Flow process chart

Flow process chart is used in quality control to display the action sequence of physical or manual process.
Flow process chart is useful for recording actions and documenting the production process.
Flow process chart helps to analyze and improve the process steps.
Flow process chart is more preferable than flowchart for documenting the mostly sequential processes.
Three types of flow process charts include: 1) man-type charts depicting the person actions, 2) material-type charts displaying the actions with product or material object, 3) equipment-type charts visualizing the useage of tools and equipment.
The set of symbols used in the flow process charts was developed by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME).
This flow process chart example was created using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software extended with the Matrices solution from the Marketing area of ConceptDraw Solution Park. Read more

"An oil refinery or petroleum refinery is an industrial process plant where crude oil is processed and refined into more useful products such as petroleum naphtha, gasoline, diesel fuel, asphalt base, heating oil, kerosene and liquefied petroleum gas. Oil refineries are typically large, sprawling industrial complexes with extensive piping running throughout, carrying streams of fluids between large chemical processing units. In many ways, oil refineries use much of the technology of, and can be thought of, as types of chemical plants. The crude oil feedstock has typically been processed by an oil production plant. There is usually an oil depot (tank farm) at or near an oil refinery for the storage of incoming crude oil feedstock as well as bulk liquid products.
An oil refinery is considered an essential part of the midstream side of the petroleum industry." [en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oil_refinery]

How to Determine what Information to be Displayed in the Project Resource List

After you create a project task list it is necessary move to resource planning. You need to determine and assign resources on each task. There are several types of resources defined in ConceptDraw PROJECT: work, material, cost and equipment. The columns of a project Resource List in ConceptDraw PROJECT displays the information you need to capture about each resource in your project. Read more

This PFD sample was redesigned from the Wikipedia file: NaturalGasCondensate.png.
"This is a schematic flow diagram of a typical facility for separating and recovering liquid condensate from raw natural gas."
[en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:NaturalGasCondensate.png]
"Natural-gas condensate is a low-density mixture of hydrocarbon liquids that are present as gaseous components in the raw natural gas produced from many natural gas fields. It condenses out of the raw gas if the temperature is reduced to below the hydrocarbon dew point temperature of the raw gas.
The natural gas condensate is also referred to as simply condensate, or gas condensate, or sometimes natural gasoline because it contains hydrocarbons within the gasoline boiling range. Raw natural gas may come from any one of three types of gas wells:
(1) Crude oil wells - Raw natural gas that comes from crude oil wells is called associated gas. This gas can exist separate from the crude oil in the underground formation, or dissolved in the crude oil.
(2) Dry gas wells - These wells typically produce only raw natural gas that does not contain any hydrocarbon liquids. Such gas is called non-associated gas.
(3) Condensate wells - These wells produce raw natural gas along with natural gas liquid. Such gas is also non-associated gas and often referred to as wet gas." [Natural-gas condensate. Wikipedia]

How to Resize Objects in ConceptDraw PRO

When creating diagram using ConceptDraw PRO, you can select, move, resize and rotate objects. After selecting an object (or objects) in a document, you can change it position, resize it or move an object to the desired position. The sizes of objects in ConceptDraw PRO can be changed by simple dragging, or you can set a particular size of any object. Using ConceptDraw PRO, you can re-size an object on the page using the absolute measurements instead of a mouse. You can make quick work of designing complex drawing using a combination of different-sized items. Read more
