To create a machine within innius, go first to the machine list page and click on the button 'Add machine' in the top right of the screen. This opens the page 'Creating a new machine', with which two methods of creating a machine are available, basic and advanced.
The advanced method requires downloading, filling in and then uploading a Microsoft Excel file. This adds lots of machine related information in one go, but is the more complicated approach. The method for doing this is explained here.
The other way is to create a machine using the basic method. The simply requires filling in the Display ID and Display Name and clicking the 'Save' button. The 'display name' is what will be displayed throughout the web and mobile applications, so it is best to keep this as short and unique as possible. The 'display name' can be used to provide more detail, perhaps a reference name or number which is used within your company, but isn't appropriate as a display ID in the applications. With the basic creation method, other machine information regarding sensors, documents, shifts, KPIs and location can be added as and when is appropriate.
