I have a requirement where my customer does not want to add in an additional custom status message and would like to edit the 6 built in categories to suit their needs.
Configuring and Customizing Equipment Status
Equipment status indicates the current state of a piece of equipment. The status is used for calculating KPIs and can also be used for defining alerts. The status history information for a piece of equipment is stored in the database, rather than in the equipment’s value stream.
There are six statuses initially configured for all equipment:Not Configured,Warning,Running,Planned Downtime,Unplanned Downtime, andUnavailable. Three additional custom statuses are available to be configured and enabled in order to align the status model inThingWorxwith the actual statuses that need to be tracked across the factory or site. For more information, seeConfiguring Equipment Statuses.
