Exercise 7. Use the Basic Control Engine Extensions to Control your Process

Now that you have your blocks and carriers created 'automatically' by using BCE scripts, you can now move ahead to use a BCE script to control your process.

You will create a script that looks at the COLOR attribute for your block item and move it to the appropriate machine.

Say that

MACHINE0 is responsible for red and green blocks and

MACHINE1 is responsible for assembling blue blocks.


Delete the two buttons after the ROBOT_CONV region.


Create a single button after the ROBOT_CONV region.


Review the script for the Machine button.


Check your configuration in the TRK61 CimView screen.
