Setting Up the Database Hierarchy for Walls & FloorsNote: This training manual assumes that the trainees have participated in the M6 Basic Steelwork Design and M18 Advanced Steelwork Design training courses.

ObjectivesAt the end of this session you will be able to: Enter the Walls & Floors Application. Create administrative database elements to organise and store the Walls & Floors model data in a logical way.

Must Know PointsAt the end of this session you will be able to explain: How to start the Walls & Floors Application. How PDMS stores Walls & Floors Design data. How to create appropriate administrative database elements for Walls & Floors

1-1

Setting Up the Database Hierarchy for Walls & Floors

How PDMS Stores Design DataAll PDMS data is stored in a hierarchical or tree format similar to the way you use a hierarchy of directories and sub-directories to access your computer files. All data is represented in the database as follows:

Each identifiable item of data is known as a PDMS element. Each element has a number of associated pieces of information that, together, completely define its properties. These are known as attributes.

Every element is identified within the database structure by an automatically allocated reference number and, optionally, by a user-specified name. Additional items of information that could be stored as attribute settings include:

Its type Its physical dimensions and technical specifications Its physical location and orientation in the design model Its connectivity.

Some attribute settings are defined automatically by PDMS whilst you may enter others during or after creation of the element. The vertical link between two elements on adjacent levels of the database hierarchy is defined as an owner-member relationship. The element on the upper level is the owner of those elements directly below it. The lower level elements are members of their owning element. Each element can have many members, but it can only have one owner. Whe
