Displays a list of components in the current pipeline model that are out-of-sync with what is defined in the active material specification. This dialog box opens automatically when you click File > Synchronize Specification.

The Synchronize Specification command compares pipeline model objects against what is currently defined in the active specification and looks for discrepancies between the material description, dimensional data, and attribute data. Model objects with dimensional data or material attributes that do not match what is in the active specification are listed in table format.

The software does not check for changes to the material SKEY or item code.

Component

Displays the fly-text for the out-of-sync component. The information displayed in the fly-text depends upon the type of component.

Dimension

Indicates whether the dimension of the listed component has been modified in the active material specification. If so, Changed is displayed in this column.

Properties

Indicates whether the material description or any attribute data for the listed component has been modified in the active material specification. If so, Changed is displayed in this column.

Update Possible

Indicates whether the component can be updated to match what is defined in the active material specification. True indicates that the component can be updated. False indicates that the component cannot be updated. A component whose material properties have changed can be updated without any issues. However, a component whose dimensions have changed can be updated only if the neighboring pipe can accommodate those changes. In situations where the dimensional changes cannot be accommodated, such as when the neighboring pipe is too small, the component is considered out-of-spec and is made generic.

Update

Replaces those components that display True in the Update Possible column. Components that display False in the Update Possible column are made generic.

Cancel

Closes the dialog box without making any updates.
