Our company designs small wastewater treatment plants. Just a few technical people, but we also work with contractors and vendors, sharing drawings including P&IDs. A vendor is pushing us to use ISA standards in our P&IDs, but our controls engineer is also in charge of training and oversight of operators, and prefers more intuitive labels. DOxxx for a dissolved oxygen sensor, PHxxx for a pH sensor, etc. Is there an alternate naming convention that matches this more intuitive style, or would we be completely on our own if we got away from calling a turbidity meter an AIT? As you might guess, none of us have much experience with ISA.
Thanks for your thoughts.
