KKS is defined as Kraftwerk Kennzeichen System indicating process plant designation system. It is used to identify and classify equipment and components in process plant. Several systems of nomenclature are available. Two methods are widely used. One is the American system and the other is the European system. The European system is known as KKS and its taxonomy is comprehensive. The system provides a convenient method to identify plant equipment and its operation. It also covers the buildings and structures, thereby providing comprehensive identification within the system. The number allocated by the KKS system to equipment is broken down into a number of levels. There is a field or set of fields within each level and each field occupies a letter or a number according to a convention. It is shown how the KSS identification and classification system is used to develop database system for plant maintenance and management. The classification and identifications of plant equipment is taken as an example to show how the data structure is designed. The main thrust has been the equipment codification system in order to develop the database standards in information technology within energy industry.
