(54)Subscription and notification in industrial systems


(57) Systems and methods that record information associated with proprietary processes in sufficient detail, to facilitate process optimization. A subscription and notification component enables tracking of various events, wherein each event can subscribe to a corresponding log (e.g., a diagnostic log, alarm log, and the like), and vice versa - to display desired items based on predetermined classifications. Moreover, access to both an internal data stream(s) and an external data stream(s) can be supplied via the subscription and notification component.
