Abstract

A method and system for providing multiple control points for driving an exit routine is disclosed. The method processes a request and assigns a classification based on criteria and attributes defined in a configurable user file. The classification specifies a predefined action to be taken at an exit routine. The predefined action may override an action that is based on static environment values or a default action.

Method and System for Providing Multiple Control Points for Driving an Exit Routine

Disclosed is a method and system for providing multiple control points for driving an exit routine. The method and system disclosed herein provides a common mechanism of determining activation of an exit point. The method allows multiple control points for driving an exit routine rather than a simple on/off switch which is typical for exit points.

    The figure shows a flowchart illustrating the steps involved in providing multiple control points for driving an exit routine. When a request, for example, request "1", request "2" … request "n", is processed by the system, the request is assigned a classification based on criteria and attributes defined in a configurable user file. The classification specifies a predefined action to be taken at an exit routine. This classification-driven action overrides, in order of precedence, an action that is based on static environment values or a default action.

    Additionally, the method also allows modifying an action to be taken at the exit routine, such that a higher precedence action is taken instead of the classification-driven action. An operator command may be used for modifying the action. Furthermore, the method also allows undoing the effects of the operator command and dynamically reverting to the classification-driven action. Similarly, the method also allows negating the classification-driven action and reverting to the...
