This section will present an overview of the System Management and Project selection user interfaces.

When starting FactoryStudio, the first interface shown (image 1) is the Welcome page, which allows you to create and select projects, map to remote servers and manage the software license.

The navigation tabs present 3 sections, Projects (Project Workspace), Server and License.

Projects Workspace

This interface allows you to view the FactoryStudio projects in your computer, or remote computers, and create new projects. You can list your projects in many ways: the 3D View (Image 1), Card View (Image 2) or Table View (Image 3).

Each item shown is a complete FactoryStudio project.

Some very unique and powerful features about Tatsoft tools for project management include:

  • This Welcome interface is product version agnostic. That means you can manage and open even projects created with different product versions without the need to upgrade the project in the field or to switch the engineering tool in your computer.
  • Each project is a single file. All configuration, including tag definition, displays drawing, images and report templates is stored in a single file for easy management.
  • You can open multiple projects at the same time or allow multiple engineers to work on each project.
