You're now ready to start putting your new knowledge to use!
To complete this course and receive a certificate of participation, you must complete a final project on or before the deadline specified at the beginning of your course by the course facilitator. If you have any questions about this, please contact your facilitator or ask on the discussion forums. To help you develop a good project outline, we have some industry-specific CBM examples in the CBM Guide eBook: Chapter 8 - Solution Examples (page 37).
Please remember that no extensions will be given for the final project. Your submission must be your own work, and not copied from another student, course videos, ebook or online resources. No credit would be given for plagiarized work, partially completed work, and no refunds would be given for failed projects.
Before beginning the project, you must work out, with the facilitator, a final project that meets the following criteria:
- The project must use your data to create something that has value to your enterprise (if you can not use your company data due to privacy concerns, exceptions can only be granted by the Learning group through the facilitator).
- The project must be of sufficient difficulty that it provides a challenge.
What constitutes a challenge will be determined by you and the facilitator. However, a typical project includes the use of:
- A well built out AF hierarchy. Try to make use of Element Templates that include contextual information for your assets (nameplate information, operating limits, maintenance dates) - A simple replica of an existing Asset Based PI Example Kit will not be accepted.
- Analysis Templates using Expressions, Rollups, and/or Event Frame analysis types
- Configuration of alerts using Notifications
- Asset Health Visualization using PI Vision, PI ProcessBook and/or PI DataLink
- [Optional Challenge] Include the URL(s) of relevant asset monitoring PI Vision display(s) in Notifications
To submit your project, please write a document (MS Word, PowerPoint, or other) explaining the calculations you’ve created, the logic contained within them, and several screenshots of the configurations themselves. If you’d like, you may also export the AF database and/or Library objects (i.e. Templates) as an XML file and send it to the course facilitator in addition to your write-up. Please submit the project via e-mail directly to your course facilitator.
Note About Customer Data
Absolutely NO customer data will be shared outside of the Student / Facilitator relationship. The facilitator will NEVER ask a student to share proprietary information with the class. Anything shared with the facilitator as proof of work will be destroyed at the end of the course.
If however, you work on a generic project and wish to share it with other users on the community, OSIsoft can help facilitate that. This will be completely at your discretion and OSIsoft would take no legal responsibility.
