A Machine Type is rule set used to define the behavior of a Machine. Which includes a collection of Machine States, Attributes, Downtime Reasons, Activity Columns and Triggers. A Machine Type can be associated with zero, one or many Machines. This allows for the logic of a machine to be managed in a central location instead of for every machine independently. Assigning a Machine Type to a Machine will dictate the logic that is used to populate the Machine Activity for that Machine. A Machine Type cannot be deleted when used by a Machine. A Machine Type cannot be restored after it has been deleted.
