Buildings

In order to be able to assign an installation location to points and lines, it is necessary to manage buildings in a separate form. The key information about the building, such as the address and assigned components, can be seen at a glance.
The form for the building is opened by right-clicking on Industry Model Explorer > Topography > Building.
