The ProductionPartType represents a part. A part is the workpiece of the machine tool which is treated in the purpose of the machine tool.

This may be for the purpose of machining, measuring or others, depending on the type of machine tool.

The ProductionPartType is formally defined in Table 34.

The Name is used to name a part in production in a machine tool. This name can be specific to the part (e.g. “MBL30/PartNo32001”) or to the type of part (e.g. “M8x10 Bolt Type 15”).

The CustomerOrderIdentifier is used to reference the customer order this job belongs to. This information often originates from an external system handling production organisation (e.g. MES).

The Identifier is used to distinguish and identify an individual part in production in a machine tool. It shall be unique.

PartQuality indicates the part quality. The PartQuality DataType is defined in 12.6.

ProcessIrregularity is used to tell if a process irregularity has been detected. A process irregularity might for example be the breakage of a tool, or exceeding a temperature limit on coolant. The ProcessIrregularity DataType is defined in 12.7.

State is an instance representation of the ProductionPartStateMachineType. It indicates the current state in manufacturing the part is in and the transition used to get into this state.
