  1. In Options Manager, click Settings.

  2. To enable continuous service limit validation and automatic commodity code lookup, do the following:

    1. In the Enable piping specification validation field, select Yes.

    2. In the Use piping specification field, select the PDS3D, SmartPlant 3D, or SmartPlant Reference Data option, depending on the type of 3D database to which you are connected.

    3. Enable the Calc buttons for the Piping Materials Class and Commodity Code properties by assigning Calculation IDs in Data Dictionary Manager. For details, see the SmartPlant P&ID Utilities Guide topic, Enter Required ProgIDs (see ).

    • If the Use piping specification setting is PDS3D, SmartPlant 3D, or SmartPlant Reference Data and the Enable piping specification validation setting is No, continuous service limits validation and automatic commodity code lookup are not available. However, the user can still manually select the Calc buttons to activate the Commodity Code Lookup dialog box or the Piping Materials Class selection dialog box.

    • If the Use piping specification setting is No, continuous service limits validation and automatic commodity code lookup are not available. Also, the Calc buttons for the Piping Materials Class and Commodity Code properties are not functional.

    • The Short Value entries in the Piping Component Type select list in Data Dictionary Manager are populated from the contents of the PDS3D_SP3D_ShortCode_Correlation.txt file (located in the ..\SmartPlant\P&ID Workstation\bin folder) according to the Use Piping Specification setting as follows:

      • PDS3D — The Short Value column is populated with data from the second column of the PDS3D_SP3D_ShortCode_Correlation.txt file (AABBCC code).

      • SmartPlant 3D or SmartPlant Reference Data — The Short Value column is populated with data from the third column of the PDS3D_SP3D_ShortCode_Correlation.txt file.

      • No — The data in the Short Value column is not updated and remains what it was previously.

    • When changing the Use piping specification setting from No to PDS3D, SmartPlant 3D, or SmartPlant Reference Data, validation occurs only for items modified after the change.

  3. Do one of the following:

    • If connecting to a SmartPlant 3D database, fill in the database information in the SmartPlant 3D Plant Name and SmartPlant 3D Server Name fields, and then skip the rest of this procedure.

    • If connecting to a SmartPlant Reference Data database, fill in the database information in the SmartPlant Reference Data Plant Name and SmartPlant Reference Data Server Name fields, and then skip the rest of this procedure.

      The SmartPlant Reference Data server name must be entered as a connection string in the form of <Host Name>:<TCP/IP Port Number>/<Service Name>, for example:

      IN-SPMATDBSRV:1521/SDB2012

    • If connecting to a PDS 3D database, proceed with the remaining steps of this procedure.

  4. Select the database type from the PDS Database Type list. Supported database types are MSSQL and Oracle.

  5. Type the database name in the PDS Database Name field.

    The database name is not required for Oracle databases. The default value of a blank space, not a null, must be assigned for Oracle databases.

  6. Type a value in the PDS Database Server/Alias field.

    This entry defines the server name for a Microsoft SQL Server database or the Alias name on the client machine for an Oracle database.

  7. Type the user name and password of the ra schema of a PDS 3D project under PDS Approved Reference DatabaseSchema Name and PDS Approved Reference Database Schema Password respectively.

  8. Type the user name and password of the pd schema of a PDS 3D project under PDS Project Control Database Schema Name and PDS Project Control Database Schema Password respectively.

  9. In the Max-Temperature Unit in PDS3D list, select the unit of measurement used in PDS 3D for the maximum temperature limit for piping components.

  • For more information about changing reference data settings, see Change Reference Data Settings.

  • The PipeSpec Commodity Code Lookup utility uses these settings.

  • The PipeSpec Commodity Code Lookup utility does not run on specialty piping components. If the IsspecialtyItem value is True, then the utility ignores the piping component. If the value is False, then the utility processes the properties for the component as usual. The IsspecialtyItem property is specified in Catalog Manager.
