    How to build dynamic process book from AF

    matthew.rivett

      We have a couple process book files that are mostly tabular with some multistates that list out many assets.  It also uses layers to show some additional data.  It is manually done and a maintenance head ache.  Below is a snapshot of a small portion of the display that has had names removed.

       

      We have an AF model for these assets that we have a process to keep up to date.  I would like to connect to this AF model and iterate through it to build the PI display dynamically.

       

      I could use the Process Book feature to build a process book template for these element templates and drag and drop but that is still not ideal.  I'd prefer to build the display in code so no one would have to keep it up to date.  Has anyone done something like this before?

       

      Thanks,

      Matt
