How can we improve PI Interfaces?

Batch Framework Interfaces - Allow creation of only the Event Frame levels that exist on data source

The BES/MES sometimes contains recipes with no Procedure, or even Unit Procedure. The Batch Framework Interfaces should allow the creation of only the Event Frame levels that exist on the data source. This would need to be enabled with an interface configuration parameter so the default behavior is not changed on upgrades to existing systems. This enhancement would not be possible when writing to the PI Batch Database.

    Feedback from a customer that doesn't strictly follow S88 batch:

    "I totally support the enhancement request. With the current interface version, we have to socialize our end users to “ignore” the Unit Procedure placeholders in the PI Event Frames. Given the inconsistent timestamp reporting in which these Unit Procedure start/end times don’t always match the Operation start/end times, this will further add to potential confusion."
