With millions of individual parts to describe, the complexity in standardizing material descriptions is significant. To reduce this effort, Intergraph® has built a Standard Database for SmartPlant® Reference Data that delivers a comprehensive range of commodity codes you can use to uniquely describe materials throughout a project life cycle. Within SmartPlant 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®).
