Is it possible to temporarily jump out a sensor by forcing an output in the PLC

Would you force an output in the PLC, or use a physical jumper wire to temporarily jump out a sensor

It’s better to use software force than hardwire, in the software, we can add additional information at HMI/Scada that this sensor is in force on/off mode, so the user/operator is aware of it. Sow while doing this we must make sure that there is no other inputs/sensors which would be affected by the final output
