Workshop for Developers 1: Plant Layout Application

Tutorial Overview

The Plant Layout Application is a sample application showing how the ThingWorx Manufacturing Apps suite can be extended to build custom apps. In this tutorial, we took a sample plant layout image and positioned the different lines and assets in corresponding spots to give a visual cue. We are overlaying the assets statuses and other metrics on top of the layout to provide the statuses of different lines and assets:

Developers can take this sample application, add their own layouts for each of their plants or lines and provide a user interface for Plant Managers and others providing a comprehensive view of one or more plants/lines. This example along with other configuration videos/documents will demonstrate how quickly applications can be built using the Thingworx Manufacturing Apps.

Getting Started

Step 1 - Download the Plant Layout Package

Step 2 - Inside the Plant Layout Package, open the “Plant Layout Application Installation and Configuration” document and follow the instructions.
