Dear users and experts
I have a small doubt regarding working style in pro-e. Usually single person only do assembly.
Is't any possible to work multiple users in a single assembly?
Eg: I am going to design RO plant
In that we have 50 areas, in a single assembely multiple user can design at a time?
Could you set up the areas of the plant have connection points between the area and then put the areas together like an assembly? Is there different system with in the plant that can be designed independantly and the "assembled" together to the final plant layout.
I am not sure what an RO plant is? Are there work cells that can be designed independantly and then put together in the final plant layout?
Just some thoughts.
i accept this i too thinked same way.
Actually it's piping field job.
Eg: In single area we have civil work, structural,piping,supports,HVAC,Cabling.
Did multiple user can work in single area at a time?
i hope you understood. sorry if my english is not good.
the external simplified representation is just for that.
you have a general layout(top assembly)for the plan, than you assembly different work area (subassembly) at the proper location on the layout(top assembly), make a new assembly as external simplified representation of the top assembly for different department to design piping, cabling, hvac...
every department can work on their own assembly. You can control the access by give them the top assembly, so they can put the piping, cabling,hvac refering to each other , or you can limit the access of other department by hold the top assembly at your hand, and then you check the relative position, to see if modification is needed or not.
hope it can help somewhat.
Could you please say briefly?
I am creating plant.asm(top level), In that creating 5 sub assembiles like piping,cabling,civil,hvac,structural.
How i can control access by giving them top assembely?
how i can limit access by holding top assembely??
The individual departments would create their own assembly and insert your "master_plan" model into it. You Master_Plan model must be understood to be a read only file which will be purged if modified. In the same way, these departments could insert the other department's models, again knowing that they will change and should avoid building relationships to them.
Within departments, you would assign disciplines. People have to know what models they have rights to.
Are you using a PDM system to manage models?
