Intergraph has released the newest version of Standard Database for SmartPlant Reference Data, a pre-configured, best-practice solution to enable rapid implementation of SmartPlant 3D and SmartMarine 3D (collectively known as Smart 3D), and materials management. The Standard Database reduces the effort required to define items, descriptions and dimensions that satisfy requirements throughout various phases of a project by delivering a comprehensive range of commodity codes used to uniquely describe materials through a project life cycle, while employing sophisticated and exhaustive rules to maintain material descriptions.

A major part of this new release includes providing all SmartPlant Reference Data users access to available Process Industry Practicies (PIP) piping material specifications through Intergraph’s partnership with PIP. PIP is a consortium of process industry owners and engineering construction contractors, which publishes and maintains recommended Practices for the process industry that are used by companies all over the world. The newest version of Standard Database will include 40 PIP specifications, with a further 25 to be available in the next release.

Standard Database is bundled with SmartPlant Reference Data, the Intergraph solution that provides materials libraries at the corporate and project levels, enabling better standardization and change management. SmartPlant Reference Data maintains catalog and pipe specifications for Smart 3D, SmartPlant Materials and other SmartPlant Enterprise solutions. PIP specifications are ready for use in Smart 3D, reducing implementation time for faster project start-up. SmartPlant Reference Data users can quickly and easily transfer the PIP specificaitons as-is into the Smart 3D model, and use them immediately in the Smart 3D model.

"PIP is pleased to be working with Intergraph to make our piping material specifications available to the industry," said Bernie Ebert, director of PIP. "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."

"Our partnership with PIP will enhance Standard Database for SmartPlant Reference Data, delivering more value to our customers," said Patrick Holcomb, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine executive vice president. "These PIP specifications are available for design and material management, and applicable in a variety of industries, making them relevant for any start-up project. As an active contributor to industry standardization initiatives, Intergraph is the first commercial software vendor to integrate the PIP specifications and distribute globally, enabling our customers to be more efficient and productive for increased global competitiveness."

SmartPlant Enterprise offers a powerful portfolio of industry-leading, best-in-class design and data management solutions, enabling companies in the process, power and marine industries to capture integrated engineering knowledge at the enterprise level for the competitive advantage needed in today’s and tomorrow’s market. SmartPlant Enterprise’s integrated suite of solutions enables proven productivity gains, improving engineering efficiency by up to 30 percent. This is why the majority of plants built worldwide are designed using Intergraph solutions.

The ARC Advisory Group, a leading industry analyst firm, ranked Intergraph the No. 1 overall engineering design 3D software and process engineering tools (PET) provider worldwide according to its PET Worldwide Outlook Market Analysis and Forecast through 2013.
