In this course, you will expand your knowledge of our popular client tool to interpret your process data in a deeper and more organized way. This follow-up course to Building Basic Displays with PI ProcessBook online course will cover topics such as creating workbooks, data sets, XY plots, and SQC charts. We will also introduce you to the PI AF Display Builder, and guide you on how you can quickly show your data in an organized format beyond just displaying values.
This course is self-paced for your convenience. Thus, there are no live components to the course, nor are there are required login hours. Please use the video lectures for instruction along with the course exercises to gain hands-on experience working with key concepts. Most importantly, get involved in the discussion forums here on the PI Square community and interact with your peers and experts both at OSIsoft and other organizations, post questions, answer questions posted by others, and overall help each other learn as you would in a classroom environment.
If you’re enrolled in a facilitated session of this course, you also have the opportunity to earn a certificate of completion by submitting a final project to your course facilitator. Please see the final project for details.
This course is for intermediate users of PI ProcessBook, and is open to anyone who has a basic understanding of PI ProcessBook and wishes to learn more.
If you're a process engineer or plant operator, and are interested in learning more about advanced features of PI ProcessBook, how to interpret process data, and create meaningful displays for end users; then this course will be useful for you.
Each learner will be required 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.
We will not be teaching PI ProcessBook basics in this course; and assume that students would have experience building PI ProcessBook displays.

Below are the video lectures for this course. We have placed the topics in the same order as they would be presented in a live instructor-led course. However, feel free to view the videos in any order, spread over any interval. You can also rewind and rewatch parts of the videos that you need to view again. Also be sure to check out the Online Course Videos - Tips and Tricks if your videos look fuzzy!
The following exercises serve to reinforce the concepts learned in the video lectures. We strongly encourage you to get more creative and build cool and interactive displays, using the exercises as pointers. Please note that the facilitator will NEVER ask you to share proprietary information with the class. Additionally, anything shared with the facilitator as proof of work will be destroyed at the end of the course.
