Enables the Domain Administrator to the create a new lowest plant hierarchy level item or edit properties of an existing lowest plant hierarchy level item.  The default lowest plant hierarchy level is <Unit>.  Also, you can access a dialog box from which you can copy data to the current <Unit> from a different <Unit> that exists in the current domain.

Parent hierarchy — Displays the plant hierarchy to which the current <Unit> belongs.

Name — Allows you to enter or modify the name of the <Unit>. 

  • The name must be unique within the current node of the parent level.  

  • The name must contain at least one character that is not a space. 

  • The maximum name length is fifty characters. 

  • Special characters are not allowed, as they may cause unexpected results when creating items in such a unit or copying data into this unit.

Number — Allows you to enter the number to be used as a segment in item naming conventions in the current <Unit>. 

  • The number must be unique within the current node of the parent level.

  • You do not have to define the unit number if you plan to define naming conventions without using the <Unit> number segment.  However, you must define the number if you want to copy data from another <Unit> even if in the source <Unit> naming conventions do not include the number segment. 

  • Special characters are not allowed, as they may cause unexpected results when creating items in such a unit or copying data into this unit.

  • If you change the number of an existing <Unit> and click OK, the software displays a prompt message in which you can click Yes to update all existing tag and loop numbers or click No to cancel the change to the <Unit> number.  If you click Yes, you are then prompted to update control system tag numbers.  If your instruments and loop naming conventions in the current <Unit> include the <Unit> number segment, the software updates this number automatically.  When you open the current <Unit> in Smart Instrumentation, you can see that all existing tag and loop numbers have been updated accordingly.  The document numbers associated with instruments and loops are not updated.

Note — Allows you to enter a short note for the current lowest plant hierarchy level item. The maximum note length is 200 characters.

Copy From — Opens a dialog box where you select a source lowest plant hierarchy level item for copying data to the current item.
