An information model for plant construction and mechanical engineering (and others)

The PI-Mod in­for­ma­tion mod­el was de­vel­oped in 2008 in col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween sev­er­al com­pa­nies. It is in­tend­ed to cov­er the main se­man­tic in­for­ma­tion struc­tures for us­er and ser­vice doc­u­men­ta­tion. The main in­dus­try that will use this in­for­ma­tion mod­el is plant con­struc­tion and me­chan­i­cal en­gi­neer­ing, along with its con­nect­ed in­dus­tries (such as the au­to­ma­tion and elec­tron­ics in­dus­try or con­sumer prod­ucts).

The in­for­ma­tion mod­el pro­vides an en­try struc­ture that al­lows in­for­ma­tion to be re­cord­ed in mo­d­u­lar fashion. It is as im­ple­men­ta­tion-in­de­pen­dent as pos­si­ble in or­der to al­low easy in­te­gra­tion in con­tent ma­n­age­ment sys­tems (CMS). PI-Mod can be used free of charge and is on­ly sub­ject to an open source li­cence.

Style checks in the PI-Mod standard information model

XML may be wide­spread as a da­ta for­mat, but the stan­dardi­s­a­tion of in­for­ma­tion mod­els them­selves is far from uni­ver­sal – with the ex­cep­tion of spe­cif­ic in­dus­tries. PI-Mod is a stan­dardised in­for­ma­tion mod­el that has been in use in the me­chan­i­cal en­gi­neer­ing and plant con­struc­tion in­dus­try for sev­er­al years.
