When a SmartPlant application publishes, the user can publish documents using a workflow. The following list describes the delivered publish workflows and use cases for the workflows.

Workflow description

Workflow use cases

Auto-Correlate

Compares the objects in a published document to the objects that are already in SmartPlant Foundation. If the object correlates by name or through the relationship with the parent object (using rules) to an object with the same shared object definition, SmartPlant Foundation automatically correlates the objects. If the object can correlate to more than one object through multiple shared object definitions, a task is placed in the To Do list to allow the user to select the correlation.

Use Auto-correlate

  • When a publishing tool does not have correlation functionality.

  • When a publishing tool does not retrieve.

  • When using SmartPlant Foundation to perform consistency checking and the authoring applications do not retrieve.

  • When Shared Objects To Correlate option is used to configure which types of objects are auto-correlated.

AutoLoadPublish

Generates a document load task and consolidate task for the publishing document. These tasks are performed by the SmartPlant Foundation Scheduler.

Use AutoLoadPublish when you intend to load the published document data into SmartPlant Foundation.

AutoLoadPublishMerge

Publish large 3D models. Creates the published 3D document, loads the 3D data in SmartPlant Foundation, then merges these object sets into a new composite document that represents the entire 3D model.

Use AutoLoadPublishMerge when you intend to view or navigate multiple 3D models as one composite 3D model document in one 3D view.

Correlate

Places published objects with possible correlations in the To Do list. From the To Do list, the user manually correlates selected items. SmartPlant Foundation creates a shared object.

Correlate works similar to Auto-Correlate except you can view the possible correlations before the actual correlation takes place.

Publish

Takes the document through an approval step. Upon approval, it creates the document load and consolidate tasks.

Use Publish when you want the published document approved before it is loaded into SmartPlant Foundation. The approval step is added to the To Do list.

PublishWithDocLoad

Loads document into a document configuration and submits document to approval step. Upon approval, it creates document the load and consolidate tasks.

Use PublishWithDocLoad when you want to view the document data in SmartPlant Foundation before approval. The approval step is added to the To Do list.

PublishForLoadOnly

Generates a document load task and consolidate task for the publishing document and makes the documents irretrievable by any tool. These tasks are performed by the SmartPlant Foundation Scheduler.

Use PublishForLoadOnly when you want to publish documents to view, navigate and also for consistency checking in SmartPlant Foundation without the possibility of the document being retrieved by any tool.
