You are looking for a database driven pipe spec P&ID solution for an affordable price. Try the stand alone software and compare it with other P&ID software here http://www.smap3d.com/Piping/en/contact-trial-version.html
In this case you don't have dumb symbol graphics. You can generate list and also export it as a smartPDF, so everyone can get the P&ID with BOMs in one file and on top you can click in the PDF you jump from an Item in the BOM to the right sheet with the symbols etc.
Try and let us know what you think about it!

Best,
Frank

My company is looking for P&ID software. We use Solidworks for design. We'd like to find a great P&ID package! We are a very small company but are willing to invest some dollars for a good program. We want more than just graphics as in plain jane Autocad. I'd rather not have big annual maintenance fees. Any recommendations?

If your company uses AVEVA at all then I would suggest looking into AVEVA PID. It's a little cumbersome at 1st but once you get rolling it keeps up quite well in change management between the model and PID's. As well you can tie in E&I elements.
Reality is a trigger word and we're quickly losing touch...

Thanks for that. Aveva did not come up in my searches so far.

I prefer Autodesk products. 2 years 3 months ago #8955

Just my $0.02 here...I've used 2 different smart P&ID software packages. One was from CATIA and the other was from Autodesk. Both did the job, however I do think the Autodesk program was easier to use and had a much shallower learning curve. So...in my admittedly biased opinion, go with the AutoCAD Plant 3D package...it has the smart P&ID capabilities and the ability to transfer information to the 3D and BOM. The only drawback is writing the project.xml file. That I don't know how to do, so you'd have to find someone who could...
