Part of the access of a higher-level system to a weighing system is the management of products. This standard describes a way of creating, editing and selecting products on the scale. The entire information flow via OPC UA can also run completely or in parts via different interfaces. The schematic structure of production management is described in Section 5.1.3.

NOTE: For recipe scales, this use case also includes the creation, editing and administration of recipes. Recipe management is based on the OPC UA Companion Specification for machine vision. The structure and concept for recipes are described in section 5.1.4 and Annex B.
