A Process is a sequence of actions over a plant with a desired final result. In AseptSoft each Process can be created as a sequence of Phases. Each Process will span over all the P&IDs that the parent Module includes.
Classical examples of processes are CIP (Cleaning in Place) and SIP (Sterilization in Place).
The list of all processes in a module is visible in the ‘Processes’ window.
Use the right mouse click to Rename, Duplicate or Delete any process. To create a new process use the 'Create new' button at the button, then chose a name for the new process.
A Phase is a step of a Process representing an assignment of States and Percentages over the Engineering Items in the P&ID.
In each phase the assignment is independent of the assignment of any other phase.
A Phase includes a complete Algorithm which will describe when the execution of the Phase is fulfilled and when the execution can proceed to the next Phase.
A Phase belongs to one and only one Process, and it keeps a specific position in the ordering of Phases of that Process. Phases can be added, copied, reordered, renamed and deleted within a process.
To rename a Phase, you need to press the “Alter” or “Rename” button in the Module Ribbon and then type a new name:
