237.13 Contract Plan File Name Convention

From Engineering Policy Guide

Jump to: navigation, search

A conventional method of naming contract plan files is a necessary part of the implementation of electronic plans for MoDOT. This file naming convention is a vital part of the ProjectWise document management system.


237.13.1 Design Contract Plans

The file naming convention for all Design Contract Plans shall be as follows:

[sheet#]_[abbreviated sheet type]_[optional sheet# by sheet type]_[job#]_[scale]_[optional description].dgn

The only acceptable characters will be capital letters, numbers, or an underscore "_". An underscore "_" will be used as a separation between items

[sheet#] is a sequential 3 digit number assigned to each sheet. There are two exceptions to the 3 digit convention:
  • First, for sheets #001 through #003, all Title Sheets will begin with the number #001, Typical Section Sheets will begin with #002 and Quantity Sheets will begin with number #003.
  • Second, for sheets with multiple borders (such as in cross-section (XS) sheets), the naming convention will differ as follows: The type of sheet will be followed by the sheet numbers. The following example shows cross-section sheets 011-015 followed by job #, scale, and optional description: XS_011-015_J0P0928_I5_RP1.dgn. There will be no leading numbers on these file names.
After sheet(s) #003, sequential numbering shall continue with no duplicate numbers. If a sheet (or sheets) need(s) to be inserted, a sequential letter will follow the number (004, 005, 006, 006A, 006B, 006C, 007, etc.). If more than 26 sheets are required to be inserted, the designer should consider renumbering all contract plans from the insertion point forward.
[abbreviated sheet type] is the 2 lettered abbreviation, identifying a particular kind of sheet (i.e., QU=Quantity Sheet, PP=Plan-Profile Sheet, etc.). These abbreviations are also used in the Index of Sheets on the title sheet and must match.
[optional sheet# by sheet type] is an optional 2 or 3 digit number, assigned by a designer, within a particular sheet type (i.e., EC_01, EC_02 would be the 1st and 2nd Erosion Control Sheets).
[job#] is the job number as assigned by the district (i.e., J0P0928).
[scale] is the scale the MicroStation border was created in for a particular drawing (i.e., I1, I100).
[optional description] is a description added by the designer to quickly identify components of a project that need to be identified (i.e., STAGE1, 54THSTREET, etc.).

237.13.2 Electronic Design Data

File naming convention for electronic design data files generated from GEOPAK for Roadway Contract Plans shall be as follows:

Final Engineering Design Data:[job#]_[optional description].rdp

237.13.3 Bridge Contract Plans

The file naming convention for all Bridge Contract Plans shall be as follows:

[B]_[bridge number]_[sheet#]_[job#].dgn
[B] is the letter “B” for Bridge.
[bridge number] is the bridge number (i.e., A7005).
[sheet#] is the number of a particular sheet unique to a bridge number.
[job#] is the job number as assigned to the project (i.e., J0P0928).
[optional description] is a description of the sheet information (i.e., BARBILL, FRONTSHEET).
