Working with P&IDs & PFDs Component Data

> Edraw How-To > Working with P&IDs & PFDs Component Data
Posted by Janice | 01/06/2021
In the Edraw Process Engineering software, you can add data directly to components in the pid diagram - without calling up a separate database or spreadsheet program.

Each component in a diagram has a related datasheet, an electronic form that contains fields of data for the component. For example, the datasheet for an equipment generally specifies the description, material, and manufacturer and model.
