Exercise – Create a Dynamic Dashboard to Monitor Your Tanks

Version 2

    Objectives

    • Create a PI Vision dashboard using dynamic symbols.
    • Create a collection with symbols

     

    Problem Description

    You would like to have a dashboard which shows the key pieces of information for our tanks or for your own assets. The operator would like to see only tanks that are overheated at any given time. They also need a summary table that lists the installation dates and asset locations for all of their tanks.

    Approach

    Step 1: Build a PI Vision display including the following symbols, utilizing the Collection symbol:

    Collection

    Measurement

    Display Symbol

    Asset Name

    Value

    Tank

    Graphic

    External Temperature

    Value (Multi-State Use default values but change colors)

    Internal Temperature

    Gauge

    Internal Temperature

    Trend

    External Temperature

     

    Installation Date

    Asset Comparison Table

    Asset Location

     

    Step 2: Edit Collection Criteria to only show overheated tanks (Internal Temperature > 150°F), add an Asset Attribute to the Asset Type.

      1. How many tanks were overheated at 8 am today? _____________
      2. How many tanks were overheated at noon yesterday? _____________

     

    Step 3: Save your display as Tank Temperature Dashboard <Initials>

     

    Bonus: Modify the collection to include more graphics and a multi-state symbol such as a gauge for the pressure.

     

    An Example is below:
