The Asset Based PI Example Kits are designed to help you learn how to apply asset- based PI to common, industry-specific business objectives.


This kit provides a general approach to leveraging PI AF for condition monitoring.  It addresses the need to implement condition monitoring logic with minimal effort and upkeep. Even for a large number of assets, the framework simplifies managing and utilizing alerts.  In addition, the kit provides methods that facilitate assessment of asset condition over time and across a facility.


This kit is designed with common templates so it can be applied to diverse equipment and still provide utility. Three main objectives are addressed:

  • Generic condition assessment (assign alarm & severity) and alerting
  • Rollup\aggregation of condition statuses
  • Common condition detection algorithms



The kit contains:

  • Example templates and analyses
  • A representative PI AF structure
  • Screenshots of example Coresight dashboards
  • A starting framework for you to customize with your own assets and analyses
  • User's guide


This Asset Based PI Example Kit requires the following minimum PI System software versions:

  • PI Data Archive 2015 or later
  • PI Asset Framework Server 2015 R2 or later
  • PI Analysis Service 2015 or later


Note: the kit has only been tested with the above versions but will likely work with previous versions.
