Create your own page layout

A Screens page is made up of cells. Each cell can show one Screens component. Go here to read more about Summary of screens components

Start by adding the number of cells you want to have. Use the [+] and [-] buttons to add/remove cells.

Click the [+] button in any of the cells to select a Screens component for that cell.

In the popup that shows, select the Screens component you want to include for that cell. In this example case, “Measure point status”

When you have selected the Screens component you want to use, an instance of it will be created and assigned to the cell you selected earlier.

Basic settings on your newly created Screens component

When a Screens component is selected for a cell, the editor card for this specific Screens component will pop up. All Screens components have the same standard settings. Some Screens components also have additional settings.

(plus) Note that you can create a very well working Screens page with only very basic settings. The example below is based on this type of basic settings.

Connect a measure point

To connect the Screens component to a measure point,

  1. Click the dropdown menu arrow on the right side of the Filter row.

  2. In the new small popup at the bottom right, select Measure point in the list of data types (Article, Article run, Operator. etc …)

  3. Mark one or more measure points you want to visualize in this specific cell of your Screens page.

(plus) Note that some Screens components can only show data from one Measure point (for example “Measure point status”). Some can show data from any number of Measure points (for example “OEE”).

Define the time frame

Some Screens components (For example “OEE”) needs a defined time frame to show something relevant.

You can either select a time “Separate time span” or a “Relative time interval” (related to work shift or order run)

After you have selected time frame, click Save and close.

Separate time span

This lets you select any time span you want. It can be a hard coded time span (from date X to date Y), or a time span related to time or calendar.

  1. Mark the checkbox “Separate time span” (and uncheck “Relative time span” if it is checked)

  2. Click the dropdown arrow to the right on the Separate time span row

  3. In the time selector control that pop up, select the relative time span that describes the time frame you want to show.

Relative time interval

In RS Production Screens, a “Relative time interval” is related to either work shift or order run.

  1. Mark the checkbox “Relative time interval” (and uncheck “Separate time span” if it is checked)

  2. Click the dropdown arrow to the right on the Relative time interval row

  3. In the drop down menu that appears, select the relative time span that describes the time frame you want to show.

The pre selected time frame is “Current or last shift (whole)”. If there’s an ongoing shift it will show data for the complete shift. If there’s no ongoing shift it will instead show data for the last ended shift.
