|A line ID is a mechanism for
identifying and organizing segments and the components and equipment you
place in them.
You need to create a line ID before you can begin routing and placing
components and equipment. When you create a line ID, you also assign
characteristics: material, size, pressure attributes, heat tolerance and
The line ID displays in the specifications tree as an organizational
element. The routes you create and the components you place under it
appear in the specifications tree, and display as 3D images. The Line ID
appears in the specifications tree with the name you assigned it. Each run
segment you route will show as ArrRunX, X being a unique number assigned
in sequence. Components and equipment will show as YYYFunction.X, YYY
being a component name, and X being a unique number (i.e. PumpFunction).
To store line IDs that you create, set the default directory (as
defined in the Project Management Resources) for read-write file
permission. Contact your system administrator to add line IDs or
directories for line lists. Also see the Customizing section for
information about line ID catalogs.
