The information model organizes nodes in projects. The main project node is the root node.
TIP: A node is any object, object type, variable, variable type, custom data type, or method in the project.
Node information model
The node information model indicates the set of nodes that describes the structure and characteristics of the node.
For example, a
Motorobject may consist of a
Statorobject and a
Crankshaftobject. Each of these objects can contain variables that describe their properties.
Project information model
The project information model is the information model of the root project node that includes every object, object type, variable, variable type, custom data type, or method in the project.
The name of the root node is the name of the project. The nodes may be organized into folders.
The structure of the project can mirror the physical structure of machines.
TIP: Structuring modular machines in an application as they appear in the physical environment makes it easier to manage them in the project.
