Part 231 of ISO 10303, "Process Engineering Data:
Process Design and Process Specifications of Major
Equipment," specifies an application protocol (AP) for
the exchange of process engineering and conceptual
design information for process plants. This information
forms the conceptual basis for the specification,
selection, and operation of process plant equipment over
the plant life cycle. This AP supports continuous and
batch processes, process simulations, stream data, unit
operations, conceptual design requirements for major
process equipment, and conceptual process control
strategies. This document specifies the scope and
information requirements for AP 231 and provides the
Application Activity Model (AAM) and Application
Reference Model (ARM) for the AP. The document follows
the format and clause numbering scheme prescribed for
this type of International Organization for
Standardization (ISO) standard. The clauses and annexes
contained in this document are those required by ISO for
Group 1 review and comments.
