Enables the user with project access rights to create or modify projects in an Owner operator domain or EPC-Project Mode.  To open this dialog box, click Activities > Project Activities.

Project — Allows you to select a project from this list or type a new project name.

Description — Allows you to type a short description for the project or As-Built.

Project Administrator — Allows you to select a user defined by the Domain Administrator as Project Administrator for the current project.  By default, this list displays users belonging to the ADMINISTRATORS group because only such a user can create the first project.  In addition to users belonging to the ADMINISTRATORS group, this list contains users belonging to other groups the Domain Administrator assigned to the current project.

Plant — Allows you to select the <plant> you want to associate with the project.  If under Project you selected As-Built or Project Center, you cannot select a specific plant because As-Built and Project Center are associated with all the existing plants.  In this case, the Plant box displays All Plants.

Instrumentation/process data workflow — Allows you to select a workflow option for As-Built, Project Center or project.  The following options are available:

  • Full — Activates all workflow options, including marking instrument tags for release as a formal issue in a binder package.  The Release to Spec option becomes available in the Document Binder module and in the Spec Change Notification Options dialog box.

  • Without Document Binder — Activates all workflow options, except for the option to release instrument tags as a formal issue in a binder package.

  • None — No workflow options are activated.

Do not propagate wire tag names — Suppresses the tag number name propagation along the signal path. This way, users can customize wire tag names along the propagated signal path.

 If you clear this check box, the software can propagate wire tag names.  This means that all the wires along the propagated signal path will be named according to the tag number from which the signal originates.

Notes — Allows you to enter notes or comments for the current project or As-Built.

Action — Indicates the current action taking place when importing a project.

Command Buttons

Apply — Saves the changes.  If you click Apply to create a new project, the software prompts you whether you want to copy Smart Instrumentation user groups from As-Built or Project Center.  If you choose not to copy the user groups, the software creates the project with only one user group (that is, the group to which the current Project Administrator belongs).

The software also prompts you whether you want to create the Project schema.  You need to create the Project schema to make the project accessible for Smart Instrumentation users.  If you do not create the Project schema at this stage, the software only saves the project name and description.

 If you do not create the Project schema at this stage, you can still proceed with claiming items for the project.  The software creates the project schema automatically when you claim an item.

New — Prompts to create a new project.

The following characters should not be used in a project name as this could cause problems when exporting a project or when using the Command Line Interface.

































Edit — Allows you to edit the definition of the current project.

Delete — Deletes the selected project, if is does not contain claimed items.  You can only delete an empty project after merging data.  If your project no longer contains any data but you previously deleted claimed items from the project, you must still perform a merge process to delete these items from As-Built and Project Center as well.

Scope — Allows you to select a claim source for the current project and then proceed with defining the scope of items for the project.  The claim source can be either As-Built, Project Center, or any other project that has data, if the System Administrator cleared the Exclusive claim mode check box in the Domain Definition window.  If this check box is selected, it is only possible to define the scope of items for the current project using As-Built or Project Center as a claim source.

Export – Opens the Browse for Folder dialog box where you select the folder you want to save your exported project database .ddti file.

  • A DDTI file contains data that is not database dependent. The data in a DDTI file can be imported to any database format (MSS or Oracle) irrespective of its source.

A DDTI project package file is not Smart Instrumentation version dependent. You can import and export from any version higher than 2018 to any other version of Smart Instrumentation version higher than 2018. For example 2018 to 14.0, 13.1 to 2018, and any later versions. However, certain functionalities of the export process are dependent on the Smart Instrumentation version. For example; giving Access Rights to the project reference data is only available from Smart Instrumentation 13.1 HF 7

Colors — Opens a dialog box where you can specify the colors used to indicate the status of the items selected for using in a project or merging with As-Built.

Logo — Allows you to define a new logo for the current project, after you click Edit.

Import — Opens the Select a file to Import dialog box where you select the project database .ddti file you want to import. After selecting the required file and clicking OK, the Merge Options dialog box opens. Here you select the merge option you want to apply to the file you are importing. The options available are:

  • All – Imports all the data from your project .ddti database file.

  • Specification and Process Data Only – Used for importing only specifications and process data.

  • Exclude Specifications and Process Data – Used for importing and merging data that is not process data (wiring and so forth).
