Amatis App Challenges

Goal

Commissioning the Amatis system is an easy process when done correctly, but there are several ways to make this task more challenging and time consuming than it needs to be.  This series of exercises has been created to introduce you to the system, and intentionally make you think about different ways to complete the task. 

By the end, you should be able to perform basic app commissioning at any site.
