Dear Experts, i am an process engineer.


I was wondering if you might be able to give me some advice.

I usually do some process revamps/Improvements, involed in plant/unit optimization with process calculations using Aspen Plus/Hysys.


But in some cases, i have to do piping designs and export isometric drawings myself also, so i have a lot of troubles for those because i am a chemical engineer. To be a piping engineer i need a study route, and my questions are:

1.  To do a unit design from process to PFD, PID to piping and isometric drawings, which steps do i need to follow? (Flow chart/ Procedure).

2.  For each above step, which tools/softwares should i use?

3. Which books/Document/Standards shoud i read to get the knowledge (used in practical)? (both of process and mechanical)

4. How about your study route to became a design engineer? (Schedule for Self-training)

5. The standard forms for approval in each  step.

6. The websites for studying?


Thank you so much for you helping.

Best regards.

I don't think self teaching is the solution , you need to get close contact with your peers within your organization . Senior engineers/ managers  will love to transfer their knowledge to young engineers . It's a matter of time.

For sure your company can share with you their standards , rules and other procedures .


About software , you should consider Autocad . In Asia , process engineers are knowledgeable about this software to draw PFD, PIDs ( for small changes) . 


My view.
