Unleash Your Asset Framework
Simplified reporting on your Asset Framework data
Does your team rely on regular reports to review plant KPI data and planned vs current performance?
Generating these kinds of reports – monthly, daily, or hourly – can take thousands of man-hours over time. The AF Reports engine from Process Innovations simplifies reporting on Asset Framework data. It exports KPI and calculated data from the Asset Framework database into Excel and PDF formatted reports that can be distributed using PI Notifications.
How the AF Reports Engine Works
Create Your report Schedule
Identify file names and paths
Select your report data points
Optionally include specialized template library functions
With the Process Plugins foundation in place, you’ll have unlimited access to the process plug-ins templates library for handy functions, such as curve table, which returns Y as a function of X by interpolation from a table; draw curve, which writes to dedicated PI tags to render any curve or set of curves from a table; write-to-PI, which writes values to any PI tag, with a totalizer option also available; and the full set of 1997 thermodynamic properties of water and steam. Simply choose the library items you need.
Relax! Your reports are on the way
Automatically distribute your reports using the PI Notifications service included with your PI Server. It allows distribution via email or web services. You can set up a distribution group for each report to make sure everyone gets the information they need.
