The Planning Guide to Piping Design covers the entire process of planning a plant model project from conceptual to mechanical completion and explains where the piping engineering lead (PEL) operates in the process along with his roles and responsibilities.
In the past, piping engineering leads used to receive only on-the-job training to learn the operation of producing a process plant. Over time though, more schools have developed advanced curriculum for piping engineers and designers. Newer generations are coming into the profession with a more technological view of piping design and need a handbook that explains proven methods for planning and monitoring piping design in step-by-step processes.
This essential handbook covers:
- Plot plans, key plans, and other deliverables
- Detailed design, including construction work packages, model boundaries, modularization, CAD support, and model reviews
- Fabrication, including scopes of work, spool fabrication, and new tools for automatic spool sheet generation of pipe spool drawings
- Construction, including support, punch lists, requests for information, as-builts, and safety
