Project Management

ABB Field Information Manager Learning Center

By default, a project is created when you start the Field Information Manager for the first time after a fresh installation. A Field Information Manager project saves all datasets and manually scanned topology information. The Device Catalog with Device Packages, Fimlets and EDD files, is used by all projects that are available on the Field Information Manager client, but is also saved in the project file (.fimprj) as soon as a project is exported.

With a Field Information Manager project you can:

  • Continue the work on a project at a later time
  • Switch between projects if you are working on several systems with the same FIM computer client
  • Share the project with others by import and export to file

The Field Information Manager project management is available via Projects Tools Menu.
