Manufacturing – Instrument Index
I had a nice conversation with Ramya Saroja Kandula regarding the importance of developing an instrument index.
Ramya shared some interesting insight, “An instrument index is a document containing the list of devices within the facility. It is created at the beginning of the project and is considered to be a live document which is populated and updated even after the facility is constructed and running.”
Ramya continued, “Specifically, the index includes details about the instrument’s identifier, its type, operating range, set points, P&ID number, service description, procurement details and other important information and it shall be revised as and when there is a plant or system modification. It is a detailed engineering deliverable developed by the instrumentation and controls discipline.”
Details are important in manufacturing and an Instrument Index certainly helps keep things in order in the facility!
