TPM Site Configuration

TPM Site configuration objects are required to connect other configuration objects for a Site (or subordinate levels) in the ISA-95 Model with Timezone Availability Tracker objects in the I/O Model.

This connection is a prerequisite for several other OEE Configuration Objects to work properly.

To keep track of the quality of the individual connections, each Site in the ISA-95 Equipment Model needs to have its own TPM Site Configuration object configured, even if some of them are located in the same timezone.

For redundancy reasons, several Connector objects which are available in the site context should be linked up to the matching TPM Site Configuration object.

This configuration object type can be created on a Site level.

Creating a TPM Site Configuration Object

To create a TPM Site Configuration object, right-click on the Site object in the ISA-95 Equipment Model tree and select Admin  New  TPM  TPM Site Configuration.

In the Create TPM Site Configuration wizard, provide a suitable Object Name and an optional Object Description.

Then click on the table icon for Timezone Reference.
