The following text is taken from the PDRI Element descriptions (NL-WI-Q-004-F1).

At the
start of a project phase it needs to be determined which details are required to be available at the
end of the project phase.


In general, P&ID’s are considered to be a critical element within the scope definition
package of an industrial project. Since incomplete information on P&ID’s is frequently
identified as a source of project escalation, it is important to understand their level of
completeness. It often requires several iterations, or passes, to obtain all of the
necessary information from each discipline specialist.
During each iteration, additional information is added to the P&ID’s. Thus, it is unlikely
for P&ID’s to be completely defined in a project’s scope definition package. It is
important, however, to assess which iterations have occurred to date as well as the
items that have been defined or are currently being developed.

The following list can be used as an aid in evaluating the current state of development of
the P&ID’s:

Number of items;
Name of items;
Type or configuration;
Spare item requirements;
Data on & sizing of equipment / drive mechanisms;
Horsepower / energy consumption;
Nozzle sizes;
Insulation / tracing;
Vendor data (if vendor designed);
Seal arrangements (as required);
Packaged equipment details.

Line sizes;
Line specifications;
Flow arrows and continuations;
Secondary flows;
Specification breaks;
Insulation and tracing;

Bypasses, blocks and bleeds;
Drains, vents, freeze protection, etc;
Type of valve designated;
Non-line sized valves indicated;

Elements, loops and functions;
Primary elements;
Local panel or control house location;
Control panel or Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) location;

Hard wired interlocks;
Motor controls (needs schematics);
Type of primary elements;
Instrument numbers;
Uniform logic control details;
Indicator lights;
Instrumentation design details (as necessary).

Process Safety Management Hazard Analysis review;
Key process relief valves;
Remaining relief valves;
Failure mode of control valves;
Car sealed valves (as necessary);
Relief valve sizes (instrumentation / process check);
Relief system line sizes;
System design details (as necessary).

Identification of sloped lines;
Barometric legs (seals);
Critical elevations and dimensions;
Vendor or designer supplied notes;
Critical locations (valves, etc);
Notes on venting or draining;
Vessel trim notes;
Startup and shutdown notes;
Design detail notes (as necessary).
