Italian term or phrase: forzamento punto
This is from a document about a SCADA system used in industrial automation. It appear in a section on an HMI package. The sentence is:

Generalmente l’applicazione utilizza una serie di pagine standard che possono essere utilizzate senza particolari personalizzazioni; pagine di diagnostica del sistema, pagine allarmi, pagine per il ***forzamento punto***, pagine di trend real-time e storici.

If it helps, the document contains a lot of references to digital and analogue POINTS.

Please help! Thanks

Nina, by the number of points, you gave me, I fell that the help I gave wasn't that helpful. I'm curious to know what a whole page for point forcing is exactly. Maybe you could fill in the glossary item and explain ;-), time permitting.

Thanks for your help - I went for "point forcing" in the end which exists in this very specific context.
