 Screen Monitoring with Traffic Light Display

Use

You can monitor the following objects for the Plant Maintenance and Customer Service application components on the screen:

  • Orders

  • Operations

  • Notifications

  • Items

As a planner, for example, you can clearly see which objects have actually already been processed, or where bottlenecks exist. As a technician, you can see in your worklist which objects should be processed and how urgently.
