Puma5: new update!

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013

Release 2.5 patch 8 build 0

CLA released a bunch of improvements to Puma5 software last Thursday, 11th April 2013; keep on reading to find out what’s new with the software or log on to our Support Portal to download the technical specification.
These last changes refer to 4 main topics:
  • Composer and component catalogue
  • bug fixing
  • export to Elena
  • Material Requisition.
Composer and component catalogue

First of all, two new “composer sequence number (decimal)” and “composer sequence number (hexadecimal)” fields have been added to represent the “mark” code. These values are progressive number, independent from the project code, associated with each component when using the “component catalog upgrading” function.
Furthermore, Users can now select a new type of report, thanks to the “report type” control. These are the kind of reports you can choose from:
  • Type 1 (the report already existing in Puma5): data are grouped according to the operation type and to the piping class; they are organized per revision.
  • Type 2 (the new default report): data are grouped according to the piping class and they are organized per revision and operation type.
Bug fixing
The first problem solved is the error that would come up if, during the insertion of a counting, the selected line had no piping class code.
The other bug regarded the warning alerting Users about the corrosion thicknesses; it read: “There are 0 missing thicknesses into ‘corrosion allowance by project’ table”.

Export to Elena
Two modifications have been made to the data export to Elena:
  • the “BranchesTables.csv” file has been renamed into “PipeBranch.csv”
  • the total number of holes can now be exported.
Material requisition
The ‘Old’ field has been added to the form to show whether a component is not valid (‘Old’) for all the piping classes it belongs to.
Two new confirmation windows have been created to execute the delete functions. These new elements allow Users to differentiate the permissions to use the main form from the permissions of the two delete functions. When the installation is complete, permissions can be set on these two sheets:
  • “Projects – Material requisitions – Print / Delete – RDAD_Form – RDAD_delMR”
  • “Projects – Material requisitions – Print / Delete – RDAD_Form – RDAD_delRev”.

Puma5 interface for Smartplant 3D

Thursday, March 18th, 2010

some time ago we announced on our website that we have released the Puma5 interface for the Intergraph© SmartPlant 3D©, it was still a beta version for some of our customers to test, today we announce the availability of the product.

Some projects have already been developed by our custmers using our Puma5 interface and we think that is now ready and it will be a great benefit to all of our customers that are using or that will use SmartPlant 3D© in future.

The SmartPlant 3D© interface is simple and handy, the configuration is performed on an excel file and the components dimensions are handled through our already existing Dimensional catalogue module.

The configuration files are saved and used by the interface in XML format, this will give you a great advantage since you won’t have to worry about Excel licences on the server side, or crashes in the Excel engine while the process is running, the XML file uses the Microsoft XML file format.

Please feel free to contact us if you want to find our more.
