2 ACS Operator Training © 2008 Advanced Control Systems, Inc. Primary window components The title bar The menu bar The tool bar The drawing area The alarm zone

3 ACS Operator Training © 2008 Advanced Control Systems, Inc. The essential feature of the Drawing Area is the viewport: a window that shows the open document. Each viewport’s title area shows the display name and number that it represents. The Drawing Area supports multiple viewports. This lets you use one as an overview and additional viewports to zoom in on areas of specific interest. A viewport may be maximized to show only that panel in the drawing area for better viewing. The ‘tile’ button restores the previous viewport arrangement. >> Right arrow for more... Drawing area The Drawing Area is used to display your PRISM system menus; drawings and system maps and diagrams created using the DrawV vector graphics editor; indexes and summaries. This is also where you perform PRISM functions. >> Right arrow for more... Regardless of how your viewports are arranged, there is always one and only one that is active; its title area will be highlighted. Any action you take with respect to a viewport (e.g., zooming, printing, calling up a display list) will affect only the active viewport and will only offer options that are relevant to that viewport. To make a viewport active, click on its title bar or on the display itself, away from any objects in the drawing. Tile button

4 ACS Operator Training © 2008 Advanced Control Systems, Inc. Title bar The title bar displays the following information: # This is the system user (in other words, you) as logged into OI. The Device # is the device number of OI. Each copy of OI in the PRISM system has a unique device number. Host Name the host computer’s name. This is the system that you are accessing. Host Status Online, Offline, Standby, Islanded, or Unknown. # Host NameHost Status

5 ACS Operator Training © 2008 Advanced Control Systems, Inc. Menu bar Immediately under the title bar are the menus, which show the following options: Display, Show, View, Options, Tools, Reports, Windows and Help. When you click on a menu name, the program displays a dropdown menu. The most commonly used menu functions are duplicates of the icons on the toolbar.

6 ACS Operator Training © 2008 Advanced Control Systems, Inc. The tool bar This row of icons directly beneath the menus provides quick access to the most commonly used GOI functions. Although the tool bar appears to be a continuous row of icons, groups of them can be detached and moved to other positions.

7 ACS Operator Training © 2008 Advanced Control Systems, Inc. Moving tool bars Each section of the tool bar has a handle. To move a section, click on the handle (the vertical double bar at the left of the group) and drag it to the location you wish. To put it back in its original position, double– click on the handle. Click directly on the movie to play it again.

8 ACS Operator Training © 2008 Advanced Control Systems, Inc. Turning tool bars on and off You can also turn individual toolbars on and off: click on Windows | Toolbars and select the toolbars you wish to see by checking or unchecking their names. Click directly on the movie to play it again.

9 ACS Operator Training © 2008 Advanced Control Systems, Inc. Alarm Zone The Alarm Zone displays active system alarms until you acknowledge or delete them. It has three components: –the Alarm Toolbar –the Alarm Filters –the Alarm List

10 ACS Operator Training © 2008 Advanced Control Systems, Inc. Alarm list The Alarm List is a spreadsheet–like roster of system alarms, denoting, in columns: –the time that the alarm occurred –the location of the alarm, by station and point –the nature of the alarm and the relevant value, if applicable –alarm priority –an optional message TimeStationPriority Message Point

11 ACS Operator Training © 2008 Advanced Control Systems, Inc. Alarm list You can sort alarms by clicking on the column headers. This lets you view all the alarms for a station, or arrange alarms by priority, among other options. Columns can also be moved. Click on the column header and drag it the position you wish. Click directly on the movie to play it again.

12 ACS Operator Training © 2008 Advanced Control Systems, Inc. Alarm tool bar A row of icon buttons that control various alarm functions: silencing, acknowledging and deleting. Although the toolbar appears to be a continuous row of icons, groups of them can be detached and moved to other positions. Each section of the toolbar has a handle. To move a section, click on the handle (the vertical double bar at the left of the group) and drag it to the location you wish. To put it back in its original position, double–click on the handle.

13 ACS Operator Training © 2008 Advanced Control Systems, Inc. Alarm filter The Alarm Filter indicates which alarms will show in the Alarm List based on area of assignment and priority. This is controlled by a system–level setting; see your administrator for more information. The Alarm Filter shows the number of alarms visible in the Alarm List (the first number) and the total number of alarms based on the area of assignment and priority (the second number). The numbers will be not present if there are no alarms.
