This case study uses Innoslate to take a Model-Based Systems Engineering approach to the American Society of Mechanical Engineers’ (ASME) Plant Systems Design System.
“Generally, ASME standards are not system-based. Ralph Hill took the lead in developing the first systems-based standard for plant systems design. Mr. Hill has been volunteering at ASME for 45 years. ASME develops standards and guidance documents for the design, construction, and operation of plants and facilities to ensure safety and quality. However, Mr. Hill recognized a missing element in the system. There are no standards addressing design activities that produce the design and construction specifications, which provide the basis for design and construction addressed by ASME standards. Each design and engineering organization has its own internal procedures, but there is no standard to provide a benchmark to provide assurance of accuracy and quality.”
