In Smart Instrumentation, it is possible to assign a document number to a process data, dimensional data, or calculation sheet, item specification, loop drawing, or panel- strip report.  In the Administration module, you can define a document number naming convention individually for each document type available in Smart Instrumentation.  On the Naming Conventions dialog box, the document types appear in the Convention list, in parenthesis beside the Document Number string.  This topic provides examples of document number naming conventions for instrument specifications and loop drawings.

 To set the software to update document numbers when renaming instruments in Smart Instrumentation, your document number naming conventions must include instrument naming convention segments that users can rename.

Segment Definition Example for the Instrument Specification Document Number

Implementation Example in Smart Instrumentation

The following example shows a spec document number in the Domain Explorer.  The software created this number according to the naming convention that you defined.  After you set the appropriate instrument type profiles to include specification data, the software applies the convention when you do any of the following:

  • Create a new instrument specification — the software displays the document number automatically in the New Specification dialog box.

  • Edit properties of an existing loop or tag, and then, on the Tag Number Properties dialog box, select the Update document numbers check box.

Segment Definition Example for the Loop Drawing Document Number

Implementation Example in Smart Instrumentation

The following example shows a loop drawing document number in the Loop Drawing List dialog box, which displays various properties of loop drawings that you can generate.  The software created this number according to the naming convention that you defined.  The software applies the convention when you do any of the following:

  • Create a new loop — the software assigns automatically the document number to the drawing that you can generate for the loop.

  • Edit properties of an existing loop, and on the Loop Number Properties dialog box, select the Update document numbers check box.

  • If you do not define a naming convention for instrument specification document numbers, the software creates the default document number
    <tag number>-SP.

  • If you do not define a naming convention for calculation sheet document numbers, the software creates the default document number
    <tag number>-CL.

  • If you do not define a naming convention for process data sheet document numbers, the software creates the default document number
    <tag number>-PD.

  • If you do not define a naming convention for document numbers of dimensional data sheets, the software creates the default document number
    <tag number>-DDP.

  • If you do not define a naming convention for loop drawing document numbers, the software creates the default document number
    LD <loop number>.

  • For other documents, the software only creates document numbers when naming conventions exist.

  • In Smart Instrumentation, it is always possible to change the document number associated with a document, for example, on the Revisions dialog box.

  • If needed, when editing properties of a tag or loop number, you can update the document number for the associated documents.  In this case, the software assigns document numbers according to the document number naming conventions.

 Unlike user-defined naming conventions, default naming conventions of document numbers cannot be updated automatically in Smart Instrumentation when users rename instruments.  Suppose you want to rename a tag number FT-100 to FT-101 and the source tag has a spec FT- 100-SP.  After renaming, the default document number of the renamed instrument specification remains as FT-100-SP, even though this number contains the 100 segment, which was renamed for the instrument.
