The reference data for the Hole Management task is divided into the following areas:

  • Hole rules for calculating clearances, selecting fittings, checking manufacturability, and placing hole traces.

  • Catalog parts for hole traces, which include general holes and cableway holes.

  • Catalog parts used with holes, such as pipe sleeves, cable coamings, and conduit seals.

  • Example of catalog equipment with hole aspects. This equipment creates hole traces when penetrating structure objects.

  • Hole codelists in the catalog, which define attribute values.

Each type of reference data for the Hole Management task has a different set of related reference data files.
