AASOperationType is defined in Table 38. It encapsulates the standard OPC UA Method “Operation”. All rules for the OPC UA Method NodeClass declaration apply. “Operation” is defined without Arguments but with the OptionalPlaceholder ModellingRule. As defined in OPC 10000-3, this rule allows the inclusion of Arguments to this Method on sub-types or on instances.
