This dialog box is used to define options for modifying property values during the import process.  If the delivered import transformation program (CopyTransformation.Import) is used, the options described below are available:

Sequence numbers

Generate new — Selecting the option causes existing tag sequence numbers to be set to null for any item that has the property TagSequenceNo. The null sequence number triggers the creation of new sequence numbers during normal item tag validation.

Add value to the beginning of all sequence numbers — When you select this option, you can use the box to type the values you want to display at the beginning of all your sequence numbers.

Keep existing if unique — If the sequence number for an imported item is unique, it will be left as it was, but if the software detects a duplicate item tag in the plant for an item type where duplicate item tags are not allowed, the tag sequence number will be incremented to the next available value.

  • Duplicate item tags are allowed in the plant for the following item types only: pipe runs, duct runs, and signal runs of Plant Item Type Pipe Runs.

  • When importing a drawing that has a loop associated with one or more instruments, the sequence number that the newly-created loop receives is in accordance with the selected option; however, the instrument / loop associations will correspond to those in the source drawing and the instruments will retain the original values for their Tag Seq No and Item Tag properties. This may result in a mismatch between the loop and instrument sequence numbers. To resolve this situation, you must update the related instrument tags on the Update Associated Instruments with Loop Properties dialog box in Smart P&ID.

  • Item tag values follow the behavior set by the ItemTag.dll file. For more details, see the Smart P&ID Modeler Online Help topic Default Item Tag Configurations.

Clear piping material classification — Select to remove any defined piping materials class.

Clear process data — Select to remove any values in the Process category.

Drawing and plant item associations

Allows you to specify the behavior of the plant item associations when importing the drawing, determined by the combination of selections that you make under the Associate drawings and Associate plant items sections.

Associate drawings

  • By current plant group — When performing the import, the software re- associates all drawings in the selected source plant group with the target plant group selected when Import Drawing was initiated.

  • By mapping (multiple plant groups) — When performing the import, the software re-associates the drawings in each plant group with the target plant groups chosen in the Mapping dialog box.  For the current source and target plant groups, the mapping overrides the selection made at the initiation of Import Drawing.

Associate plant items

  • By drawing plant group associations — All plant items in each plant group, regardless of their drawing associations in the source, are re-associated with the target plant group specified for the drawing.

  • By mapping — All plant items in each plant group, regardless of their drawing associations in the source, are re-associated according to the definitions made in the Mapping dialog box.

  • Re-associate items depending on original associations — Those plant items that belong to the plant group of the drawing itself follow the mapping for the drawing.  Other plant items follow the plant item mapping.

The following table describes the resulting behavior for each of the settings:

Associate drawings

Associate plant items

Resulting behavior for the imported drawing

By current plant group

By drawing plant group associations

The drawing and all of its plant items are re-associated with the current plant group.  For details, see Import Options - Example 1.

By current plant group

By mapping

The drawing is re-associated with the current plant group and the plant items are re-associated according to the mapping.  For details, see Import Options - Example 2.

By current plant group

Depending on original associations

The drawing and those plant items that were associated with the same plant group as the drawing are re-associated with the current plant group.  Other plant items follow the plant item mapping.  For details, see Import Options - Example 3.

By mapping (multiple plant groups)

By drawing plant group associations

The drawing is re-associated according to the mapping.  All plant items in a particular drawing are re-associated with the target plant group specified for that drawing in the mapping.  For details, see Import Options - Example 4.

By mapping (multiple plant groups)

By mapping

The drawing and the plant items follow the mapping.  For details, see Import Options - Example 5.

By mapping (multiple plant groups)

Depending on original associations

The drawing and those plant items that were associated with the same plant group as the drawing follow the mapping for the drawing.  Other plant items follow the plant item mapping.  Note that the end result is the same as for the previous combination of settings.  For details, see Import Options - Example 6.

'In use' plant group data only — Filters the plant groups available for mapping so that only those plant groups that have associated plant items and drawings will be available on the Mapping dialog box.

Mapping — Opens the Mapping dialog box to allow you to define the associations between the target and source plant groups for the drawings and / or the plant items depending on the settings you choose.  This button is only enabled when you make appropriate selections under Import options.
