To save development and engineering hours when creating process components in the mimic, IGSS offers the unique template functionality. If the plant is characterised by the same type of equipment in several different locations, the time-consuming task of repeatedly designing the same representation of the equipment is avoided by first designing a template for the equipment where all its characteristics are defined.
Once the template is in place in the configuration, all subsequent representations of this type of equipment are created on the basis of the template. Countless design hours are shortened and human design error is held to a minimum.
The templates can be created for all four object types: Analogue, Table, Counter and Digital. These object types cover the majority of components present in any given process.
