is a web application that delivers core database platform services and unique CAD System microservices for building and extending intelligent, web browser and mobile-enabled data and documents. The platform is designed to accelerate digital transformation by helping you quickly, easily, and economically deliver data and documents with minimal on-premise infrastructure. Based upon HTML5 standards, SOCKETWorx offers complete flexibility and control over your choice of LAN/WAN and cloud deployment.
Many Plant Design CAD applications, like CADWorx® PLANT and AutoCAD® PLANT 3D, are configured so they connect to SQL databases.
SOCKETWorx connects to these SQL databases and provides a modern web interface to access data and process it. User are assigned roles which provides permissions to accomplish tasks.
Access to CAD data centers common tasks such as populating datasheets, generating material take offs, data driving drawing updates, and marking up documents in a collaborative manner.
Users will adopt SOCKETWorx because it allows them to collaborate in accomplishing tasks using a modern web interface. They will start creating data queries, reports and otherwise consume and produce data to satisfy CAD Project requirements.
The SOCKETWorx 360 module connects users to the reality capture from 3D laser scanners. It integrates with Leica TruView Enterprise in a way to simply link asset database records to scanworlds and the geotags within them.
It solves the problem of finding assets in the realm of reality capture from high definition scanning. It provides users with one interface where they can easily search for assets and then access information, documentation and with 360 the world around them.
SOCKETWorx 360 provides the foundation to build data systems around facility assets for operations, maintenance, inspection, and technical services.
Consider the benefits of putting people into a facility from anywhere in the world by finding an asset record in a database. Together, this is the what SOCKETWorx 360 and Leica TruView Enterprise does for their users.
The Management of Change (MOC) module systematically processes Document Revisions Orders that are initiated by document markups and database changes.
Its built in workflow process controls revision orders from initiation through approval while tracking aspects like order status and priority.
It also solves the age old problem of managing change to data driven documents. For example, if a P&ID drawing is connected to a database, then many of the annotations are usually ‘data visible’. When enabled, SOCKETWorx MOC requires users to associated data visible changes a Document Revision Order which effectively captures all the changes being made during the document revision process. Moreover, it automatically archives all changes made for audit purposes.
Generally, users associate document revisions to an exist Management of Change (MOC) Number or and Engineering Change Notice (ECN) from some other source. SOCKETWorx is designed to accept this input and enhance existing MOC systems.
The SPECWorx module processes CADWorx® Project Files (PRJ) and makes them, and their contents, available to users.
Piping specification contents is presented in 3 SPECWorx views:
- Projects, lists all the PRJ files uploaded over time
- Groups, lists all the piping components group by size range
- Parts, lists all piping components individually
SPECWorx roles can permit downloading the PRJ files and their companion files such as Usershapes and Topworks. This service provides a piping specification delivery method via the web.
Piping specification can become the foundation for SOCKETWorx pricing catalogs, material inventories and more. See the Material Management System for more details.
Information Technology Solutions
SOCKETWorx will connect to any SQL or ACCESS database.
Plugging users into data silos enables them to view and query for information otherwise unavailable. Coupled with web browser access and the ability to change data, companies can streamline data population and modification processes.
Within SOCKETWorx Roles are used to establish security for each connection. In this way, user groups are assigned privileges like viewing, editing, extracting, etc.
Once users are assigned a Role they can easily access and switch between databases from their workstations, tablets, or even smart phones.
SOCKETWorx can incorporate all database tables.
Tables can be made active and then available to users, or made inactive disabling all access.
Once tables are made active, access to them is controlled by SOCKETWorx Role security settings.
Table security includes settings for viewing, editing, and exporting.
Users easily adopt global data views and data views they create on their own. Empowering users to query and organize data to their liking promotes system adoption.
Click the Edit button and user transition into Edit Mode, where they can modify data using many worksheet controls like formulas, fill down, copy paste, etc.
While in Edit Mode, SOCKETWorx monitors every modification. Once users click ‘Save Changes’, every previous and new value is logged creating the foundation for managing changes and notifying information stakeholders.
Extracting data to Excel workbook has never been easier. Click the Export button and they are emailed directly to users and anyone they put on distribution.
Excel workbooks can be configured on the export so they can be imported allowing users to work on data offline and sync whenever they are ready.
Report templates are setup so header information is completely configurable. In most cases, SOCKETWorx deployment can import legacy reports as templates.
Extracting data onto in-application datasheets is a very popular and purposeful feature.
Users can import Excel workbooks to establish datasheet templates or simply create the templates from scratch. They are associated to data tables and then users can embed table fields, static fields, and ‘special’ fields. All these fields can satisfy just about any datasheet content.
Datasheets have all the worksheet functions available too, so making calculations, replicating data, etc. is all possible.
Since templates are global, any changes will automatically update every assignment.
Users easily issue revisions individually or in mass using a multi-select feature. Either way, SOCKETWorx captures all the revision history and makes it available for every Datasheet.
Companies generate PDFs everyday and their consumers need immediate and easy access to them.
SOCKETWorx delivers PDF drawings and documents in a very effective manner so users adopt it very quickly.
Document control and user can organize files by connection, by table, or both, providing virtually unlimited groupings.
SOCKETWorx offers a modern interface to view PDF files.
It has all the markup and commenting tools users need to collaborate with each other.
Add clouds, sticky notes, highlights, and even customizable stamps.
All markups are centralized onto one canvas, so users see each others markups, comments and replies encouraging collaboration.
SOCKETWorx streamlines the management of change process associated with PDF markups.
Visible markups can be searched and filtered by document, by users, by type, and user specified tags
Users process markups by updating their status, adding comments, adding references, changing colors, and making invisible. When making them invisible, users effectively rendering markups complete, obsolete, or no longer relevant closing the loop on the markup process.
One or more markups across all documents can be processed at once, so users can quickly process them.
In many situations, PDF files are associated or reference one another. SOCKETWorx provides users the ability to attach one to many, or many to one.
This attachment capability can be applied to database records too.
Attaching PDFs to other PDFs or to database records enables users to quickly access them from the Viewer. Having them attached to each other helps in so many ways.
LINKWorx is a Worx Plugin and one of its features is to add SOCKETWorx hyperlinks to symbols and objects within AutoCAD and BricsCAD drawings. These hyperlinks make the PDF files published for consumption SOCKETWorx ‘smart’.
When publishing ‘smart’ PDFs from CAD the hyperlinks become embedded and highly functional within the PDF Viewer. User will click on them and SOCKETWorx will load associated data and PDF files so they can be quickly accessed.
