This course is designed for those who have a need or desire for a good, general, overall understanding of Ovation™ system software and software utilities. This course contains and connects software topic segments from five different Ovation one-week courses: OV100-WIN, OV200-WIN-3.0.X, OV210-WIN, OV230-WIN and OV300-WIN. The topics covered include Ovation application functions; the Developer Studio architecture; point building; creating and modifying control sheets; creating and modifying graphics; backing-up MMIs including a domain controller; and adding points for collection to an Ovation Process Historian. This course is not intended to replace the five one-week courses directed toward personnel who have a singular need for the detailed knowledge provided in the one-week courses.
The course does not involve implementing any I/O modules. A sequel course, OV216-WIN, specifically focuses on I/O applications and is scheduled to follow OV215-WIN. The course duration is ten days.
