Abstract

Assuming a number of PC's are personalized (configured with a set of setup values which is unique to each PC) by more than one operator using a single common setup value table which lists all of target PC's, this article describes a software mechanism to avoid duplicated usage of a setup value set by an operator, and to detect duplicated usage among multiple operators, by using a key data item defined prior to the operation.
