This is being provided as an outline of the configuration changes made to the OpenPlantExample Imperial and Metric WorkSets.
These were created to show some of the typical changes made to the out of box WorkSets by our users. This certainly does not include every possible change, but it does provide the more common changes and will be a good basis and learning tool to help you to configure OpenPlant to meet your project requirements.
This was compiled by a global Bentley team of analyst, consultants, developers and application engineers who have industry experience, or have worked directly with our users and assisted them in configuration of OpenPlant.
The purpose of this outline is to give a breakdown of the changes made for the Imperial and Metric WorkSets located under the …ProgramData\Bentley\OpenPlant CONNECT Edition\Configuration\Workspaces\OpenPlantExample\WorkSets” default directory. Details for each change will be defined in other “How To” documents. This document will list the changes made for the following:
This document will also serve as a template for you to document the changes you make to your configurations. We cannot emphasize enough the importance of documenting your changes. When an upgrade is released, knowing exactly what you changed will provide you with an excellent roadmap to get you through your migration.
