Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR DIAGNOSING AUTOMATION SYSTEMS
Abstract:
The disclosure is directed at a method and system for diagnosing automation elements. The method and system include the determination of a trigger condition or event within operation data received from the automation elements. Based on the trigger condition or event, feed-back data captured by data collection devices is tagged and stored and/or captured and stored for review by an end user. The feed-back data may be stored together with associated operation data to assist in identifying faults, the causes of faults, or the like in the automation elements, in the products produced, or in the manufacturing process or overall manufacturing system.
