I think the runtime... Basically as the operator in the plant. We will have an operator tell us that M1234 is "not working". I would like the electricians to quickly find what HMI screen that motor is on to look at the faceplate to see the motor status.

In DeltaV, typing in 1234 into the search box brings up several things. It brings up a button to take you to the screen that motor is on, it brings up the control module where the function block programming is, and it brings up the I/O location. My understanding is that I can't do this with PLCs. However I would like to try and make a crude lookup for motor tags indicating what screen it's on, I'm thinking about trying to link it with an excel sheet.
