1 Engineering Workplace, Redundant Aspect server, Plant Explorer..etc.
my question, is it possible / any options to use opeartor workplace in a separate PC and engineering workplace in a separtae PC.

In theory yes, but there are some limitations that by some may be interpreted as that you in practice only have one engineering "seat".
CBM engineering & download can be made from one arbitrary computer (only requirement is installation of CBM).
Also the operation and workplace engineering can be made from an arbitrary computer, even servers
Graphics engineering *may* require the only OPERATOR_WPL license seat available if faceplaces, alarm/event lists or trends are to be developed/configured (plain, graphich display engineering is excempted from license)..
- Operator Workplace and Engineering Workplaces are two different types of 800xa_Workplaces to access Aspect Objects.
- These two are not separately installabe. They will come along with 800xA. Meaning if you open the Workplace Application, you will find these two workplaces in the list.
- Operator Workplace is intended for Process Operators and Engineering workplace is for Engineers.
