Data Exchange for the Process Industry

The objective of the DEXPI initative is to develop and promote a general data exchange standard for the process industry, covering all phases of the lifecycle of a (petro-)chemical plant, ranging from specification of functional requirements to assets in operation. Currently, the focus of the DEXPI initiative is the exchange of Piping and Instrumentation diagrams (P&IDs).

X-Visual supports DEXPI

Our P&ID software PlantEngineer supports the data standard DEXPI. Since 2014 we are an active member of the DEXPI initiative and promote the continuous development of the DEXPI im- and export. In order to improve and develop the data standard, we participate regularly in the DEXPI Hackathon. Software vendors and experts from the industry exchange their experiences. Main goal is to improve the im- and export of P&ID data of different CAE tools.

P&ID – the plant`s birth certificate

The P&ID is the plant’s birth certificate and represents its most valuable components, up to 90% of its total value. The DEXPI unified data exchange format makes it possible to use the right tool for the right task. This game changing innovation ensures easy communication between different departments and contractors and enables the creation of exciting business models.
