There are a number of different methods for selecting a recipe for production items. When a production line recipe is selected, it will also select the same recipe for all of the cells, cell groups or locations that are children of the line. This feature can be disabled by setting the EnableRecipe tag for the child production item to false. This is a feature that makes day-to-day selection of line recipes easier and mistake free.

There are two components in the Recipe component palette that allow for the selection of recipes for a production item.

Recipe Selector List

The Recipe Selector List component requires an equipment path to the production item and will then display recipes configured for that production item. Only final recipes for the production item will be displayed (see Master Recipes and Descendants for more information about final recipes versus master recipes). The list can be limited to only show a subset of recipes by using the Recipe Name Filter property.

End users can download recipe values using this component by right-clicking on a recipe and selecting the desired menu item. If this functionality is not desired, then the Read Only property can be set to True to prevent the select popup menu from showing. See Recipe Selector List for more information about the component.



Recipe Selector List Component



Recipe Selector Combo

The Recipe Selector Combo component provides a dropdown list that can also be used to select a recipe. It requires an equipment path to the production item and will then display recipes configured for that production item. Only final recipes for the production item will be displayed (see Master Recipes and Descendants for more information about final recipes versus master recipes). The list can be limited to only show a subset of recipes by using the Recipe Name Filter property.

The Recipe Selector Combo component does not provide options to allow a user to download the recipe values to the production item. This component is intended to provide recipe selection when using the other recipe components to edit specific recipes, view variance and change logs, however it can be used in conjunction with the system.recipe.setItemRecipe script function to download the selected recipe values.

Selecting Recipes with OEE 2.0 and Track & Trace

If your project includes Lot Tracking or OEE using our OEE 2.0 and Track & Trace modules, the downloading of recipe values to production items is handled by the Operations Segment Segment Recipe Name setting. Whenever the Operations Segment begins or is executed, the selected recipe values will be downloaded to the production item.

Refer to OEE 2.0 and Track & Trace for more information.



Scripting Functions

See Recipe Scripting for more information on using scripting to select recipes and download recipe values.
