Several exciting new features have been introduced that provide enhanced capabilities for executing Brownfield design changes in the form of work orders. The following features work in tandem with one another:
Work Order Manager - Allows you to define a work order number, description, status, and other properties for a brownfield design project. The ability to import work orders from a third party system like SAP is also possible in this interface.
Properties Control - Allows you to assign work orders, bill of material documents, revisions, and other custom properties to components that are used in your design files.
Thematic Manager - Allows you to create and apply visual styles to components based on any property values such as work order. You have the ability to color code or change line types or even turn on or off the display of any components that match the filter criteria specified in the theme that you create. This makes highlighting design changes for a given work order straightforward and simple.
BOM Manager - Allows you to define bills of material for any given work order, document, and revision. You can add new parts or edit existing items. Validation checks ensure that your BOM data is accurate. With some customization required, you can submit your BOM data in JSON format to a purchasing system like SAP.
You now have the option of including Installation, Location, and Device Tags in your Excel import files to specifically identify a device that the I/O addresses apply to. When these fields are specified in the import file, the software will only apply the I/O text to the device that matches the ID specified in your import file.
You now have the ability to right click in the Symbol Text dialog and remove an attribute associated with the selected symbol.
You now have the ability to turn on or off the visibility of Cable Diagram conductor text using a new display setting found in the View>Display menu.
Several enhancements have been made to make inserting fields more flexible than ever before.
You now have the flexibility to specify even and odd wire numbering schemes when automatically assigning wire numbers to selected pages or circuits making it faster and easier to adhere to various electrical standards that require this type of numbering scheme.
An enhancement has been made to the Masts & Cables tab of the Lightning Protection dialog to make it easier to highlight the masts and cables that are used in the lightning protection analysis.
The Symbol Creation Wizard has been adjusted to a more vertical layout and converted into a dock panel that enables you to dock the wizard in the drawing interface and collapse it to a tab if so desired.
