Clough Selects Intergraph® SmartPlant® P&ID Engineering Integrity

HUNTSVILLE, Ala., March 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Clough, an engineering and project services company with headquarters in Perth, Western Australia, has selected Intergraph ® SmartPlant ® P&ID Engineering Integrity to boost safety, quality and productivity in design. This unique solution will enable Clough to automate many manual validations of piping and instrumentation diagrams (P&IDs) against best practice engineering rules, safety practices and client-specific standards for improved design quality.

Clough is a longtime customer of Intergraph and is an experienced user of SmartPlant Enterprise solutions, such as SmartPlant 3D, SmartPlant Review, SmartPlant Foundation, SmartPlant Materials, SmartPlant Instrumentation, SmartPlant P&ID, as well as Intergraph CADWorx ® & Analysis products such as CAESAR II ® and TANK™. To further enhance automation and expand its capabilities, the engineering firm sought to establish P&IDs as part of an intelligent process design system and eliminate the manual checking process. Clough determined that SmartPlant P&ID Engineering Integrity was a perfect fit with SmartPlant P&ID and can automate comprehensive design validation against more than 3,000 rules out of the box. The engineering company can also apply its own rules in SmartPlant P&ID Engineering Integrity and set them according to the company's operational process standards. This ensures that Clough's safety and pipe and process engineers can automatically and quickly execute checks against all P&IDs to ensure the design basis is correct before execution, which reduces the risk of late changes and improves design quality.

"We are continuously looking to establish engineering best practices for our work processes, and SmartPlant P&ID Engineering Integrity will help us to eliminate the manual P&ID checking process for significant time and cost savings," said Paul Rushton, general manager of engineering at Clough. "This unique Intergraph solution ensures we maintain high-quality P&IDs, and when handed over to owners, they meet all operational needs of the project. SmartPlant Enterprise solutions have always delivered great value to our projects, and we are fully confident that SmartPlant P&ID Engineering Integrity will drive continued success."

Gerhard Sallinger, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine president, said, "Our longstanding partnership with Clough continues to grow with the addition of SmartPlant P&ID Engineering Integrity to the Australian company's existing portfolio of Intergraph solutions. SmartPlant P&ID Engineering Integrity enables Clough and all other engineering companies around the world to leverage intelligent P&ID capabilities, delivering tremendous value to owner operators when handing over engineering deliverables for enhanced safety, quality and productivity of projects across industries."

SmartPlant P&ID is the No. 1 asset-centric, rule-driven P&ID solution in the global market and has created more than 200,000 P&IDs for plants from around the world. It helps users to develop and manage their P&IDs with a focus on the plant asset rather than the documentation representation, driving tasks such as 3D design, control systems and others. The rules engine of SmartPlant P&ID Engineering Integrity will check P&IDs against safety and engineering practices and project standards, and can also be extended with customers' rules on safety or any other engineering checks that are usually done manually. SmartPlant P&ID Engineering Integrity is a powerful solution that helps the user to make the right decisions early in the process, producing significant savings by eliminating manual checking and late changes.
