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.
