Using the Process Engineering Templates

Each process engineering template is really a set of stencils and shapes for creating piping and instrumentation diagrams (P&IDs) and process flow diagrams (PFDs). Unlike the other engineering diagram types mentioned in this chapter, P&IDs and PFDs can represent a true model of your system. Not only can you create a diagram that represents your system, shapes in the diagram can store physical specifications about components, such as line and valve sizes as well as manufacturing data such as model numbers. Visio 2007 organizes related diagrams and components into a cohesive model and displays windows unique to this drawing type for organizing model information.
