Abstract

This paper proposes a novel method for validating process plant design data using a self-organising machine-learning approach. The method, based on a Hidden Markov Model (HMM), is ideal for embedding within a decision support system for use by engineers that validates tag numbering conventions during the design of a large process facility. Results are presented drawn from a set of 541 artificial tag numbers and show that the HMM's performance is comparable to that of a custom-made design rule checking algorithm. The approach benefits from the increased interoperability resulting from widespread adoption of the ISO 15926 standard in industry.
