The Autopilot task is used to allow DriveWorks Autopilot to begin listening for new specifications that are made, through any DriveWorks Pro module connected to the same group open in DriveWorks Autopilot.
When Autopilot is running (see Start DriveWorks Autopilot below) each task Autopilot performs is logged in the main screen.
The tasks Autopilot reports on include:
The logging of the above tasks is dependant on Autopilot being set up to perform that task. See Settings for more information.
DriveWorks Autopilot will give generation priority in the following order:
Components Released before DriveWorks 15
Any components released before installing DriveWorks 15 will be generated before anything released after installing DriveWorks 15.
Please see Import Specifications for more information.
To start Autopilot click the "Start" button on the command bar.
To stop Autopilot click the "Stop" button on the command bar.
Tags are relevant when two or more DriveWorks Autopilot machines are deployed.
Tags allow control over which DriveWorks Autopilot processes the information required for a specification.
Tags can be applied to:
The Tag Editor determines which Autopilots can process the tags set in each of the document types listed above.
To launch the Tag Editor, from DriveWorks Autopilot:
The Tag Editor will open for adding tags to the tag lists.
The tag editor consists of two lists:
The two lists are accessed from the drop down box at the top of the editor (Priority list is the default).
To add a tag:
By default a DriveWorks Autopilot machine will process all tags.
If a tag is added to this list then that tag will be processed before jobs with tags not in this list.
The order of the tags in this list matters. So if you add:
then all jobs with High will be processed first, then Medium, then Low, then any other jobs (that don't have a tag in the blocked list)
The priority list allows tags to be added, removed, renamed and moved up and down the list.
By default a DriveWorks Autopilot machine will process all tags
If the Process Priority Tags Only is checked then only the tags that are in the Priority List will be processed.
So if your Priority list has High and Medium and a job with a tag of Low is specified then this DriveWorks Autopilot machine will not process that job.
This dictates which tags this Autopilot will ignore.
If a tag is in the Blocked List and in the Priority List then a job with that tag will not be processed by that Autopilot as Blocked List wins over Priority List.
To remove all information from Autopilot click the "Clear Log" button on the command bar.
