Benefits of Intergraph® Smart Support

123Benefits of Intergraph® Smart Support

Intergraph Smart Support is a web portal through which customers may submit technical support requests and find Intergraph CAS technical information.  There are several customer benefits for using the Smart Support website including:

  • All questions and issues will be entered into the Smart Support system.  This will help ensure that no items are lost when someone is out of the office, that you receive a timely response, and that we can track how we are doing in terms of solving your problems.
  • Using Smart Support to log technical support requests will ensure automated delivery and escalation of support e-mail messages and attachments, ensuring a timely response to support queries.
  • A customer generated SR (Service Request) that is changed to a CR (Change Request, for a new feature) or TR (Trouble Report, for defects or “bugs”) will generate an automated response to the customer as to the status of the request.  Once the change is implemented or the defect fixed by the development team the customer will be notified as to when the appropriate service pack or hot fix will be available for download.
  • By tracking defects and change requests Intergraph CAS can determine customer trends for new feature additions, and also track potential problem areas of program development.  This allows us to prioritize our new feature list for inclusion into future releases.  It also allows us to identify any weak program areas and concentrate our development efforts on fixing such areas, therefore creating better, more user-friendly software.
  • By filling in Customer Satisfaction Surveys you can provide our management with instant feedback as to our support performance. This information will be used to improve our performance, thereby strengthening our commitment to our customers.
  • On the Smart Support site Intergraph CAS product downloads such as: Service Packs, hot fixes, documentation, newsletters, and utilities will all be made available and kept up to date.

How to get Separate Report for Foundation Loads from PV Elite Software

This is the new feature of PV Elite 2016 by adding an option to separate the foundation load information. Previously, the software only displayed basering and foundation load information on the Vessel Design Summary report. You can now select Foundation Loads on a New Page on the Configuration dialog which will result in the basering and foundation load information displaying on the new Foundation Support Summary report. A new Basering Cross Section View sketch also displays on both the Vessel Design Summary report and Foundation Support Summary report.

 

You will find a separate report for Foundation Loads:

Line Numbering System in CADWorx Plant Professional 2016

CADWorx Plant I tab: LNum > Setup

 

Line Number toolbar: Setup

 

Plant menu: Accessory > Line Numbers > Setup

 

Command line: NUMBERSETUP


 

Modifies any line number configuration. You can turn the line numbering system on or off. If the system is on, it can operate in a static or dynamic mode.

In the dynamic mode, CADWorx adjusts the line number according to the size or specification. In the static mode, you must manually change the size and specification. Static is useful when all components and sizes of a particular piping run are required to have the same line number (such as, the 3/4″ vent on an 8″ process line needs a line number of 8″-150-2001-N). Static line numbering is also useful when selecting runs of piping for other functions with CADWorx. For more information, see LineNumberSystem.

This system also works with a CADWorx P&ID setup configuration file. You can change the configuration file location in SETUP to use the same project configuration as any P&ID project. For more information, see Setup. Click Add in the Category group in this dialog box to select additional fields located in the process lines table of a typical P&ID project database. When using a P&ID project, changes made to a line number configuration within CADWorx reflect within the P&ID project.

If the system is not using a CADWorx P&ID setup configuration file, the additional fields are obtained from the DATABASE.TBL file located in the [Product Folder]\Plant\System folder. You must manually edit this file for any modifications required of the existing fields within the default line number system.

 


Line Numbering System Dialog Box

Controls parameters for line numbering systems. The name of the current configuration file displays at the top of the dialog box. You can also use a P&ID project configuration file.

Category

Specifies the active process line item. The list contains the process line items from the Database.TBL file in the [Product Folder]\Plant\System folder. You can add these items to any line number system. After you select an item, click Add to place it in the Category list. Highlight the item in the right list box, and then click Delete to remove it from the line number system. You can also type in a value, and then click Add.

Add

Adds the item from the Category box to the Category list.

Delete

Removes the selected item from the Category list.

Separator

Specifies a separator character. Type an alphanumeric value (including special characters such as , ~, #, or SPACE). Click Add to place it in the Category list. Highlight the item in the Category list, and then click Delete to remove it from the line number system.

Add

Adds the separator character to the Category list.

Delete

Removes the separator character from the Category list.

Default Value

Adds any default value to any category included in the Category list. The size and specification are disabled if the system is set to the dynamic mode.

System Off

Indicates that line numbers do not place in the drawing.

CONVERTFROMPRJDATA updates all selected components in the drawing to your current settings. If you run CONVERTFROMPRJDATA with this setting and do not have the Line number check box in the Apply Change Data Rule dialog box selected, the software erases your line numbers in the components you select for update. For more information, see Apply Change Data Rule Dialog Box.

System On (Dynamic Size/Spec)

Indicates that each component placed in the drawing receives a line number.

CONVERTFROMPRJDATA updates all selected components in the drawing to your current settings. If you run CONVERTFROMPRJDATA with this setting and do not have the Line number check box in the Apply Change Data Rule dialog box selected, the software changes your line number to the current values. For example, if you set the count to 1500, change a line number to 1506, and then run CONVERTFROMPRJDATA, the software changes any values in the line numbers back to 1500. For more information, see Apply Change Data Rule Dialog Box.

System On (Static Size/Spec)

Indicates that the line number system uses the value in the Default value box, including the size and specification. This allows you to type anything for the size and specification.

CONVERTFROMPRJDATA updates all selected components in the drawing to your current settings. If you run CONVERTFROMPRJDATA with this setting and do not have the Line number option in the Apply Change Data Rule dialog box selected, the software changes your line number to the current value set in Default Value. For example, if you have a line number specification set to 600, with a Default Value of 150, and then run CONVERTFROMPRJDATA, the software changes any values in the 600 specification line numbers back to 150. For more information, see Apply Change Data Rule Dialog Box.

Preview

Displays the line number based on the selected categories. The line number added to components looks similar to the Preview value.

Move Up

Moves the selected item higher in the Category list. The new order also displays in the Preview box.

Move Down

Moves the selected item lower in the Category list. The new order also displays in the Preview box.

Save and Close saves the current settings to the configuration file when you select the Line Number Setup check box in Miscellaneous CFG Content in the CADWorx Plant Setup. For more information, see Miscellaneous CFG Content, and Setup.

 

And Line Number Category list can be in pull down list

 

CADWorx Plant I tab: Palettes > Spec View

Palettes toolbar: Spec View

Plant menu: Palettes > Spec View

Command line: SPECVIEW >> Numbering System Dropdown Setup

 

Line Numbering System Dropdown Setup Dialog Box

Controls parameters for adding items to the line numbering list that appears with the line numbering system. These values are stored in the DropDownList.TXT file. This file is located in the same folder as the current configuration settings.
