Intergraph Smart® Standard Database for Hangers and Supports

plant exterior

A standard database catalog of dozens of support types covering multiple industries around the world, the Intergraph Smart® Standard Database (SDB) for Hangers and Supports has been designed to cover 80 percent of pipe support modeling needs of our customers. This product is a must-have for all customers of Intergraph Smart 3D, both new and existing.

This product is the culmination of many years of development work and encapsulates standard engineering practices from all over the world and across many industries. While its name might suggest so, SmartPlant® Reference Data or the SDB are NOT prerequisites to use this product.

Better data quality for owner operators projects & operations
