the substantially restriction of an Application license is that the user cannot develop controls with the programming language SimTalk.
The objects which are needed for a special kind of material flow simulation must be prepared Application objects. Such Application objects are usually frames containing some basic objects. Connections to basic objects, like SingleProc or ParallelProc, are possible via the Interface object. The Application object can contains objects Methods, which are used as controls of thematerial flow. But the user with an Application license cannot open these Methods objects. Therefore the developper with the Standard license must prepare a good documentation for the user with the Application license, such that he will understand the special properties and behavior of the Application objects.
A typical workflow with an Application license is the modeling of a simple material flow simulation consisting of a Source, some SingleProcs and a Drain. The usage of the ExperimentManager is possible.
If the customer has an application license, he has no problem to access a model created in a higher level (Standard of Professional), but he will be restricted to the functionalities of the application license - i.e. cannot add methods.
With the new release of Tecnomatix 11 TR1, an owner of a professional license, can encrpyt simulation models and create "restricted models"
That is, even if the customer has a standard or a professional license, he might not be allowed to modify, or look into the details of a "restricted model", if this is what the author chose to define.
With this approach, solution partners and customers can protect their intellectual property
