurement
function.
Position the cursor in such a way that the lower connector point touches the
pipe.
If the symbol does not have any predefined connector points, place the
function and connect it subsequently with the "Connection" tool.

3. Pause briefly and then move the cursor from the pipe upwards.
The function docks automatically to the pipe and a measuring line is drawn
in between the pipe and the function.

Figure 4-226
 Siemens AG 2016 All rights reserved

Note If a function was docked in the wrong position during placement, move the cursor
out of the drawing area and then back in again. The function moves again over
the P&ID, together with the cursor.

4. Left-click with the mouse to place the function.


This also places an inline device in the pipe automatically.

Note The function is created in the engineering data in accordance with the
configuration set by the administrator:
 If all P&ID objects should be sorted according to category in parallel with your P&ID,
the function is created in the "A50 I&C (Instrumentation & Control)" folder under an
undefined position.
 If all P&ID objects are supposed to be compiled under the P&ID, the function is
created directly underneath the P&ID.

4.10.4 Connecting functions via references

This section describes how to connect two functions by means of a reference.


If you have a P&ID with many connections, you can use this function to break
connections and therefore achieve a clearer representation.
In this application example, the measurement function of the flow rate
measurement is connected to the actuating function of the control valve by means
of a reference.

Procedure
1. Use the "Connection" tool to create a signal line on the right connector
point of the measurement function.
2. Also create a signal line on the left connector point of the actuating function.

Figure 4-240
 Siemens AG 2016 All rights reserved

4.10.5 Pipe labels related to the pipe spec (spec break labels)

A pipe label is shown if objects are connected with each other whose pipe spec-
related attributes do not have the same values, e.g. pipe spec, nominal diameter
and nominal pressure.
In the application example, the nominal size and the nominal pressure of a pipe
are changed in order to trigger a pipe label on the control valve.
It contains a text showing which attributes vary between connected objects.
When you update the values, even the entry in the pipe label is updated.

5 Conclusion

5 Conclusion
Thanks to this application example you have gained insight into the basic functions
and operating instructions of COMOS P&ID.
Further possibilities for efficiency improvement can be achieved by integrating the
areas of EI&C technology, pipe spec design and pipe spec management,
isometrics or 3D integration, as well as in subsequent plant operation thanks to
consistent data management in COMOS. The open system architecture also offers
the export of COMOS data to external formats or the import of data from external
applications, such as:
 AUTOCAD DWG/DXF
 ISO 15926 compatible Proteus-XML (formerly XMpLant)
 Excel lists and data sheets (XLS/XLSX).
 Export of P&ID data to SIMIT
 Interface to Open Plant 3D
