Resource Properties for Objects

This task shows how to stop the creation of unwanted attributes every time you create an object.

Certain associated attributes are created every time you create an object such as item reservation, area, etc. These attributes cannot be changed by users of Plant Layout, but can be changed by users of some sister products. To view these attributes:
  • Right click on an object in the specifications tree.
  • Select the Properties line.
  • Click on the More button in the Properties dialog box.
  • Click on the Resource tab when it displays. This will display the properties associated with the object.

Even if you do not make use of these attributes, there is no harm in their creation. However, if you do not want the attributes to be created then follow the steps below.

1. Click Tools - Options, select Equipment & Systems under Options and then select the General tab.
2. Uncheck the line Automatic creation of resource attributes. Click OK.
