20.1 General ToC Previous Next

Production datasets are used for the configuration of machines. They are stored in files which can be exchanged over the network (e.g. between a machine and MES). This chapter defines methods and events for the exchange of lists of available production datasets and for the transfer of the files themselves.

NOTE: Transferred production datasets are always complete and consistent (includes data for the core machine and connected peripheral equipment, e.g. robot). As the production dataset files themselves are not standardized, a set of metadata is included in the ProductionDatasetInformationType (see 20.4.4).
