With the growing complexity of industrial plant, there is a need for computer-based tools which integrate different design activities, such as domain description and administration, advanced layout techniques, and evaluation of a layout topology. This paper presents such a tool for use in the area of safety assessment. This tool enables the user to describe generic domain knowledge, to use this knowledge to design a specific plant layout, and to carry out a preliminary risk analysis of the resultant plant design.
