Please note that the tasks in the exercises are meant to reinforce key concepts that you have learned in the video lectures! We encourage you to get more creative and use the exercises only as pointers. If you wish, you can share the exercises with the facilitators. However, please note that the facilitators will NEVER ask you to share proprietary information with the class. Additionally, anything shared with the facilitators as proof of work will be destroyed at the end of the course.
A Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) is provided with this course. Once you launch the PI System Explorer in the VLE, you will find different AF databases with the pre-loaded Asset Based PI Example Kits. For hands-on exercises, you can either use the same "Condition Based Maintenance for Pump" sample kit that John used in the videos or explore different sample kit to achieve the same functions/concepts you just learned in each video.
At the end of each hands-on exercise, we ask you to repeat the same steps on your own PI System to help you prepare for your final project.
