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, 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 Field Information Manager.
  • Share the project with others by import and export to file.
  • Create project templates with general settings, Device Packages and template
    datasets, and share the templates with others.

The Field Information Manager project management is available in Tools Menu - PROJECTS - PROJECT MANAGEMENT.
