EnterprisePlatform 2019 R2

EnterprisePlatform Operations Browser

The SSI 2019 R2 release of the EnterprisePlatform provides an improved method to navigate the Operations function, the Operations Browser.

  • After you have selected items in either Publisher or PublisherLT, clicking on the “Operations” button will display the improved Operations Browser.
  • By default, Operations are grouped by output type. For example, if you are interested in outputting a PDF or NavisWorks Drawing from a ShipConstructor DWG file, simply scroll down to select the required output format.
  • To view the list of Operations individually, you can simply remove the grouping condition.
  • Regardless of which view you prefer, sorting and filtering of columns is always possible. Sorting by ascending or descending alphanumeric order is performed by pressing the triangular direction icon.
  • Filtering is accomplished by pressing the funnel icon.
  • To change the view back to being grouped by output type, simply drag and drop the “Output Type” column header to the grouping bar.
  • Descriptions of Operations are also now available in the improved Operations Browser. These can be displayed by clicking on the “Show Description” toggle button, and then selecting the Operation you would like to have detailed.
  • Finally, to select an Operation, simply select it using the checkbox. Multiple Operations may also be selected in this way. To confirm these selections, press the OK button.

The SSI 2019 R2 EnterprisePlatform Operations Browser helps you navigate effectively within Operations to get the most out of EnterprisePlatform.

Operations Import/Export
EnterprisePlatform now supports the ability to export and import Operations files.

Note that your project must be EnterprisePlatform-enabled to use PublisherLT. Alternatively, you can explore PublisherLT and how to use Operations by downloading and EnterprisePlatform-enabling the SSI Training Project.
