Non-serialized Items: Guidelines

PRT provides the reserved Item type $UNKNOWN, which can be associated with a non-serialized item at the start of production.

Guidelines that must be followed when using this association are:

The association can only take place when a non-serialized Item passes a transition indicator.

The transition indicator must be configured as an Item type detector.

A CIMPLICITY Point must be configured to report positive identification of the Item type.

An application interface message can associate a non-serialized Item with an unknown Item type.

The Item type of the non-serialized item must be identified later in the production process.

Unexpected Item errors will apply to Non-serialized Items. (Out of sequence errors will apply to Serialized Items only.)
