You can update and configure disciplines and purposes that display in the Overview windows of CWPs and IWPs in Smart Construction. When you create a CWP and IWP in Smart Construction, you can select a discipline for the package, such as Piping or Electrical. After you select a discipline for an IWP, you can then select a purpose specific to the IWP's discipline, such as Fabrication or Installation.
Disciplines and purposes are configurable and can be personalized for a company's business needs and practices.
If you want to add new objects and relationships to meet the needs of your company, you can extend the Smart Construction schema in the Custom_SPC.eds file in Schema Editor. For more information, see Extend the Smart Construction Schema.
When you install Smart Construction, the following enumerated lists are delivered with the Smart Construction schema:
Construction discipline - defines disciplines for IWPs and CWPs.
FIWP purposes - defines purposes for IWPs.
FIWP purposes lookup - defines a relationship between IWP disciplines and purposes. Purposes are assigned to disciplines.
You can create and edit disciplines and purposes by editing or adding child entries in their respective enumerated list, Construction discipline or FIWP purposes enumerated list. After editing or creating disciplines or purposes, you can define the relationships among the IWP disciplines and purposes in the FIWP purposes lookup enumerated list. This enumerated list defines which purposes are available for which disciplines in the Smart Construction client interface.
After you add or edit disciplines and purposes in the schema, you must load the edited schema file into SmartPlant Foundation Desktop Client. After the load, users can view the updated disciplines and purposes on the package Overview window in Smart Construction.
