We believe that a software system should be an extension of the user and that every action performed should reduce the need for that action in the future. KSX's templating system allows you to create nodes, node families, and attributes that contain all the powerful tools of KSX. These nodes at any level can be templated and copied. Templated copies are linked so that changes to one object are mirrored on all the others. Templates links can be created on similar nodes or broken when necessary. This design concept makes KSX the perfect platform for rapid design and deployment of expert systems in plants multiple production lines.
