About the CIMPLICITY Tracker Tutorial

This tutorial provides you with a snapshot of the options and procedures available for tracking a production process.

The tutorial takes you through configuration and usage of a sample process.

It will be most beneficial if you are acquainted with several of the CIMPLICITY features including point configuration, CimEdit configuration, Basic Control Engine scripting and alarming.

There will be links throughout this tutorial to more detailed documentation (that is not in the tutorial) about the topic you are reviewing or working on.

You will find that some pages in the tutorial provide you with detailed configuration descriptions, particularly when you might be unfamiliar with the configuration. Other pages suggest that you do the configuration yourself. (You can consult the next page or the appendix if you get stuck.)

Each exercise builds on what you learned in previous exercises. Therefore, it is important that you follow them in order.
