1 Scope

1.1 Introduction

This Saudi Aramco Engineering Procedure (SAEP) provides instructions for the
development and approval of an Integration Specification Document (PAS-ISD)
for all Integrated Process Automation System. The PAS-ISD must be developed
during the integration of the PAS and is expected as a deliverable with the 602
NMRs. The PAS integrator shall utilize the opportunity of all PAS sub-systems
being together in one location for FAT and immediately conduct the IFAT
afterwards.

1.2 Definition

The PAS-ISD is a document prepared by the PAS integrator that provides the
technical specifications for the different systems and sub-systems including
hardware, applications, data and communications interfaces. The PAS
integrator shall while preparing the PAS-ISD considers the project and other
Company requirements. The PAS-ISD is only required if the project includes an
Integrated Process Automation System (IPAS).

The IPAS is a system with two or more Process Automation Systems (PAS)
linked via a common backbone or a wide-area network. Examples of IPAS are
DCS/PMIS, SCADA/PMIS, and DCS/SCADA. Systems connected by serial
interfaces do not fall under the category of IPAS.

1.3 Purpose

The PAS-ISD shall constitute the basis for the design of an Integrated Process
Automation System (IPAS).

1.4 Timing

The PAS-ISD is part of the 602 and 603 series of NMRs (Non-Material
Requirements) as described in SAEP-16. It is required that this document be
approved by Saudi Aramco prior to any detailed design of the IPAS.

It shall be issued prior to mechanical completion as an “as-built” document as a


key reference for system and control engineers. It shall provide accurate and
sufficient detail as the key document for future modifications and expansions.

1.5 Applicability

An PAS-ISD is required for all projects defined as in 1.2 and governed by


SAEP-16.
