The Operating Mode changes how the services execute commands. Once gaining control of subsystem, Operator Control broadcasts Set Operating Mode messages. The components, which implement Operating Mode services, set the operating mode accordingly. Note that Operator Control (the client) needs to have access control of the components before the Operating Mode can be set.
The Operating Mode can be set to Standard Operating, Training, and Maintenance. Services execute the commands according to the Operating Mode.
