PDS TUTORIALS: Attribute Data (Revise & Review Database Attributes)

.

In this section you will learn how to review and revise the database attributes of segments, components, and pipes.

Topics

Review Attribute Data

Review Attribute Data reviews database information such as: piping, equipment, and nozzle attribute values. Select Review Data from the Piping pull-down menu.

Revise Gasket Option

Revise Gasket Option specifies an optional gasket for a specified component connect point. Select Revise Data from the Piping pull-down menu.

Revise Bolt Option

Revise Bolt Option specifies optional bolt data for a specified component connect pint. Select Revise Data from the Piping pull-down menu.

Load Weld Numbers

Load Weld Numbers automatically creates weld numbers that are unique within the project. Select Revise Data from the Piping pull-down menu.

Revise Weld Type

Revise Weld Type specifies the weld type for a specified component connect point. Select Revise Data from the Piping pull-down menu.

Isometric Drawing Limit

Isometric Drawing Limit places a marker indicating an isometric drawing limit in the user data of a selected piping item connect point (both mated items will be updated). Select Revise Data from the Piping pull-down menu.

Component Group

Component Group defines a set of components to be treated as a group. Select Revise Data from the Piping pull-down menu.

Recompute Wall Thickness

Recompute Wall Thickness recalculates the wall thickness values of entire pipelines or of an active group. Select Revise Data from the Piping pull-down menu.

Update from RDB

Update from RDB updates data in the model based upon revisions to data in the Specification/Material Reference Database, (such as a change to the Piping Job Specification or Physical Data Library). Select Revise Data from the Piping pull-down menu.

Approve Piping

Approve Piping changes the approval status attribute of a pipeline or the active group. Select Revise Data from the Piping pull-down menu.

Review RDB Report

Review RDB Report reviews components requiring reconstruction, replacement, or updating as a result of changes to the Reference Database. Select Review Data from the Piping pull-down menu.
