Intouch Wonderware Software 9.0
Wonderware enforces the use of its products with a software license. After you install a Wonderware product, you must install a single license file, ARCHESTRA.LIC, which contains your customer information, product data, and software features. Until you apply your Wonderware license, you can run the InTouch HMI only in demonstration mode.
The DXF File Viewer allows users to view Autocad Release 12 and older DXF files (only these versions) within InTouch. This software has been designed for the special needs of the MMI environment, such as bulletproofing and friendly multitasking. Since DXF files are loaded from disk at runtime, the viewer displays the very latest drawings, which may have been modified since the InTouch application was created. User can zoom in and zoom out or scroll the drawing in any direction.
This software is designed for just viewing DXF files within WindowViewer. If you are interested in importing DXF files from into your InTouch application for animation and editing, then you may want to purchase the Silent Partner Wizard Library 2.0 (#41237103).
The PLC Data Monitor is a diagnostic and troubleshooting tool which can monitor and change data registers in a PLC. This program can be used to test communication between your DDE server and your PLC, without actually running your MMI software or PLC programming software. Setpoints and data in the PLC can be changed without creating tags in your MMI software. User can type in any address in the PLC and view or modify its contents. The PLC Data Monitor can also be used to help debug your InTouch application by allowing you to view or change the value of any tag "on-the-fly" without creating animation links. Requires a DDE server for communication to your PLC. (Visit www.softwaretoolbox.com for a large selection of DDE servers).

4 1. Before You Begin 1.1 About this Guide Wonderware prides itself in helping customers reduce the cost and time of application development. In going a step further, Wonderware wants to provide customers from Food and Drug Administration (FDA) audited industries with a set of best practices in regards to the 21 CFR Part 11 requirements. This 21 CFR Part 11 Deployment Guide for System Platform 3.1, InTouch 10.1, and Historian 9.0 offers information on System Platform, InTouch, and Wonderware Historian features relevant to the 21 CFR Part 11 requirements of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). While not directly subject to regulation under 21 CFR Part 11, Wonderware System Platform, InTouch, and Wonderware Historian products incorporate features and functionality designed to facilitate the development of applications for use in FDA regulated industries. Accordingly, Wonderware has developed this document to provide customers with a set of best practices in regards to certain Wonderware products and the 21 CFR Part 11 requirements. Best practices suggested in this deployment guide, in conjunction with properly designed and implemented external procedural controls, should reduce cost of development, validation, and re-qualification of applications. However, please note that the methods described in this document represent general guidance and may require adaptation or modification depending on the needs of your specific system implementation. For optimum results, before applying the advice contained in this guide, consult a Wonderware endorsed systems integrator ( Auditing and security functions are tightly integrated with Microsoft products, and working knowledge of both Microsoft SQL Server and the Microsoft Windows operating system is required. It is assumed that you are familiar with administering a Microsoft SQL Server and using the administrative tools provided with the Microsoft Windows Server or Advanced Server operating system. For more information on Microsoft SQL Server or the Microsoft Windows operating system, see your Microsoft documentation. System Platform 3.1, InTouch 10.1 and Historian 9.0 are Wonderware s products for human-machine interface (HMI) software and a plant historian. They are based on Microsoft Windows and can be used to control and monitor processes in FDA-audited industries. Wonderware Historian is closely linked to Microsoft SQL Server. System Platform, InTouch, Historian, and procedural controls can be used to implement systems that comply with the FDA s 21 CFR Part 11 regulation. Readers should note this deployment guide is designed for closed systems. Closed systems are defined as systems where access is controlled by the people responsible for the content of the electronic records. Open systems are not addressed in the scope of this document. 1.2 Wonderware References & Documentation A PDF file for each of the following guides is typically available on the respective installation CD.

6 1.2.4 Notes on System Architecture Options Wonderware s software components can be used to design industrial IT systems using several architectures, according to the exact requirements of a customer. The choice of architecture can impact the best practices for designing an application to be validated. The Wonderware System Platform is a suite of products which provides a powerful and common framework for building industrial applications. System Platform integrates security, data quality, communications and alarming within an infrastructure of common services. System Platform also includes Wonderware Historian (formerly known as IndustrialSQL Server) for recording of historical data values, and Wonderware Information Server (formerly SuiteVoyager) as an information portal. InTouch can be used as a visualization client to the System Platform. InTouch can also be used in a stand-alone mode or as a managed application without System Platform, where the configuration data is stored in a tag database. Wonderware Historian is a component of System Platform, and can also be used in combination with InTouch tag based applications or in a stand-alone mode, for example when different HMI system(s) are already in place. Section 4 Technological Control describes Wonderware product features, according to the different architectural options, that support 21 CFR Part 11 compliance. 1.3 Other References & Documentation CFR Part 11 Documentation on 21 CFR Part 11 can be obtained from the following sources: Electronic Records; Electronic Signatures Final Rule, 62 Federal Register (March 20, 1997).
