Hi,

I am creating five new Applications in OPC for five lines of business.
Please suggest which of the options will be efficient:
1. Send files of each Application in the same Application.
2. Collect the files from each Application and send all the file from a different Application.

My view is - second option is better as we can send all the files in one C:D job, hence repetitive call to C:D utility is avoided for each application.

Regards,
Vikas C

the time spent <sending> files will depend only on the file size and network traffic.

IMO when dealing with automation the point to be taken into account is the
<process> isolation/uncoupling

an application should be considered complete when the files have been sent

since point two creates an implicit dependency between the five applications
You will have a ALL or NOTHING

in consultese
point 1 is effective .. ( QUALITY, QUALITY, QUALITY )
point 2 MIGHT be efficient, it will not save too much time anyway

Point 2 is a successor of 5 applications. If for example one of the 5 applications goes into error data transmission for 4 applications has to wait.
So i would go for point 1.
