Plant lifecycle management


Plant lifecycle management

Plant Lifecycle Management (PLM) differ from Product lifecycle management, by focusing to rise integration between the Logically, Physical and Technical data part of the plant model.

The PLM model could be used through the plants whole lifecycle, covering:
*Design,
*Construction,
*Erection,
*Commissioning,
*Operation,
*Maintenance.

Parts of the model

Logical model:

The logical diagram or schematic could be for:
*Process & instrumentation diagrams (P&ID)
*Pipe & instrumentation diagrams (P&ID)
*P&I schematic
*Process flow
*Massflow diagram (similar to the process flow but used in the mineral industry)
*Electrical key diagram
*Cabling diagram
*Interlocking diagram
*Electrical
*Hydraulic
*Pneumatic
*Heating venting & air-conditioning (HVAC)
*Water and wastewater

Physical model:

The physical part is normally handled by a 3D CAD model.The CAD system used would typically focus on top-down, routing, and DMU and would differ on many point from the systems used in the mechanical industry, or for Architectural engineering.Sometimes the CAD system would be supplemented by software to generate 3D views or walk-through features.

Technical model:

The technical data is typical an ERP system or other database, there could also be links to systems for handling unstructured data, like EDM systems.
