For database-based work, you first need to create an Enterprise project. If you are working file-based on the basis of SQLite, this step is omitted and you can start directly with the “Creation of a new industry model for SQLite projects”.
An enterprise project or workspace consists of one or more documents or industry models
Creating an Enterprise project
Create a new workspace using the icon in the button bar
or alternatively via the “Enterprise” menu item.
Then name your new workspace.
The “Create” button is used to create and open the enterprise project.
1. Create Industry Models / Documents
2. Delete Industry Models
3. Include existing Industry Models in the enterprise project or exclude Industry Models from the Enterprise project without deleting them
4. Determine the order of the Enterprise projects using or
Create a new Oracle or PostgreSQL industry model
Click on to create a new industry model and assign a name (and password, if desired).
Activate the desired modules.
Under Extensions, set the check marks as shown.
Under Modules, always select the TKI NET basic data model as well as all other NET modules that you have purchased.
A list of the available extensions and modules with an overview of the essential functions can be found in the following table.
|TKI Change Management

|Surveying Data Model
This is where you select the coordinate system for your project. Select the appropriate coordinate system under Spatial Reference ID.
Check the maximum easting and northing values for the usual settings in the selected coordinate system (for recommendations, see screen shot).
When you have made all the settings, finish the configuration of the industry model with “OK” .
A progress indicator visualizes the creation of the industry model.
Subsequently, the data model is created for the project.
Start the structure update with “Update”, which creates the data model for the individual modules.
If the message “3 structure update plugin(s) failed” appears, please restart the update. This may repeat the process several times until the message “Update completed” appears.
As soon as you have installed a new NET version, it is absolutely necessary to open the already set-up enterprise projects in Infrastructure Administrator and to execute the newly received structure updates.
This is necessary in order to keep the data model homogeneous with the new NET version.
The result is a newly created workspace.
Creating a new Industry Model for SQLite projects
In addition to the database-based variant, a file-based Industry Model can also be created based on SQLite. This is very well suited, for example, for planning projects with individual project participants or for the implementation and comparison of different planning options.
Creating an empty file-based industry model via File > New.
Make sure that you have disconnected from the database in advance.
Then the same steps must be performed here as when Setting up a new database-based Industry Model
Once you have initially created the Industry Model, you can save the dwt (drawing template) separately and reuse it for new projects. This allows you to set up new file-based projects without having to set them up again in the Administrator.
When working in SQLite files, note that you must save changes.
Deleting industry models
The deletion of industry models is only possible for unused industry models.
