Resource Collection License
  • Resource Collections

Note: Resource Collections are a special type of container specifically for DNC Files and Packets(Operations). They also provide the associations to the specific Machine Tools that can use the contained DNC Files.

Each Machine Tool License includes two Resource Collections where the usual use is to have one of the Resource Collections hold the DNC Files for Downloading to the Machine Tool and the other for DNC Files uploaded from the Machine Tool which make them useful for segregating DNC Files Modified at the CNC.

Beside using "Resource Collections" for Machine Tool Associations they can also be used to segregate DNC Files according Customers, Jobs, etc.

Resource Collections also have special capabilities for Automatically Importing and Naming DNC Files and providing special processing of downloaded files such as placing a hold on them or deleting them. These can provide additional security & provide Time Savers for Administrators.

DNC Files, Machine Tools and Packets can easily be moved to and from Resource Collections and can be Associated & Unassociated with User Groups for efficient Management manually or using Drag(Internal/External) & Drop Operations.

ShopPacs Options

If you are using Packets as Operations you can associate these with Resource Collections which will then allow Shop Floor Users to be able to directly download DNC Files to Machine Tools and View any Documents, Drawings, Process Sheets, DNC Files, Quality Documents, etc. contained in this Packet.

To extend its usefulness you can optionally license ThirdPartyTools which would allow you to access external applications which, for example, could allow you to back-plot DNC Files, Apt Files, etc.
