The Analyzing PI System Data course is data oriented concentrating on viewing the PI System data, combining PI System data with other data, and creating reports allowing the analysis of the data through Business Intelligence (BI) tools. This class will teach you about different clients and tools to view your PI Data. Learn how to import PI System Data through the PI Integrator for Business Analytics and PI OLEDB Enterprise, and merge it with external data to create easy-to-read reports, reduce reports associated with related data, and publishing reports allowing easy sharing and ensuring one version of the truth being the focal point. The class will cover aspects of the following tools; PI Integrator for Business Analytics, PI OLEDB Enterprise, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft Power BI. If you feel like writing business reports is too difficult, this may be the course for you. We will build upon your existing application knowledge with hands-on activities to help you slice and dice your business data.

The class is 3 days long. Class will start promptly at 8:30am (9:00am in Europe, Singapore, Australia and New Zealand) and is scheduled to end at 4:30pm with a one-hour lunch break. When making travel arrangement for the class, please plan to remain on site to the completion of the final exercise. This should be no later than 4:30 on the last day of the class.



In this online course, you will expand your knowledge on PI ProcessBook to interpret your process data in a deeper and more organized way. This is a follow-up course to the Building Basic Displays with PI ProcessBook online course and will cover more advanced topics such as creating workbooks, data sets, XY plots, and SQC charts. You will be introduced to the PI AF Display Builder and will find out how to present your data in an organized format beyond just displaying values.

In this online course, you will learn the skills needed to successfully model your processes and equipment using Asset Framework (AF). This course discusses the methodologies needed to build representations of assets (AF Elements) and their associated data (AF Attributes). You will see how elements and attributes help users successfully organize assets into hierarchies and unify data from multiple sources, such as real-time data from the PI Data Archive, metadata from relational sources and calculated data from AF formulas.

Through online videos and hands-on practices, you will learn how to templatize elements and add Units of Measure (UOM) to standardize models across different assets or units of an organization. By the end of the course, you will be able to leverage templates to scale models out and compare like assets using OSIsoft client tools.

Note: Learners are encouraged to use their own software and their own data structures. This allows each learner to leave the course with something immediately valuable in their enterprise.

The Building PI System Assets and Analytics with Asset Framework (AF) class provides a working knowledge of the power of the AF Server, an integral part of the PI System. You will learn to define consistent representations of organizational assets and/or equipment and use these representations in simple or complex analyses that yield critical and actionable information. AF allows an application designer to identify and customize the components or elements that make up a process, associate real-time, relational or calculated data with these elements, specify organizational structure via hierarchies or connectivity relationships, and apply calculations or rules against these assets and determine how results should be displayed.

In this class we discuss and build basic AF elements and attributes, construct calculations, and configure relational database queries. In a simulated environment, Asset Analytics are used to calculate metric data for the Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE). We see how Event Frames are applies to monitor the production process for downtime situations and for process excursions. We explore the visualization of the information with different products of the PI Visualization Suite. In the advanced exercises we discuss combining the various elements to provide users complex information structures. We will build connections to relational databases and use that information in displays and analytics.

Also covered in detail will be Notifications which allows users to configure custom alarms through a standard user interface based on any data source. Leveraging the generic data access and template-driven capabilities of AF users can redeploy alarm parameters in Notifications to similar assets across the Enterprise. When operational excursions occur, Notifications can send alerts to a single recipient, a group of contacts, or an escalation team that reflects the organization's chain of command.

The class is four days long. Class will start promptly at 8:30 a.m. (9:00 a.m. in Europe, Singapore, Australia and New Zealand) and is scheduled to run until 4:30 p.m. We will break for lunch for one hour each day. When making travel arrangement for the class, please plan to remain on site to the completion of the final exercise. This should be no later than 4:30 on the last day of the class. This class provides 26 classroom hours of instruction.

This online course introduces you to creating your own custom symbols and tool panes using the Extensibility Framework available in PI Vision 3.x. Throughout the course, you will create symbols with one data point, multiple data points, symbols with customizable configurations and custom tools panes using JavaScript (with AngularJS), HTML, and CSS. There are 11 hands-on exercises tailored to apply the knowledge you've learned in the video lectures. Each exercise features an extra credit so that you can push yourself to learn more than what the course directly covers.

By the end of the course, you will have the opportunity to create your own custom symbol or tool pane that is meaningful to you and your organization.

Disclaimer


PI Vision Extensibility is a CTP (Community Technical Preview). Although similar concepts of this extensibility model will be applied in PI Vision 4.x, we do expect ‘breaking changes’ to occur. Developers should take this into consideration when planning to start building custom capabilities with the existing extensibility architecture. Also, PI Vision 4.x will be developed using Angular 4, while PI Vision 3.x was developed based on Angular JS.

This online course is available to help you preview the possibilities and power of extensibility in PI Vision 3.x. Due to the nature of the CTP status of this release, this course is offered free of charge to you.

Items to consider:
  • Often a valuable extension can be achieved in a matter of days allowing almost immediate value. For this type of project, little hesitation should be considered to move forward regardless of future changes to the extensibility architecture.
  • Projects that will require a considerable amount of effort and potential rework based on the future release may want to consider the impact of compatibility.
With breaking changes anticipated, OSIsoft does not plan to change the CTP status of PI Vision Extensibility until the release of PI Vision 4.x with Angular 4. For more information, please refer to this post by the PI Visualization team.

When the extensibility feature in PI Vision is released for general availability in the future, we will come back with an updated official online course.

Audience

This course is best suited for developers who are interested in learning different options to customize the PI Vision 3.x

Prerequisites

  • This course requires basic knowledge of JavaScript, HTML, and CSS
  • Familiarity with AngularJS and Git/Github is an asset

Software Requirements

Note: Learners are encouraged to use their own software and data structures. This allows each learner to immediately leave the course with something valuable to their enterprise. The software requirements for completing the exercises and the final project are as follows:
