Step 6. Connect to Multiple Projects

About this task

  • Overview.
  • Configuration steps to connect to multiple projects.


You can run multiple tracking projects with a high degree of integration. This integration lets you create different models that are specific to a particular process that work together in a coordinated fashion. For example, you may want to:

  • Model different stages in a manufacturing process in separate projects, but still be able to track an item from stage to stage across project boundaries. This provides the flexibility to stop one project without bringing all of your production to a halt.
  • Model parallel processes in separate models while preserving a high degree of coordination between them.
  • Divide the workload among servers to reduce resource use on any single server.
Note: Tracker Base provides powerful multi-project support; Order Execution Mgt. adds to this functionality. This step describes the multiple project feature for both.

Possible multiple project configurations include:

  Configuration   Tracker Base Order Execution Mgt.
A Multiple projects on the same Server node X X
B Multiple projects on different Server nodes X X
C Viewer nodes (in addition to Server nodes)
Important: You must create a client record for the remote project for the local project to connect properly.


  1. Open the Workbench.
  2. Select Security>Advanced>Remote Projects.
  3. Create a new client.
