This building block provides the capabilities to identify components of a Machine and have access to vendor-defined information about the components and manage user-specific information for the identification of the component.

Figure 9 gives an overview. The AddIn MachineryComponentIdentificationType with the default name “2:Identification” (as defined in OPC 10000-100) is derived from the MachineryItemIdentificationType and thus indirectly from the 2:FunctionalGroupType. It adds Properties and refines the semantics of the inherited Properties.
