Thats a little too extensive to be able to cover properly in an internet forum.  If you haven't already, get a reseller to come in for a demonstration.  Make sure they are aware of your specific requirements (such as importing from Revit, which *all* programs have problems with) so they can tailor the presentation properly.  In addition maintain industry contacts with other users in your area.  There may be other users/companies who would be willing to visit or let you visit for a first-hand non-sales review.

Agreed, these are questions suited for demos and training. They are lengthy How To questions. The answer to all of these would be to contact a reseller and schedule a demo, probably explain that you have some detailed quesitons and they will be able to tailor a demo, or schedule a longer demo with time for indepth Q&A.

I'll help with some answers

 

Q1. How to import files from other softwares like TSI or revit

A1. Not knowing what TSI is, I can't answer that. In regards to Revit, you would export the Revit model to .dwg format, and use that as an XREF against your piping model.

 

Q2. What are the export /Import methods and settings

A2. In regards to what? DWG's or database?


Q3. How to edit existing database depending on project requirement

A3. Not 100% sure on what you're asking here. If the project changes? Project variables? Specs? Models?

 

Q4. P&ID diagram settings and editing

A4. A draftsperson edits and creates P&ID's inside the project.


Q5. How to create equipment model based on project submittals

A5: There are three ways of creating equipment. The first is by using the form provided in the software to create equipment, in which you can export templates. The second is to convert an AutoCAD 3D Model of the part. The third way is to convert an Inventor .adsk file to a piece of equipment.

 

Q6. What is production ISO

A6. An Isometric drawing that goes to a factory to be built. Its a 2d representation of the pipe run from the model, it also contains a Bill of Materials.

 

Q7. How to create and edit shop drawings

A7. Shop drawings of what?

 

Hope this helps.
