See Equipment Modes page and Equipment States page for various OEE Equipment Manager settings.

If the Production Model doesn't appear in the window, the Production Module may need to be restarted.

Changing Schedule for a Production Item

To change the schedule, select the production item (for example Line 1W) and then click the change icon. 

The equipment schedule list appears. Now select the desired shift (in this example Shift 1) and save the settings.

 The OEE Equipment Manager will now display the current selection as Shift 1.

Event Handlers

Event handlers provide the ability to add custom script when a user interacts with a component.

Fires whenever a bindable property of the source component changes. This works for standard and custom (dynamic) properties.

.sourceThe component that fired this event.
.newValueThe new value that this property changed to.
.oldValueThe value that this property was before it changed. Note that not all components include an accurate oldValue in their events.
.propertyNameThe name of the property that changed. NOTE: Remember to always filter out these events for the property that you are looking for! Components often have many properties that change.

Custom Methods

Custom methods allow you to add your own component functions to a component that can be called through scripting. This is a useful and clean method of re-using script that is specific to the component (say you want to update a visual aspect of the component in the same way whether a user clicks on the component or a window property value changes). See Component Custom Methods in the Ignition Help Manual for more information.


Custom Properties

The custom properties can be used to add user defined properties.
