Suggested time commitment: 3 weeks of study, 4-5 hours/week
In this self-paced online course, you will learn how to create different types of asset analytics to gain more insight into your data. Using Asset Framework (AF), we will explore a range of analyses including expressions with multi-line calculations, roll-ups for aggregate attributes, event frames to capture important events in your process, and notifications to trigger alerts based on the real-time changes in your asset.
There are 11 hands-on exercises and 1 final project tailored to apply the concepts and skills you've learned in the video lectures. By the end of the course, you will have a working knowledge of how to set up asset analytics using element templates in PI AF, how to store and manage calculation result. After the analyses are set up, you will learn how to leverage PI Client tools such as PI Data Link and PI Vision to visualize, understand and annotate the calculation results.
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.
