As an Owner Operator/EPC Project Mode you can create and export a package with reference data only . This gives an external contractor a blank canvas to populate the project with new items using just the reference data supplied.

The Reference Data Types are:

  • Admin access

  • Wiring supporting tables

  • Instrument Index supporting tables

  • Telecom supporting tables

  • DDP Module supporting tables

  • Maintenance supporting tables

  • Process Data supporting tables

  • Specs templates

  • Reference Explorer items

  • Units of Measure definitions

  • Enhanced Reports changes (layout and reports)
    In Smart Instrumentation versions 2018 and 13.1, the ESL layouts are reference data. Therefore changes made to ESL layouts in a project, are imported/merged to your target database changing the reference data. To safeguard against this happening, inform the package/project user to avoid making any changes to the ESL Layouts. This is applicable when working with Offline Projects.

  • Macro definitions

You can export existing projects or create a new project with your scoped items.

To create and export a package with only reference data, follow the procedure Create a Project until step, click Scope.

Click Scope and do the following:

  1. Scope the required unit/units you require to the project.

    If you are using an existing project, make sure that you are using a project that has no plant items copied to it.

  2. Click Export.

  3. In the Save dialog box, type a name for your exported project file.

    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.

































    SHARED Tip We recommend that you keep this empty project for future export of the reference data only package.

  4. Click Save.
