Is it possible for AF Asset-Based Analytics to write to an AF Table?
What we need is a 'queue' of possible data quality events that the operators can see, investigate and respond to. My idea was to have a set of analyses looking at process values and flagging up things like spikes, flatlines, outside limits, etc to a status tag for each input. Then having PI Notifications looking at the status tag and raising a notification for periods that are not 'OK'. We would then have a web-based front-end listing all the unacknowledged notifications, allowing the operator to do whatever is required and then marking the notification as 'acknowledged'.
However, there may be further information required, such as an operator comment, that the Notifications can't handle (or can they?), so we are also considering having a Custom Delivery Channel to write the notification to an AF table which the front-end can then manipulate.
But could we do all of this in Abacus, am I introducing more steps than are necessary?
