Problem Description

You are interested in building a PI Vision display that shows all the vital measurements of the four tanks of OSIsoft plant (or your own plant) in one place, for the past 4 hours until the next 15 minutes



Step 1: Build a PI Vision display including the following symbols for the key measurements of each of the four tanks:

For both
Mixing Tank1 and
Storage Tank1


Display Symbol

Internal and external temperatures

A single Trend

Levels and Level_Forecasts

Asset Names


Production Area

Asset Name


Production Lines

Asset Names



Step 2:    Repeat the procedure for Production Line2

Step 3:    Add shapes and images to complete the display (perform a quick Google search to find some images if needed)

Step 4:    Change the start and end time of the display to the desired values mentioned above.

Step 5:    Remember to save your display as <Initials>_Production Area Dashboard


One example of what your Display might look like is below. There are many possible solutions – yours does not have to look exactly like it!
