4 SmartPlant Instrumentation Release Bulletin


SECTION 1

New Features in SmartPlant


Instrumentation
This section provides short descriptions of the new features in SmartPlant Instrumentation 2009
and it's service packs. For details of features added in previous versions of SmartPlant
Instrumentation, see the Release Bulletin document supplied with the specific version.

SmartPlant Instrumentation 2009 Service Pack 1


2009 Service Pack 1 Installation
When installing SmartPlant Instrumentation 2009 Service Pack 1, a previous installation of
SmartPlant Instrumentation 2009 is not required. During installation of the service pack in
this mode (no previous 2009 installation), Setup will perform a full product installation and
will prompt you for the product Serial Number. If you are installing the service pack on top
of an existing SmartPlant Instrumentation 2009 installation, you will not receive a prompt
for the product Serial Number.

General Features
It is possible to define custom fields for electrical equipment. Electrical equipment has been
added as a new item type on the Custom Fields dialog box in the Administration module.
Also, the Associated Electrical Equipment supporting table in the Instrument Index
module now has thirty additional custom fields for electrical equipment.
It is now possible to create instrument tags without spaces, for details see the Rule Manager
section.

As-Built and Projects


In an Owner Operator domain (As-Built), you can now work with the Cable Routing
functions that were previously only available in an EPC domain. When claiming cables that
have cable routing data, the cable routing data is now also moved to the project. In the
project, you can add new routing data, edit existing routing data, generate Cable Routing
Reports, and then merge the data back into the As-Built plant. The Cable Routing
functions can be performed across projects of the same plant.
In an Owner Operator domain (As-Built), it is now possible to work with cable drums as
you would in an EPC domain.

SmartPlant Instrumentation Release Bulletin 5


New Features in SmartPlant Instrumentation

It is recommended that any cables in the As-Built, that have been assigned to
cable drums, are un-assigned from their drums before you claim them to the project.
Failure to do so, will result in inconsistencies in the As-Built drum data when merging
the cables back to the As-Built. Cable drums created in the project can be merged to the
As-Built without creating any discrepancies in the As-Built drum data.

Domain Explorer
Uncoupled CS Tags Uncoupled CS tags (CS tags that are not linked to another tag), are
now stored in Uncoupled CS Tags folder added to the Domain Explorer under the Unit
hierarchy.
Cables and Panels folders Cables and Panels now appear in their respective folders
under the Unit they were assigned, in as well as in the main folders under the plant
hierarchy. It is also possible to drag and drop cables and panels from one unit to another.

Enhanced Reports
An assembly is a symbol created by combining a number of component symbols into one.
Until now if a change was made to one of the component symbols, the changes were not
reflected in the assembly without carrying out complex editing of the assembly symbol.
Now, using the Update Assembly command, changes made to component symbols are
reflected in the assembly symbol easily.
As well as displaying OPCs (Off Page Connectors) between drawing sheets, the Enhanced
Report Utility now has the ability to create OPCs between loop drawings. This new OPC
functionality allows you to display a dynamic reference to a related loop drawing and open
it from within another loop drawing. The OPC between drawings functions in regular and
custom modes.
Pairing of OPCs between loop drawings, allows you to select an OPC on one loop
drawing and pair it to another OPC on a different loop drawing. Then when you use the
OPC to open the second loop drawing, after the loop drawing has been generated, the
software automatically zooms-in to display the area around the paired OPC.
Labeling an OPC allows you to add a OPC Label text box to your OPC, you can then
use this label to give the OPC a unique name or descriptive text.
The OPCs between drawing sheets are now automatically created in custom mode as
well as in regular mode.
After upgrading to the Enhanced Report Utility 2009 Service Pack 1, upgraded
custom loops are now generated automatically with OPCs where the custom loop
drawing meets the required parameters.
Swap Objects Command - a new function added to the Enhanced Reports Utility that
allows the user to select two objects and swap their position visually on a report, without
making any changes to the sequencing, connections, and so forth.
Saving Custom Symbols in a Layout A new preference has been added to SmartPlant
Instrumentation that allows for the saving of customized symbols within a layout. This
allows you to generate a customized loop or fieldbus drawing that displays the customized
symbols instead of the default symbols.

6 SmartPlant Instrumentation Release Bulletin


New Features in SmartPlant Instrumentation

Integration
New user-defined fields are available in SmartPlant Instrumentation that allow you to map
electrical equipment for publish and retrieve.
When SmartPlant Instrumentation retrieves data from SmartPlant P&ID, it traverses piping
connectivity from instruments to detect relationships to process lines and process
equipment. This has now been enhanced to include special cases for relief valves.
Soft tags are now created from P&ID Control System Function objects when retrieving from
SmartPlant Instrumentation P&ID.
When publishing instrument tags from the Instrument Index module, in addition to
conventional tags, SmartPlant Instrumentation also supports publishing of tags belonging to
the following tag classes: Foundation Fieldbus, HART, Profibus-DP, Profibus-PA, and Soft
Tags. By default, all tags belonging to any of these tag classes are published. If you wish
to restrict the tag classes that are published, you can apply appropriate filters.
It is now possible, from the Style dialog box, to enable for the current browser view to
become available in the Show Browser dialog box that you open from an explorer window,
and the Find Documents to Publish wizard when working in an integrated environment

Internationalization
Updated translation and localization kits are now available for various languages.

Naming Conventions
A new NamingConventionMap.xml that handles conventional instruments and other
instrument classes such as Soft Tags, Fieldbus and so forth, is included with this Service
Pack 1 installation. Installing Service Pack 1 over SmartPlant instrumentation 2009
overwrites the existing NamingConventionMap.xml with the new one. If you have
customized the NamingConventionMap.xml in SmartPlant Instrumentation 2009 or earlier
and want to save these customizations for use with Service Pack 1, change the
NamingConventionMap.xml file name to NamingConventionMapOLD.xml, which is
under the SmartPlant Instrumentation home folder. After installing Service Pack 1, copy and
paste your customizations to the new NamingConventionMap.xml file in the XML folder.
For more details see, SmartPlant Instrumentation Installation and Upgrade Guide >
Pre-Installation Requirements > Upgrading the NamingConventions.xml File.

Rule Manager
A new rule is provided with the shipped data that enables you to trim all the extra spaces in
tag number names. In Rule Manager, enable the Trim Instrument Tag Names rule in the
Instrument Index folder.

SmartPlant Instrumentation Release Bulletin 7


New Features in SmartPlant Instrumentation

Specifications
You can associate an instrument tag with several specification forms and set an active
specification for that tag number. The specification can be a single-tag or a composite
specification but not a multi-tag specification. Also, if the selected tag has several process
data cases, you can associate different specification forms for each case.
You can now define a printout size for the Multi-Tag List of a multi-item specification.

Wiring
Cable Routing and Cable Drum functionality have been improved to allow for their use at a
project level.
It is now possible to drag and drop cables and panels from one unit to another. For details,
see the Domain Explorer section.
SmartPlant Instrumentation now allows you to export cables to SmartPlant Electrical.This
way SmartPlant Instrumentation cables can be worked on using all the available cable
management features of SmartPlant Electrical.

SmartPlant Instrumentation 2009


General Features
You can execute an upgrade using a command line upgrade format command.
You can upgrade directly from SmartPlant Instrumentation 7, Service Pack 7 to SmartPlant
Instrumentation 2009.
Network installation is no longer available as an option in the Setup.
SmartPlant Instrumentation allows you to perform external programming that enables two
types of external function for additional customized validation and update of data in
SmartPlant Instrumentation. The underlying principle of the external functions is that your
SmartPlant Instrumentation administrator can define additional validation and update rules
in SmartPlant Instrumentation Rule Manager. SmartPlant Instrumentation will utilize these
rules at runtime. In order for SmartPlant Instrumentation to activate these rules, additional
code will have to be written by your programmer.
The performance of batch deletion of loops and tags in the SmartPlant Instrumentation
(Domain and Reference) Explorer has been improved.
Changes have been made to the User Interface (icons, dialog boxes, and so forth) throughout
SmartPlant Instrumentation, to improve the user experience.
The software now supports AutoCAD 2008.
SmartPlant Instrumentation allows you to export cables to SmartPlant Electrical.

SECTION 4

Internationalization
Supporting internationalization in a homogeneous environment is one of the enhancements
available in SmartPlant Enterprise. A homogeneous environment uses elements from only a
single locale. For example, a German customer running on a German operating system using
only German characters and German cultural conventions is a fully supported homogeneous
environment configuration.

Homogeneous Environments
When starting a new project, use extra care during installation and configuration to ensure the
proper creation and maintenance of homogeneous environments:
All the computers (servers and clients) within an integrated SmartPlant Enterprise
implementation must have the same regional settings, and no one should change the regional
settings after the project has started.
Do not cross the decimal locale boundary. This is the most common cause of numeric data
corruption and calculation errors. Having users with different regional settings (like with a
period versus a comma for the decimal point) causes the software to interpret values
unpredictably. For example, a pipe run with a pressure of 35.3 psi can be read by the
software as 353 psi to the user with different regional settings. A cable length defined as 39
ft 11,21 inches has been interpreted as 121718910971323 meters when published to an
XML file. These incorrect interpretations may be used in internal software calculations and
can be impossible to backtrack or correct. Do not change the decimal point character to try
to solve an issue. Doing so will only corrupt values in the database or in text files.
Do not cross the character-set locale boundary. For example, the character set boundary
between Western (Latin-based) and Eastern Europe (Cyrillic-based), or between Eastern
Europe and Japan.
Create Microsoft SQL Server databases with locale-specific collation settings and ensure
that all databases have the same setting.

Heterogeneous Environments
In contrast, a heterogeneous environment using elements from different, or even multiple
locales, is not supported. Many customers are currently operating in unsupported
heterogeneous environments and are often not aware of that fact. Examples of heterogeneous
environments:
Entering or viewing Japanese data on an US/English operating system
Using German Regional Settings (where the decimal point is a comma) on a US/English
operating system
Using databases with different character encodings such as CL8MSWIN1251 or JA16SJIS
Using multiple languages in a project, especially when crossing language-group boundaries
Using an English server with different local language clients

Internationalization

International / Bi-lingual Projects


International bi-lingual projects are possible; however, great care must be used when
configuring these environments. Limitations exist and must be properly understood:
Oracle and MS SQL Server databases can reside on any language operating system, as long
as the databases have been created and configured with proper Unicode and collation
settings.
All Microsoft operating systems (Japanese, Russian, German, and so forth) can enter
English characters. The reverse, however, is not true in most cases.
Keyboard-locale can be changed as long as a character-set and code- page boundary is not
crossed. For example, English, German, French, and Spanish characters can all be used in
the same project because the same Windows code-page (1252) is used. However, Russian
characters (code-page 1251) cannot be used in a US/English environment.
You must decide which language operating system will be the master for bi-lingual projects.
The following is an example of a Russian-based project:
Companies in the United States and the United Kingdom are working a project with a Russian
company and the deliverables (drawings, reports, and so forth) must ultimately be provided in
Russian. The companies in the U.S. and the U.K. are working the project using the "master"
Russian operating systems (possibly using virtual Russian operating systems running on
VMware Workstation). The U.S. and U.K. companies can install and use English Microsoft
Office products on the Russian operating system because Office products are globally enabled.
If a Russian interface exists for the SmartPlant Enterprise application, then Russian users can
use the Russian interface while the English-speaking users would continue to use the
US/English interface. English-speaking engineers can enter English characters.
Russian-speaking engineers can enter Russian characters.
However, because the Russian locale uses different decimal and character-set locales, everyone
(English and Russian engineers) must use the Russian decimal symbol which is a comma. For
customization purposes, databases can be modified to accommodate new Russian-specific
requirements (fields, properties, and so forth.) Using filters, display sets, and other software
features, bi-lingual projects can be further customized. Graphic data, reports, and so forth can be
created in either or both languages.
Do not change regional settings to reflect a U.S. environment in order to resolve
problems in a non-US/English homogeneous configuration. Doing this creates a heterogeneous
configuration that will cause other possibly hidden problems that cannot be corrected. Everyone
working on a project must use the same regional settings and character set throughout the life of
the project.
