TPM Unscheduled Configuration

TPM Unscheduled Time objects are used to inform the OEE Equipment Monitor object about when and why equipment, which had been scheduled for production before, had to be unscheduled again.

This configuration object type can be created on a Site, Area and Cell level.

A fully configured Site Configuration object is required for this configuration object to work properly.

Creating a TPM Unscheduled Configuration Object

To create a TPM Unscheduled Configuration object, in the ISA-95 Equipment Model right-click on the intended parent object of one of the types listed above ('The OEE Demo Cell' in the example) and select Admin  New  TPM  Unscheduled Configuration to open the Create Unscheduled Configuration wizard.

Enter a suitable name and an optional description for the object. Then click the table icon for the 'Unscheduled Time Table' property.
