Is it possible, to use one WorkProcessAddon for multiple processes.
Is it possible to change the ParCfg.ProcessNo and will it be updated or do I have to disable and enbale the addon?
From MES application side, they told me this should be possible.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Currently you can not change the process number (ParCfg.ProcessNo) of a WorkProcess add-on at runtime.
The term "multi process" can have different meanings:
From the fuel cell project there have already been other requests in the past to make the process number changeable in the PLC. Are you also part of this project?
Then it makes sense to make a meeting to discuss the current process concept.
Thanks for the response
Yes it's a fuel cell project. The idea is to split one process in several process steps including the numbers. In the past this would be only one process, but this should now be splitted. The result would be always with the same structure but it will be written in parts after every process.
Can you tell me who had the same request? Maybe I can come in contact with them.
So your use case would be like case 2. Especially because you always have the full result data structure, but you set only the corresponding part of the result data. Without knowing the detailed situation, my first answer would be: In this case you should add an add-on for each process.
I've been in contact with MES team of BaP/MFT.
