Building the Flow model is performed by right-clicking in the model view and selecting the structural element required:

The menu allows a number of options:

  • New Folder
Create a new Folder to group elements in your model
  • New Event
Create a new Event definition
  • New Metric
Create a new Metric to contain Measures
  • Rename
Rename any object in your model
  • Delete
Delete an object in the model
  • Move Up
Reorder folders to provide an accurate representation/model of your facility
  • Move Down
Reorder folders
  • Refresh
Refresh the model
   

Note: You can also use the Flow Zone toolbar to drag new objects onto your model

The result would be a model of your production facility. The model below is an example of a structure as per the “Juice Factory” Flow instance that you build in the Flow Training Tutorials.

Note: The Model can also be expanded by means of instantiating Templates. Model icons with a green hue means that they are instantiated from a template in the Template Tab.
