Abstract: Stone & Webster started development in 1985 on a mainframe based computer system that provides the capability to integrate all plant information into a single integrated plant database (IPD). In the context of this system, data is defined as the geometric data that defines the layout of the plant components together with the alphanumeric type data that describes and documents these components. Information is developed in three dimensional graphic format for plant layout. The system can be used in the design and construction of plants, and in the retrofitting, maintenance and operations of existing plants.
