Documentation of Production Processes with WinCC flexible

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)

During the every day production process various production processes are started and terminated via the HMI operator panel.

This includes:

  • general operator actions
  •  adjusting of production parameters
  • output of process values
  • output of process alarms

For a number of operator actions it is difficult in retrospect to assign individual operator actions and alarms to a certain process/batch.

The application is used to assign previously described points specifically to one “batch” in form of a “batch report” and hence document the “single” process.

A “batch report” (batch log) is required in many areas within industrial production, especially in the pharmaceutical, food and beverage industry.

Overview display:


The attached documentation contains a detailed instruction on how to realize the task.
The "zip-file" contains all required files to recreate the application.
