This document specifies the ISO 10303 application protocol (AP) for the exchange of spatial configuration information of process plants. This includes shape characteristics, spatial arrangement characteristics, and design and fabrication information for piping system components, and functional and stream information for piping and HVAC (heating, ventilating, and air conditioning) systems. Also included are shape and spatial arrangement characteristics of other related plant systems that impact the design and layout of piping systems. This document describes the scope and information requirements for AP 227 and provides the Application Activity Model (AAM), Application Reference Model (ARM), and Application Interpreted Model (AIM) for the AP. The document follows the format and clause numbering scheme prescribed for this type of International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standard. The Plant Spatial Configuration Application Protocol, Version 1.1 has been submitted to ISO TC184/SC4 for international review and balloting as an ISO Draft International Standard document.
