In this three day instructor-led course the participants become acquainted with the internal mechanisms and details of WinCC OA. Typical subjects are: debugging, performance, communication between the managers and scripting “Do’s and Don’ts”. To derive a maximum benefit a current customer project is used as basis for discussion to show and discuss the used mechanism. Further subjects (like WinCC OA Add Ons or special functions) can be arranged previously with the trainer.
On completion of this course the trainee will have a deeper knowledge about the internal mechanisms of WinCC OA and therefore he will be able to handle more complex WinCC OA applications, including the functionalities of the chosen and trained WinCC OA add-on modules.
Explanation of all configs in detail
Project structure (use of sub projects, config files hierarchy)
Review and discussion of a distinct customer project (DPTs, configs, value archive configuration, graphical objects, CTRL-scripts – “Do’s and Don’ts”)
Analysis Tools: Reports, Debug flags, messages, CTRL script debugger, etc.
Up to two WinCC OA add-on modules may be chosen by the participants (depending on the remaining time). Available functional modules: CNS (Common Name Service), Ultralight Client / Script wizard, Web Client, Web Server, MS Excel Report, Recipes, Scheduler, Redundancy, Distributed Systems, DRS (Disaster Recovery System), Communication Centre, Driver (S7 and others), RDB (Oracle archiving), CTRL-ADO interface, APM (Advanced Playback Manager), Mass configuration / Multilanguage, Object Design, AMS (Advanced Maintenance Suite)
