Part 5. CIMPLICITY Options

CIMPLICITY OPC Server provides a standards-based interface to some form of run-time data. The data may come from a specific physical device (like a PLC) or from an or Distributed Control System. The OPC Server conforms to the OLE for Process Control (OPC) 2.0 Data Access standards, a technology standard initially developed by a group of automation industry companies and now managed by the not-for-profit organization called the OPC Foundation.

Server Redundancy in automated systems, provides for switchover of functionality to a backup component in case of failure of a primary component. The switchover is considered automatic if no operator intervention is required. Redundancy applies to both hardware and software, and implies minimal loss of continuity during the transfer of control between primary (active) and redundant (backup) components.

Statistical Process Control enhances your ability to manage a quality control program by addressing the four major phases of quality control: measurement, analysis, improvement, control.

CIMPLICITY Web Server enables a user to interact with the WebView /Terminal Services server or Terminal Services server according to his or her authorization level. Interaction can be from Workbench only to total access to the Terminal Services server.

WebView gives a user interactive access to a selected screen or enables several users to view a read-only screen at the same time, using one license.

ThinView is a powered family of Windows CE products. These products provide you with a new level of capability either when you need a sturdier interface than current viewers provide or you need to move around a local or a remote facility while collecting and reviewing live data. The specific capabilities that your ThinView Windows CE device provides depend on the device you are using.




There are two distinct, yet interrelated pieces to Tracker: Production Tracking (PRT) and Routing Control Objects (RCO).

Production Tracking module monitors the progress of items through the production process.

Routing Control Objects performs routing decisions for enhanced production flow.


Order Execution Management


Order Execution Management provides a comprehensive addition to Tracker that enables you to track, store, categorize and sequence your customers' orders based on your configured criteria.

Order Execution Management includes:

XMLT tools take raw data orders, translates them into an .xml format and enters valid data into PRT and TADB.

Directory Watcher confirms that order files have completed downloading to XMLT output directory and moves files to the POMS input directory.

Product Order Management System (POMS) can be the hub of your Order Execution Management order management system. POMS is essentially a project that contains the basic configuration on which you can build your customized system.

CimView Order Entry provides order entry screens if you find that you have to manually edit an order item.

Tracker Attribute Database (TADB) stores comprehensive data about items, including orders and product components.

Range Source Architecture (RSA) enhances the traditional RCO concept of a the Tracker source (source region).

Tracker Query Engine is a powerful high level query engine that has its own syntax for forming queries.

It pulls data from both the Tracker Attribute Database and the Order Execution Management runtime memory map.

Queries may be named and stored for future use, or for subdividing and abbreviating complicated queries.

Order Execution Management Broadcast is the delivery of a configurable list of product related information (including at least build options, location information, other/supporting data and subsets of the unit bill of material) to plant floor devices and to suppliers.
