Overview

Interop

This workshop from Sep 18th - 22nd is "the" event for testing OPC products for interoperability and preparing them for market. Vendors can test and debug their products against one another for interoperability, compliance and reliability. IOP workshops also provide an ideal opportunity to network with your peers, learn about OPC technology and interact with industry-leading experts.

Plan on debugging issues that occur and be prepared to modify your software components if required. Testing will be primarily for the successful operation between clients and servers; we will test for failures as time permits.

The OPC Interoperability Workshops are open to OPC Foundation member companies only at a cost of approx. €450 (US $500) per person. Space is limited to 40 attendees, so register now!

The 2016 IOPs were very successful, with several members reporting that it was "extremely valuable" in preparing their products for release.

Available OPC Technology For Testing

  • OPC Unified Architecture (UA) - Windows, Linux, Embedded

Provided Infrastructure For Testing

  • Local Area Network consisting of a standard CAT5 Ethernet cable
  • Internet access
  • Web-based application providing Test suggestions and for recording test results
  • Global Discovery Server

What to Bring

  • Computer (laptops are preferred) containing your OPC product(s) for testing.
  • Backup drives and/or restoration DVDs in the event your PC crashes.
  • Any additional hardware/software needed to conduct your testing.

Agenda

Interoperability Workshop Preparations

Attendees will be asked to specify their products in the OPC Interoperability Test Application in order to have more time for testing during the workshop. Instructions will be provided in the event payment conformation email.

Monday, 18 September

13:00 - 17:30

  • Network and Computer Setup
  • Verify Connectivity
  • Begin General Testing

We will start with network configuration. This will be done step-by-step with on-screen instructions. After successful configuration all PCs will be part of the test network. A "share" partition on the server will be used to exchange files, if necessary.

Introduction to the infrastructure and the test procedure:

  • All Servers have to be specified by means of a web-based entry form (general properties, supported optional interfaces, supported ItemIDs/Conditions, etc.). This test data will be available for the clients.
  • Clients will also use web-based entry forms to find available servers, view their properties, select them for testing, fill in test results, etc..

Tuesday, 19 September - Thursday, 21 September

08:30 - 17:30

  • General Testing

These three and a half days will be available for general testing. Every client has to perform an IOP test with every server of different vendors. Web-based forms will show the status with respect to available servers and clients.

From past experience, we estimate an average of one hour for each test combination.

Each client vendor must enter the test results for each tested server into a web-based database. The database will be available to all participants at the end of the workshop.

Friday, 22 September
