PI System Architecture, Planning and Implementation - Frankfurt

This class will concentrate on the server side of the PI System, and it will provide you with a working knowledge of the tasks required to maintain a PI System and support the technical needs of its users.

About this course

NEW Virtual Live Classroom training

Don't let travel restrictions put an end to your PI System education! We are pleased to introduce our new Virtual Live Classroom training as an alternative to traditional classroom-based training. If you would like to attend this course remotely, please select a course date with 'Virtual Live Classroom' appended to the title during registration. If selecting this option, see below to learn more about the new format and the necessary prerequisites, or click here for more information.

Introduction

The PI System Architecture, Planning, & Implementation class deals with the issues surrounding the implementation of a PI System. This class will concentrate on the server side of the PI System, and it will provide you with a working knowledge of the installation of both the Data Archive and AF Server. In this class each student will work to successfully install a High Availability PI System, from interfaces and connectors to visualization tools. 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.

This course requires no previous knowledge of the PI System.

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.

Prerequisites

The student should be familiar with the following:

  • Basic knowledge of domains and workgroups
  • The basic structure and function of a database
  • Your own architectural constraints and structure

Virtual Live Classroom Prerequisites

If you have selected a session with the Virtual Live Classroom location you must provide your own equipment. You can take the class from any location, but please keep note of the required live meeting attendance times belowThe requirements below are strict, and you will be asked to test them before the class begins:

  • A modern computer or laptop
  • An additional external screen or tablet
  • A fast and stable internet connection capable of streaming and uploading video for the duration of the class. We recommend a speed of at least 10 Mbps download and 4 Mbps upload
  • A headset and microphone
  • A webcam
  • A modern web browser. To test, click here.
  • The ability to join a WebEx session. To test, click here.
  • Availability between the hours of 9:00 am and 5:00 pm CEST on each day for live training portion of the course.

Class Outline

The class begins with a detailed examination of the PI System and its components. The student will seek to gain an understanding of how the PI System fits into the Enterprise infrastructure as a whole, and how the various pieces will contribute to their overall value of the customer.

The course will then be devoted to a series of exercises where the student is challenged to understand the function and value of each of the pieces of the PI System. The class will share ideas about best practices and ways to approach planning an implementation. Students will gain experience installing a PI System from scratch, configuring interfaces, connectors and buffering, and finally expanding the system to a High Availability (HA) configuration. The course is designed to give students a broad knowledge and hands on experience to use toward their own real world implementation.

These topics will be covered in each class.

  • The Basic Building Blocks in the PI System
  • PI System Environment Architecture
  • Adding Power to the PI Environment
  • AF HA Explained
  • Installing the Data Archive and AF Server
  • Installing PI Interfaces
  • PI Point Attributes and Interfaces
  • The PI System Explorer
  • PI Builder
  • Explore the Power of AF
  • What is PI Buffering?
  • PI Connectors
  • PI Security: User Access
  • PI Server High Availability
  • N-Way Buffering
  • Complex PI System Architecture Challenges

Final Challenge – The Power of Planning: PI in the Enterprise

The course ends with a challenge to students to use the course material to construct a complete data solution for use when they return to their job. The goal of this is two-fold: to reinforce in the student the new skills learned in the class and to allow more time for the student to ask questions and get clarification on concepts prior to returning to their job.
