A component schema is a subset of the SmartPlant Schema Class Definitions identified for a particular task or discipline. Each tool has its own set of component schemas for published data, and SmartPlant Foundation has additional component schemas for authoring and common data. The component schemas are linked to domains as described later in this document.
Authoring Component Schema
The Authoring Component Schema (SPFAuthoringComponent) is the authoring schema that contains the key authoring class definitions and interfaces. The contents of this schema contain document classes to support storage of SmartPlant Foundation adapters, Authoring registration data, and Same As relationships. It also contains key interfaces used to control what objects can be published.
Process Design Component Schema
The supplied Process Design Component Schema (ProcessDesignComponent) is a working example of an authoring component. The contents of this schema contain the classes to support the Instrument Process Data sheets and a design basis object for the Process Engineer used after objects are retrieved into the process domain.
