Multi-Project Administration: Decentralized and Flexible Intelligence

Picture the scene: your production line is made up of four machines in a row. Their panels are already running on zenon but you don’t have an overview that brings together the information from all four panels on a single screen. The solution is simple: a zenon integration project. All you have to do is add your existing projects to an integration project using drag&drop and you're done!


  • Increased transparency and improved overviews
  • High performance
  • Simple maintenance
  • A high level of data consistency and less additional hardware requirements thanks to zenon’s redundancy concepts

Project division improves your overview and performance

The journey to creating a successful Smart Factory involves decentralized intelligence and a high degree of flexibility. In zenon, you can engineer smart structures without any hassle thanks to Multi-Project Administration. You can consolidate large projects into logical units and then put them wherever you want. You can even spread your projects over several different computers, which helps to improve performance and increase flexibility. This gives you a quick way to create complete control room projects and consolidate all of your sub-projects into a single integration project.


Decentralized project administration

zenon Multi-Project Administration goes beyond traditional client-server structures. Instead of using a central solution, it follows the principle of decentralization. This means that you can split a large project into several smaller projects in a package.


This makes enhancements and project maintenance even easier, particularly in combination with zenon’s object orientation. With this solution it is possible to edit and update individual parts of the project, leaving any unaffected parts alone. This is particularly useful in industries with strict regulations because it ensures efficient and affordable validation and revalidation.


Security is at the forefront of everything we do. In just a few clicks of the mouse, you can create failure-proof redundant network architecture. And, because the definition of server and client are not related to specific computers but are instead defined on a project basis, you can guarantee data consistency with less hardware than normal.
