Symphony Visualization App

Overview

The Symphony Visualization App is the interface that stands between the operators and the process. This is the primary tool by which operators and line supervisors coordinate and control the industrial and manufacturing processes in the plant. Symphony Visualization App offers customizable, flexible and user-friendly user interface, getting information from the shop floor level. In an ordinary Symphony installation, it is supposed to get inputs from Symphony components, but in general it can be configured for receiving data from any factory connector, under certain conditions (i.e. the data format). The Visualization App gets data through a southbound RESTful interface, and relies on ontology and semantics used in the Symphony platform such as SAREF and SAREF4BLDG, plus some extensions to provide part of its functions. Therefore, the app will be able to provide views for any factory connector that exposes a compatible REST interface. At the time of writing of this document, this component has some dependencies with some of the Symphony components, thus it needs some development in order to be decoupled from the platform and become ready to be integrated in the EFPF ecosystem.

Configuration

Since the component is part of the Symphony Platform and it is not decoupled yet, the configuration is possible through Symphony Platform. User can configure the required information for getting the data from southbound REST interface. Furthermore, user can create graphical panels and HMI interfaces with ready to use objects library and bind them to the data coming from ICS.

Operation

Symphony Visualization App is a part of Symphony Platform and as mentioned before it still has dependencies to other Symphony components. After deploying the platform, the Visualization App is up and ready to use.
