Enables the Domain Administrator to create a new <plant> or edit an existing <plant> profile.  In the Plant Hierarchy Explorer, you can create as many plants (that is, plant hierarchy items on Level 1) as you require.  The names of plant hierarchy items must be unique within the level.

 After creating a first <plant>, you cannot change the plant hierarchy levels that you defined in the Plant Hierarchy dialog box.  Therefore, it is recommended that prior to defining plant hierarchy items in the Plant Hierarchy Explorer, you create all the plant hierarchy levels that you require.  If you need to change the plant hierarchy levels after defining <plants>, you must first delete all the <plants>.

If you use three plant hierarchy levels (that is, the default number of levels), you can also use the DEFAULT plant options, if the System Administrator has enabled the use of the default plant.  The DEFAULT plant has the following hierarchy levels: Plant, Area, and Unit.

<Plant> — Allows you to enter or modify the name of the highest level item in the current plant hierarchy node.  The name must be unique within the current domain.  The name must contain at least one character that is not space.  The maximum name length is fifty characters.

Address 1 / Address 2 / City / State / Zip code / Country — Allow you to enter the <plant> address details.

Site name — Allows you to enter the name of the site where the <plant> is located.

Owner — Allows you to select the <plant> owner from the list.  You define this list in the Owner dialog box.

Standard — Allows you to select the default pipe standard for the <plant>.  The following standards are available:


  • ANSI / DIN

  • Other

These values affect the values that the software assigns to certain properties on the Line Properties dialog box in Smart Instrumentation.

Do not propagate wire tag names — Allows the software to suppress the tag number naming propagation along the signal path — this way Smart Instrumentation users can customize wire tag names along the propagated signal path.  If you clear this check box, the software propagates wire tag names — this way, all the wires along the propagated signal path are named according to the tag number from which the signal originates.

Note — Allows you to enter a short note.  To insert a carriage return, press CTRL + ENTER.
