AVEVA Instrumentation™

Instrumentation and Control systems engineering, design, documentation and management software

AVEVA Instrumentation is a feature-rich suite of Instrumentation and Control engineering software for systems engineering, design and through-life maintenance on all types of ships and industrial plants.

AVEVA Instrumentation’s four integrated program modules support the entire Instrumentation and Control system lifecycle from engineering and design, through installation, maintenance and modification. Select a module to find out more about it.

AVEVA Instrumentation features:

  • An advanced graphical user interface
  • Extensive use of design rules and catalogues
  • Maximum workflow flexibility
  • Extensive multiple language support
  • A common multi-user database
  • Assured data integrity
  • Ease of customisation by users
  • Fully customisable report creation, with change highlighting
  • Interfaces to AVEVA NET and document management systems
  • Work Pack creation

These combine to make it the most productive choice for plant or marine engineering. 

AVEVA Instrumentation may be integrated with AVEVA Plant or AVEVA Marine, or used as a stand-alone application. Systems design data created by an EPC or shipyard may be easily adopted and maintained by the plant or vessel owner.

This enables index data entry, change tracking, and the creation and management of documentation. Features include:

KKS and ECS tagging support

  • Includes pull-down lists of values

  • Familiar spreadsheet functions
  • Robust, auditable revision control

Instrument List

  • Create and maintain list data
  • Data import from Excel and P&IDs

Instrument calculations

  • Flow Element Sizing
  • Control Valve Sizing
  • Relief Valve Sizing
  • Thermowell Vibrations
  • Gas Compressibility Factor

Loop List

  • Easy creation and editing of loops
  • Automatic generation of Wiring Manager data
  • Loop Wiring Check reports in pdf format


  • Extensive user-definable report printing and export

This enables automatic generation and revision of CAD drawings from the database. Features include:
