PE to Analytics Migration Utility

Blog Post created by David Pugal Employee on Mar 28, 2018

We are glad to announce the general availability of PE to Analytics Migration Utility. It is being released as an open source tool to aid you in converting PI tag based PI Performance Equations (PEs) to Asset Analytics analyses. Why are we releasing it as an open source project? There is really no "correct" way to do such conversion as the needs and requirements vary and the utility might not handle all complex use cases. Thus, we want to provide you ability to enhance the tool for your particular needs. Also, we will accept pull requests!


High-level features of the utility:

  • PE to Asset analysis business logic conversion, naturally;
  • basic asset hierarchy, including analysis and element template creation;
  • matching of the existing elements and attributes to those used by PI tag based PEs.


There are also some restrictions. Not all functions are supported by Asset Analytics, so the equations that contain Alm*, Steam*, Arma, Delay, Impulse, IsDST, and MedianFilt cannot be converted by the tool.


For questions and suggestions, please leave a comment or reach out to me, Stephen Kwan, or Nitin Agarwal directly.
