Standard Database for SmartPlant® Reference Data

Standard Database for SmartPlant® Reference Data is a pre-configured, recommended best practice solution to enable rapid implementation of enterprise reference data management and/or materials management.

Pipes, building materials

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®).


Why Standard Database for SmartPlant Reference Data

Faster Implementation

Depending on the scope of the implementation, clients can typically save between three to 12 months on the initial implementation, and corresponding consulting and training fees

Less Training

Training is minimized, reducing implementation time and cost

Increase Productivity

High-quality production startup is ensured by eliminating the need for clients to re-enter the same standard reference data


PIP is pleased to be working with Intergraph to make our piping material specifications available to the industry. Our partnership with Intergraph will enhance delivery, and provide additional outlets for our PIP Practices. In addition, access to SmartPlant Reference Data will enable us to better manage future revisions and updates to our piping material specifications.
