This chapter introduces the “OPC UA Information Model for Glass technology – flat glass”.
This Information Model provides the necessary ObjectTypes to model a glass machine interface in a structure as illustrated in Figure 9 There are ObjectTypes that are used to identify the machine (GlassMachineIdentificationType), to manage the production (Production Type) on the machine and to get the manuals for operation or maintenance (ManualsFolderType).
Figure 9 – Instance Example for “OPC UA Information model for Glass Machines”
Figure 10 shows the inheritance relations of the GlassMachineType and all direct children. In this picture the optional components are shown with a dashed line.

Figure 13 shows the inheritance hierarchy of all types used in the GlassMachineType’s Production component to the level of the JobType. The inheritance hierarchy of the subtypes of the JobType and their relationship to the different Materials is shown in Figure 14. This conforms to the structure of the section Production.
