This release adds features that focus on modernizing configuration, improving operator interfaces, and facilitating reporting. Benefits include reduced configuration time through the MDL Builder programming environment is designed to improve the way engineers configure the D/3 system's building blocks. Multiple engineers can work concurrently on a given controller for faster development and added D3Edit features are designed to ease sequence and batch language (SABL) program development, increase efficiency, and reduce application project hours. Operator workstations are now able to natively access information from the PI System and include the PI data in standard D/3 displays, reports, and trends.

Other features include the smart graphical objects (SGO) library, which helps facilitate phased migration with SGO palettes. The D3Express reporting module is designed to enable users to run and view reports securely from operator workstations and mobile devices. D3Express history is designed to enable analysts, auditors, and management to rapidly focus on key actionable information and troubleshoot events.
