Installation & Upgrade
2015 R1 (7.1)
7.1 (2014 R1)
7.2 (2014 R2)

To enable SmartPlant P&ID to work in an integrated environment, you must do the following:

  1. Install Intergraph SmartPlant (Schema Component and the SmartPlant Client), delivered with SmartPlant Foundation, on each Smart Engineering Manager and SmartPlant P&ID engineering application workstation.  For more information about installing these components, see the SmartPlant Enterprise Installation and Setup Guide.

    Before you install Intergraph SmartPlant (Schema Component and the SmartPlant Client), be sure to install the software prerequisites described in the SmartPlant Client Workstations section of the SmartPlant Enterprise Installation and Setup Guide.

  2. Use a hierarchy that contains a minimum of three levels when you create your plant in Smart Engineering Manager.

    In addition to requiring a minimum of three-levels in hierarchies, SmartPlant configurations also require that the names of hierarchy items must not be changed after they are created and that the hierarchy structure must not be modified after you create the project.  For more information, see the SmartPlant Enterprise Installation and Setup Guide or the Using Custom Hierarchies in an Integrated Environment.

  3. Associate applications with and assign user access rights to your plant.

    When and Smart Electrical are both enabled for a plant, they are both enabled for all projects in that plant.  If a project requires only one of these applications, create separate plants for each application, then enable for one plant and Smart Electrical for the other.

  4. Edit the SmartPlant Resource Path setting in Options Manager to point to the SmartPlant Resources folder installed with the SmartPlant P&ID reference data.

    The path specified in Options Manager must contain the tool schema (for example, SPIDDataMap.xml) for publish and retrieve operations between the tool and SmartPlant to work properly.  For more information, see the SmartPlant P&ID help.

  5. Register your SmartPlant plant with SmartPlant Foundation, as described in the Smart Engineering Manager Help.

    • When you register your plant, you must specify the location of the Smart Engineering Manager schema map file (SPEMDataMap.xml).  For more information, see the Specify Map File dialog box topic in Smart Engineering Manager Help.

    • If only one application is associated with the plant at the time it is registered, only that application is registered.  If another application is later associated with the plant, the Register command is enabled so that you can register the new application with the plant.
