“Not long after I started to work in the world of control systems, I identified a tough problem to crack: the lack of communication between the process engineers who define the system parameters, and the control engineers who actually implement and run them. I saw the need to bridge this gap through Process Flow Diagrams (FDF) and Piping and Instrumentation Diagrams (P&ID). I knew more accurate P&ID would result in shorter work times. So when I came across S-88, which presents the right methodologies and a better way to connect between the two worlds—process and control—I realized this was the key to optimally structuring a system. This was my “eureka” moment, and I decided to turn all my professional focus in that direction.
As I dug in deeper, however, I discovered there was a problem with the standard too: When you begin to work with it, it is hard to do so with discrete documents. This software emerged initially as a working tool for me, and later, for the control system engineers to use. This allows us to work in a multi-objective environment, all of whose documents are produced in a specific environment where we can easily see the links between them.” Avi Hadar, Founder
