    Creating Basic Reports with PI Datalink - Nov/Dec 2016 - Introduce Yourself!


      Welcome to the end November/December 2016 Building Basic Reports with PI Datalink online course. I hope you are all as eager and excited as I am to get this course off to a great start! We have created this thread where all users who have registered for the run of this course can introduce themselves and interact with each other.


      Please know that this is your space! We encourage and welcome you to ask questions about Datalink and setting up reports.  Please familiarize yourself with using Data Archive (PI tags) as well as AF (attributes) data to demonstrate the flexibility of Datalink in working with your specific PI system.  More so than Processbook, in my opinion, Datalink has a great deal of material just beneath the surface, which can transform it from a useful tool to an essential one.  This material includes things like filter expressions, time filtered data, and element-relative reporting.


      If you face any issues navigating the course on the OSIsoft Learning Web site, please leave your comment here, so we can respond to you faster. Otherwise, thanks again for signing up for this course and we hope you enjoy it!


      But first, let me introduce myself.  My name is Aaron Schrage, and I am a Field Service Engineer with OSIsoft.  Among my responsibilities are installing and upgrading  OSIsoft products for our customers, teaching classes (both online and classroom-based), and supporting and mentoring new Field Service engineers.  PI Datalink is a key tool in making the best use of the PI System, and I look forward to helping you learn it.


      Please introduce yourself in this thread so I can learn about you, your experiences with the PI System, and specific goals you have for this course. Additionally, please take advantage of this Community to share any thoughts or questions during this course. You can also contact me personally at bschrage@osisoft.com.


      I look forward to working with you over the next few weeks!

          Hi Aaron, hi friends

          Thanks a lot for your commitment with our knowledge. Of course I find PI Data link as a tool to make PI System as powerful and successful for operations and business data analytics. I'm interested in provide End-Users expresive and easy to use tools, for data manipulation analysis and visualization.

          I will be following this course for the next weeks so you will hear from me soon.

            My name is John Everett, and I am a Plant Engineer with Exelon. I am responsible for providing technical direction and guidance to combined cycle site operations and maintenance staff. My position involves system and equipment troubleshooting, root cause analysis, environmental and regulatory compliance support, performance monitoring, and defining outage work and maintenance priorities.  I hope to learn PI ProcessBook as a tool to aide in analysis and troubleshooting of equipment and system at my plant.
