This chapter describes how to generate a PAL template with commodity code and S3D short code as placeholders.

Add place holders

  1. Log in to Smart Materials and Reference Data.

  2. Click Intergraph Smart > Smart Reference Data> S.70 Assemblies > S.70.02 PAL Templates.

  3. Create or open an existing PAL template.

  4. Click in the PAL Template Text box, find the Commodity Code, and then click OK.

    The commodity code place holder is inserted at the bottom of the PAL Template Text editor.

  5. Cut the &&Px.y Commodity Code && place holder, and then paste as one of the parameters.

  6. Replace x.y with the positions.

  7. Use steps 4 to 6 to insert S3D short code, replace with the position values.

Set multi assembly positions and generate PAL template

  1. Click Intergraph Smart > Smart Reference Data> S.70 Assemblies > S.70.01 Build Assembly Structure.

  2. Select Group and Part to which you want to map the PAL template.

  3. From the PAL Template Code list, select the PAL template to which you have added the place holders

  4. Click Multi Assembly Positions, and then enter Pos, SubPos, Short Code, Group, Part, and Option.

    Based on Smart Reference Data short code at the assembly positions, the corresponding S3D short code mappings are retrieved. The software first considers S3D short code that are mapped to the parts. The parts to consider are the parts that are mapped to the available Smart Reference Data short codes in the assembly positions under short code part mappings. If there are no associated S3D short code to a part, the software then considers S3D short codes that are mapped to the SRD short code. For all S3D short code mappings, it considers only the short code for the selection basis codelist mentioned in the PAL replacement text, for example &&P1.1 S3D Short Code_5&&, the selection codelist value is 5.

  5. Click Generate PAL.

If the available Smart Reference Data short code in the assemblies are mapped to any S3D short code, you will be prompted to select the S3D short code that should be replaced in the PAL file. The system allows only a single selection for an assembly position and sub position. If there is no mapped S3D short code, the software does not replace the place holders in the PAL file, and generates the PAL template without a value.
