The PI System Architecture, Planning and Implementation class deals with the issues surrounding the implementation of a PI System. This class will concentrate on the server and data collection side of the PI System, and it will provide you with a working knowledge of the installation of PI Server, PI Interface, PI Connector and PI Vision thin-client. In this class each student will work to successfully implement a High Availability PI System, for the PI Data Archive and PI Interfaces. You will spend valuable time discussing the components and their requirements so you can understand the best way the PI System will fit into your own Enterprise.
The class is four days long. Class starts at 8:30 a.m. and ends at 4:30 p.m. Lunch breaks are at 12 p.m. each day and last 60 minutes. 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.
Note: OSIsoft Learning Group is preparing documentation to obtain IACET accreditation to offer Continuing Education Units (CEUs). Upon successful completion of IACET assessment, the course description will be updated with CEUs instead of classroom instruction hours.
Who Should Take This Class
I am a professional who develops implementation plans for new Enterprise software applications. I need to understand the various parts of the PI System. I need to have a working knowledge of how data moves through the system and how typical users will see and use the data. I need to understand how different systems can connect to the PI System, in order to develop the best way for my organization to integrate the PI System infrastructure into our existing Enterprise. I need to know what the common pitfalls and stumbling blocks are in the typical implementation. I need to be aware of the resource requirements in implementing the PI System. I need to understand the High Availability and redundancy options inherent in the PI System.
The student should be familiar with the following:
- Basic knowledge of domains, workgroups and user accounts
- Basic networking knowledge (IP address, port, firewall etc.)
- Basic PI System knowledge (passing Visualizing PI System Data or PI System Administration is highly recommended prior this course if student does not have any PI System experience)
