1 Engineering Documents Manager – EDM An assistant to process large engineering Excel, PDF and Word files easily and efficiently

2 Engineering Documents Manager – EDM Overview Functions and operations Open a new job and load related files to EDM database Modify Excel files Audit Excel files Create Excel files Search related information between Excel and PDF files Search related information between Excel and Word files Get statistics from different files Explore and manage all files in a EDM job

3 Overview Goal:Provide an unified software application to process Excel, PDF, Word and other files. It helps project engineers (especially instrumentation control engineers) to easily and efficiently process large engineering Excel files. Allows project engineers to get with one click all information needed for design or configuration, also helps EPC engineers and designers to provide a high quality work package. Functions: Audit and modify engineering Excel files; create new engineering Excel files; customized search from related Excel, PDF and Word files; Get various statistics from different Excel files; Explore and manage all files in EDM job.

4 Open a new job and load related files to EDM database Project engineers and designers usually process different engineering files for different tasks at different times. In EDM we call these tasks jobs. When you start a new job in EDM, you will be asked to name the new job and load related Excel files to EDM Database first. For demonstration we created four Excel files with one sheet each. They are Test Alarm Assignment.xls, Test External Cable.xls, Test Instrument Index.xls and Test IO Assignment.xls. We open a new job named Job For Demonstration, and load the four Excel files to EDM Database.

5 Open a new job and load related files to EDM database Loaded and opened Test Instrument Index.xls in first file folder of EDM Detail information of each record or row

6 Open a new job and load related files to EDM database Loaded and opened Test IO Assignment.xls in second file folder of EDM Back To Menu It shows how many columns and rows in this Excel file

7 Modify Excel Files Loaded and opened Test External Cable.xls in modifying file folder of EDM EDM provides wide choices for project engineers and designers to modify Excel files easily Next slide will show modified Cable Names Different modifying functions for different purposes

8 Modify Excel Files Modified Test External Cable.xls in modifying file folder of EDM Cable Names in Test External Cable_Test Cable have been modified Back To Menu Modified Cable Names

9 Audit Excel Files It costs lots of time and human resource to find minor errors or incomplete data in large engineering Excel files. In order to help project engineers to find it easily and help designer to provide a high quality work package, EDM provides two auditing operations. One is general auditing: it is designed for general Excel files in all fields, such as finance, insurance, construction, engineering… The other is professional auditing, designed for instrumentation control engineering Excel files. In general auditing, EDM will check the key columns for missing data. In addition, EDM will check the key columns for differences in data between sheets.

10 Audit Excel Files This slide shows the setup in EDM to check for differences in the same columns between Test Instrument Index and Test IO assignment. Following slides will show you Excel and Word report of auditing result To check if IO Type Name, System, PID Drawing and Instrument Module have different data in Excel files Test Instrument Index and Test IO Assignment

11 Audit Excel File This slide shows Excel report of general auditing result Found potential conflicts or mistakes of same column in different Excel files marked with red underline Column System in two Excel files

12 Audit Excel Files This slide shows Word report of auditing result From Word report, you can know: 1.Operation description 2.Source and result files 3.Operation result 4.Location of report file

13 Audit Excel File The second audit option is professional auditing. Professional auditing can check: Potential conflict between Tag Number and Loop Name Potential conflict between Tag Number and IO Type Name Potential conflict between Tag Number and Location Potential conflict between HH Alarm and Hi Alarm Potential conflict between LL Alarm and Lo Alarm Potential conflict between High Alarm and Low Alarm And more…

14 Audit Excel Files This slide shows the setup for professional auditing to check for potential conflict between Tag Number and IO Type Name To check the potential conflict between Tag Number and IO Type Name in Excel file1 Test Instrument Index

15 Audit Excel Files Excel report for professional auditing for potential conflict between Tag Number and IO Type Back To Menu Found potential conflicts or mistakes marked with red text

16 Create New Excel Files Another highlight of EDM is the ability to help project engineers and designers to create a new Excel file easily The following demonstrates the ease to create a new Excel file in EDM. In this example EDM will create a new file with 5 columns. Setup in this example is: Created New File Name: Created by EDM for Demonstration Create New File by New Rule New Rule Name: The Rule for Demonstration In this example EDM will use rule The Rule for Demonstration to automatically create the new file Created by EDM for Demonstration with five columns: Column 1 is directly from File1 column1 Column 2 is directly from File2 column2 Column 3 is related to File1s column 3 and File2s column 3; these two column value joined together by customized string This string is added by user and between File1 col3 and File2 col3(typed by customer) Column 4 is a simple column with customer typed string This string is added by user for column 4 Column 5 is without data in purposely

17 Create New Excel Files The setup for this example to create a new file named New File Created by New Rule for Demonstration with five columns It is so easy to create a new file that you only need to do: 1.Give names to new file, new rule and new columns 2.Choose how to get data for new column 3.Type customized string for new column if it needs 4.Click Add New Column and Create New File buttons

18 Create New Excel Files The Excel report for created new file named New File Created by EDM for Demonstration This is created new file in EDM Database format; next slid will show its Excel format

19 Create New Excel Files The new file named New File Created by EDM for Demonstration is opened in MS Excel Back To Menu Created new file will automatically be exported to Excel format from EDM Database

20 Search Information Between Excel and PDF Files EDM has integrated the ability to process PDF, MS Word and Excel files in one software environment. Given to this project engineers and designers can search information which is related PDF and Excel files easily and efficiently. They can search any data of any column in File1 or File2 in any PDF file on same screen by double click. Double click any cell, immediately get what you want in PDF

21 Search Information Between Excel and PDF Files Search any customized text in any PDF files, and get search result list on same screen. Back To Menu Search customized text description of tag, and get search result list here

22 EDM provided three powerful search functions for project engineers or designers to search information between Excel files and Word files easily. They are: 1.Search any information of any Excel file in any Word file 1.Open a Word file in EDM, select one Excel file 2.Double click any cell, get what you want immediately in opened Word file 2.Search customized text in opened Word file 1.Type customized text in search box 2.Click search button 3.Directly search description for any Tag Number in control narrative or philosophy 1.Open a control narrative or philosophy Word file in EDM 2.Choose Connect Control Narrative With Tag No. In File1 or File2 3.Click Connect Control Narrative To Tag Number to build a interconnect between Tag Number and control narrative by adding two new columns to Excel file. One is Control Narrative Document name; the other is page number on which the most description about related Tag Number is. If you did not do this operation yet. 4.Choose Tag Number to search, and click Go To Page button Search Information Between Excel and Word Files

23 1. Search any information of any Excel file in any Word file Search Information Between Excel and Word Files Double click any cell, immediately get what you want in Word file

24 2. Search customized text in opened Word file Search Information Between Excel and Word Files Search customized text description of tag, and get its location in Word file

25 3. Directly search description for any Tag Number in control narrative or philosophy Back To Menu Search Information Between Excel and Word Files After building a interconnection between Tag Number and control narrative or philosophy Word file, click Go To Page to find it quickly

26 EDM provided various statistical operations for different purposes, and classified in three group Get statistics from different files A. Get statistics based on two selected columns have same or different value in two files This operation is very useful to find the difference and similarity between two different versions of same files. B. Get statistics based on one selected common columns value between two files This operation provided a possibility to get cross statistics from different files C. Get statistics based on one selected columns value in one file This operation can pickup any typical records in one file.

27 Get various statistics based on different operations for different purposes Get statistics from different files Back To Menu

28 Explore Job Tree to see a big and whole picture of the job Explore all files in the job from Job Tree From Job Tree, you can know: 1.How many Excel files have been loaded in the job 2.Which file is in First or Second file folder 3.Which file is under modifying 4.Excel report of auditing 5.Created new Excel files in the job 6.Opened PDF and Word files 7.Statistics and files in the job

29 Delete or export files in job from job tree Manage all files in job from Job Tree To delete or export a file in EDM job by right click to call up the popup menu
