This procedure deals with creating and modifying an item on the lowest plant hierarchy level using the Plant Hierarchy Explorer.  Unit is the default lowest level in a hierarchy that has three levels.  This procedure allows you to create a <unit> with no module data.

  1. Start the Administration module and log on as Domain Administrator.

  2. With the Domain Administration window open, click .

  3. In the Plant Hierarchy Explorer, expand the plant hierarchy until you display the lowest level icon PPM All Outputs Graphic.

  4. Right-click the intermediate level immediately above the icon PPM All Outputs Graphic.

    • Intermediate level items are indicated by the icon PPM All Outputs Graphic.

    • To modify properties of an existing item, right-click the item itself, and then, on the shortcut menu, click Properties.

    • To delete an item, right-click the item itself, and then, on the shortcut menu, click Delete.  To delete an item that has child items, you must first delete the child items.

       Make sure you select the appropriate plant hierarchy node before you click New.  After creating a <unit>, you cannot move it to another plant hierarchy node.

  5. On the shortcut menu, click New.

  6. In the General tab of the <Unit> Properties dialog box, in the Name box, type a unit name which is unique within the current node of the parent level.

    SHARED Tip The name must contain at least one character that is not space.  The maximum name length is fifty characters.

  7. In the Number field, type a unit number that is unique within the current node of the parent level.

    • The value you type in the Number data field is generally used in the prefix part of the tag number naming conventions. For further information, see Define Naming Conventions. You do not have to define the unit number if you plant to define naming conventions without using the <unit> number segment.  However, you must define the <unit> number if you want to copy data from another <unit> even if in the source <unit>, naming conventions do not include the <unit> number segment.

    • If you change the unit number of a unit which already has naming conventions with the unit number segment, the new naming convention applies to existing items as well as for new items.

  8. Click OK to create the empty unit and display it in the Plant Hierarchy Explorer.
