After my first intro into P.A.T. here: Digital Assistant for the PI System
I decided to go and make P.A.T. available in PI Vision! The idea is that if you have a specific display where you would want users to be able to ask questions about the data, typically:
- They don't want to build displays but need information
- They don't have OSIsoft tools like PI System Explorer
- They don't know enough about the PI System in general to find the right information
However, they do know their plant/equipment/process so they can ask sensible questions about those. P.A.T. is the secret sauce between the users and the PI System to help bridge that knowledge gap.
If a user is looking at a PI Vision display with context already set (by way of an Element or Attribute) then P.A.T. has a jump start to help answer any questions it gets.
The aim is to make it as easy as possible to get to the right information.
Below is a look at the first iteration of the custom symbol for PI Vision.
I didn't have time to synthesise Dr Pat Kennedy's actual voice so we have to make do with Google's UK Male Voice.
