Building Device Template Library to Simplify HMI Library System

Posted in Automotive, HMI and SCADA, Manufacturing Automation and Intelligence


DMC helped a client in the automotive industry develop templates for monitoring and controlling devices. The templates can be quickly and easily transferred to other HMI systems.


DMC’s client in the automotive industry required a template library for their devices. They provided DMC with the structure of the tag they needed to interface with the template. DMC then helped to incorporate the elements of the tag structure into template.

DMC actively collaborated with developers and interfaced with machine builders, floor teams and IT managers to ensure they met the client’s goals. Using Ignition Templates, Ignition Face Plates, and OPC UA Communication, engineers implemented a solution that was time-efficient and user-friendly.

The resulting template library allowed the client to drag and drop templates onto an HMI screen and gain access to a particular path. This solution allowed the client and their contractors to save time creating HMI screens.
