Task  
In plants requiring validation it is important that all operator actions are recorded and that they can be assigned to the corresponding operators. In addition, there is the demand for “location-independent access to process data”.

A plant is to be operated with an operator panel. All relevant operator actions have to be recorded. In addition, it shall be possible to remote control the operator panel from a second operator panel.

Solution  

WinCC flexible/Sm@rtAccess
The WinCC flexible/Sm@rtAccess option enables client or server accesses from one panel to another. This is how the devices are "remote controlled“.
The current process values can be accessed plant-wide and their archiving and analysis can be provided. With the Sm@rtAccess option you relieve your field busses and you use a flexible solution for location-independent access to your plant.

WinCC flexible/Audit
The WinCC flexible/Audit option enables the recording of all relevant operator actions of an operator panel.
Storing the production data in electronic form offers many advantages compared with paper documentation, such as the simple recording and archiving of data. However, at the same time it has to be ensured that the data is forgery-proof and can be read at any time.

If two options are combined, the requirements to an application requiring validation are not fulfilled since there is no interlock for “remote control/remote service”.

The application example shows you a way how you can use the two options together. In addition to the use of the two options, server and client are synchronized through the SIMATIC HMI HTTP protocol.
Via this additional “service canal” the basic connection establishment and the interlock for the “remote control” takes place.
