When creating a new lowest plant hierarchy item, you can copy data from another existing lowest plant hierarchy item within the same domain.  In the plant hierarchy, the lowest source item can belong to any highest item in the current domain.  The default lowest plant hierarchy item is <unit>.  The default highest plant hierarchy item is <plant>.  When the domain is an owner operator or EPC-Project Mode domain, you can select a specific project to which you want to copy <unit> data from the source project.

It is only possible to copy data to a <unit> that has no naming conventions.  In the target <unit>, the software creates naming conventions according to the naming convention definitions in the source <unit>.  Therefore, after you copy data to a particular <unit>, it is not possible to copy any additional data to the same unit again.  When copying <unit> data, the software does not copy the access right definitions set for the source <unit>.

After copying data from one <unit> to another within a <plant> that is registered with Integration, it is possible to publish data from the new <unit>.  When copying data to a <unit> in another <plant>, the Integration registration information is not copied.

You copy <unit> after making source data selections on the Copy Data from Source dialog box.  Your module data selection is retained when you reopen the Copy Data from Source dialog box apart from the following options:

  • Selection of specification item types

  • Selections on the Wiring Item Naming Options dialog box

  • Revision copying options

The following table lists the modules and the module data available for selection on the Copy Data from Source dialog box.

Module

Module Data

Notes and Restrictions

Instrument Index

Tag numbers
Loop numbers
P&ID drawing references
Lines
Equipment
Document associations
Calibration
Custom tables

Instruments belonging to Test Equipment tag class are not copied.
Calibration data only includes calibration settings.

Process Data and Calculation

Process data sheets with or without revisions
Calculation sheets with or without revisions

When copying revisions, you can set a different revision method for the target <unit>.
Document numbers of process data and calculations sheets are not updated in the target unit even if they have been created in the source using according to naming conventions.

Specifications

All module data.  You can copy specifications with or without revisions.

When copying revisions, you can set a different revision method for the target <unit>.
Document numbers of specifications are not updated in the target unit even if they have been created in the source using according to naming conventions.

Wiring

Wiring items with the connection data

Cross wiring is not copied.

Loop Drawings

All module data, including enhanced SmartLoop drawings.  You can copy drawings with or without revisions.

CAD drawing blocks associated with instrument tags or loops are not copied.  CAD blocks is Smart Instrumentation are defined per <plant>.  When copying Loop Drawings module data to another <plant>, if your source instruments include instrument blocks assigned manually or loop blocks, these blocks are not created in the target <plant>.  On the other hand, instrument blocks associated with tags via instrument type are created in the target <plant>.
When copying revisions, you can set a different revision method for the target <unit>.
Document numbers of loop drawings are not updated in the target unit even if they have been created in the source using according to naming conventions.

Hook-Ups

All module data and associations

You can only copy the Hook- Ups module data in its entirety.
Hook-ups are not copied to another <plant>.  You can copy hook-ups to another <plant> using the Merger Utility options.
Hook-u associations with instruments are not copied to another <plant>, only within the same <plant>.

Dimensional Data for Piping

All module data

You can only copy the module data in its entirety.
Document numbers of dimensional data sheets are not updated in the target unit even if they have been created in the source using according to naming conventions.
