With millions of individual parts to describe, the complexity in standardizing material descriptions is significant. To reduce this effort, Hexagon PPM has built a Standard Database for Intergraph Smart® Reference Data that delivers a comprehensive range of commodity codes you can use to uniquely describe materials throughout a project life cycle. Within Smart Reference Data, the Standard Database employs sophisticated and exhaustive rules to maintain material descriptions.
The Standard Database incorporates a comprehensive catalog of industry-standard material parts, organized and described for out-of-the-box use by owner operators, engineering, procurement, fabrication, and construction. The content is pre-configured to enable catalog and piping specification interfaces to intelligent 3D applications (Intergraph Smart® 3D, PDS®, and CADWorx®).
Dozens of Support types and hundreds of sample pipe supports are included in version 2018 of the Standard Database. These supports have been designed to cover 80 percent of pipe support modeling needs of our customers. These Hangers and Supports are industry generic and applicable to process, power, onshore, offshore and pharma applications.
Standard Database is designed to provide customers with a quick start on projects, by not having to spend hundreds of work hours to create standard reference data. What is offered in the Standard Database is fully tested with the design tools so it is ready to go with 3D Design tools, Schematic tools and Material Management.
