Guide to Using ArchestrA Workflow with Wonderware MES . ArchestrA Workflow Software converts any time inputs in a workflow form to UTC time. certain issues can occur. These issues and their resolutions are addressed here. it is converted to UTC time and passed as 1p to the MES stateless API method. To avoid this issue. Following is a general description of the resolution. This situation can cause incorrect times to be stored in the MES database. if 6a PDT is entered in the workflow form. This resolution is demonstrated in the example procedures in this document. • Convert the input value from the workflow form for each time DateTime variable from UTC time to local time. DateTime By default. the MES stateless API methods assume that times are in local time.101 Appendix A Potential Issues and Resolutions When executing the test procedures. The time is then incorrectly recorded in the MES database as 1p local time and 8p UTC time. • Have the DateTime variables in MES receive values from these internal variables. However. you must: • Create a DateTime variable in the Start activity for each DateTime variable in the MES XML. For example.

The Variables window appears. In the Workflow Variables box. Next. To create a DateTime variable for a Start activity 1 2 3 With the workflow opened. right-click the Start activity and click Activity Properties.

Finally, make sure that you link the DateTime variables to their workflow form controls. The following sample Update Variable window shows two DateTime variables mapped to their workflow form controls.

When the MES Client and Middleware are in different time zones, the DateTimes do not work correctly between the two zones unless the workaround described in "DateTime" on page 101 is implemented on all the DateTime variables in the workflow forms.

Asynchronous Methods in the MES Stateless API Libraries
The Async methods (e.g., AddProdAsync, StartJobAsync, etc.) exposed in the stateless API libraries are not listed in MES - Workflow Connector. Therefore, a workflow cannot use the Async methods to initiate MES transactions.

MES Quality Modules
MES - Workflow Connector does not list the MES quality modules. Therefore, workflows are not tested against the MES quality module.
