Easy Wins to Improve your Asset Framework Experience

NEW - Learn implementation and troubleshooting tips to take your Asset Framework structures to the next level

About this course

Have you embarked on a new Digital Twin project and you feel lost in the weeds? This course will provide you best practices and hands-on exercises on how to get started with Asset Framework (AF) and Asset Analytics. The course will cover setting the scope and modelling accordingly, dealing with asset variations and tag naming conventions, integrating external data in AF, building well-configured AF analyses and propagating changes between separate environments (test-to-production or central-to-local systems). You will explore examples of well-configured and ill-configured AF databases, and get ready-to-use insight. The message of this course? Your data is as valuable as the context you build around it!

By the end of the course, you will be able to...

  • Determine the best way to embark on a new project with AF.
  • Discover performance issues in your PI Server through interacting with your data in PI Vision.
  • Validate the use of AF Templates to your skeptical colleagues.
  • Apply a few simple best practices to improve your PI Experience.

Audience

This course is intended for someone that has started an AF project but is starting to feel a bit lost. If you have ever caught yourself wondering if there is a better, more sustainable way of completing a task consider yourself the prime candidate for this course. Additionally, if you find that you are having performance issues with your AF or Analytics servers this lab will give you a new set of skills for troubleshooting.

Level: Intermediate

Study time: 4 hours

Course Access: Unlimited access. The only exception is the Training Cloud Environment for which you have 30 day access. After those 30 days you can purchase additional access with one of the two options below:

Prerequisites

  • While you do not need to be an expert with the PI System this is definitely not a lab for someone who has never worked with AF. Some experience will help follow along with the content. If you have attended our “Building PI System Assets and Analytics with AF” class and attempted a few projects yourself this is the perfect jumping off point.

This Course Includes...

  • Videos, discussion opportunities and quizzes to help you learn the material
  • A Cloud Environment accessible for 30 days and configured to complete all the exercises in the course
  • A sharable certificate of completion

Further Information

  • The course is accompanied by an Azure-deployed virtual environment and a workbook, which allows you to walk through the contents in detail at your own pace.
  • This is a self-paced course. Any questions or assistance needed about the material can be asked in this course's space in the OSIsoft PI Square community
  • When you complete the examination at the end of the course, you will receive a certificate of completion which can be shared and directly posted on LinkedIn.
