The Module Database allows its users to create and store non-tag based informational models and link that data to PI tags via Aliases. This talk will discuss: Applying object-oriented modeling techniques to the ModuleDB; How different ModuleDB users may want to use information in different manners; How the ModuleDB can be used to represent multiple/recursive hierarchies; How "elarge"e models can be handled within the ModuleDB; and How the ModuleDB can be used to "esimplify"e Process Book applications.
