A P&ID (or engineering flow drawing, EFD) is a type of process engineering drawing that describes all process design aspects of a plant. "Process Design" means all the stuff that makes up a plant, such as instruments, pipes and valves.
The purposes of creating P&IDs are: to indicate the instrument or control devices attached to the process and to present the control system architecture associated with the process.
