I've noticed P&ID is included in Pland Design Suites. Do you know how many Pland Design Suite components are required for them to be considered as a suite? I know you don't need to install all the components, which is why I'm asking. How many can I install as standalone products before they are considered as a suite?
Suite are a set of programs packaged together. The suite allows you to install individual programs and run those programs off the same license.
As long as you're installing the programs from an individual download (and not a suite download) you will not be using suites.
The advantage of suites is if you have several common program you use, and they're included in a suite, the suite price is lower than the combined prices. For example, buying Plant 3D, Navisworks, and Inventor is much more than purchasing the Ultimate suite.
Thank you. But if I install independally couple or all of the components, would a suite license cover these all? I'm wondering as I have 2-3 standalone products installed, could I cover them with a suite license.
This page lists the programs available in the Plant Design suites.
Yeah but if I happen to have few suite licenses, could I just use them to cover some standalone product installations? So how many standalone products would make a suite?
A suite gets one license for all the products. If you're not using a network license, you should install the programs on a single computer. If you only install 2-3, that's up to you, but you're still using one license no matter how many programs you install.
If you are using a network license, you are limited to the number of seats you purchase. For example, one person can use Plant 3D, Inventor or Revit Structure if there is one network license. A second person cannot start an unused program.
Suites get separate licensing.
How about if the suite isn’t installed but some suite components are present on a machine, how many suite components are required for it to be counted as a suite?
