Project Management allows you, in the role of an administrator, to manage the design and the related hierarchy of permission groups and access privileges. You can also create models, maintain databases, define global workshare locations, and work with Reference 3D models. To start Project Management, click Start > All Programs > Intergraph Smart 3D > Project Management.

  • Prior to using the Project Management software, you must use the Database Wizard to create the site, site schema, catalog, and catalog schema databases. The Database Wizard is located at Start > All Programs > Intergraph Smart 3D > Database Tools > Database Wizard.

  • If the Project Management task does not point to the appropriate database, errors result when you open that database. To correct this problem, close Project Management, and use Start > All Programs > Intergraph Smart 3D > Database Tools > Modify Database and Schema Location to change the site database that the task is viewing. For more information about this utility, see the Smart 3D Installation Guide.
