  1. Event Comparison: Freehand zoom on event frame overlay

    It is currently possible to zoom in on event frame comparison using child event frames, but you cannot zoom in into an arbitrary location on a trend by dragging the mouse cursor.

  2. Export event frame data to CSV from event details and comparison displays

    From the event details or event comparison displays in PI Vision, it would be useful to export event frame data (including attributes and values) to CSV/XML.

  3. Multiple Traces on Overlay Trend

    Ability to put multiple traces (like flow and temperature) on a single overlay trend, still with showing data from multiple events/ batches or comparison against golden batch/events.

  4. Event Gantt: Visualize Child Events on Parent Event Gantt Bar

    On the event gantt chart, have the ability to show lines/time markers for the child events in the parent event gantt bar when not expanded. This way the user doesn't need to expand the gantt to get an idea of when the children occurred.

  7. Event Frames Table & Features enhancements

    • The ability to view event frame attributes/annotations (or referenced element attributes) within the Events table in PI Vision
    • Select multiple events in the table and define a reason code and/or comment for all events selected
    • Input/View comments from the event table instead of having to open a new window in PI Vision for each event
    • Ability to use the event table with tablets/phones (Not sure if this is possible already? I tried on our system and was unsuccessful)
    • sort/filter based on the highest production targets which are event frame attributes
    Use Case:
    • During well…

  9. PI Vision Event frames should show child elements in the Attributes panel of the Events comparison page.

    When viewing event comparisons, the Attributes pane only lists the event frame attributes, the referenced element, and the referenced element's attributes. It currently cannot drill down and trend child element's attributes.

  10. Event Comparison: Add ability to set time range / end time (X-axis)

    Sometimes there are very long event frames in the event comparison and it would be nice to be able to set the width of the x-axis to cut these event frames off at a certain duration. It's inconvenient to have to manually exclude them, and sometimes one still wants to look at long and short event frames in the same display.

  11. Display single result of Event Frame attributes that are calculations (Average, Total, etc.) instead of underlying tag data

    When there is an Event Frame attribute that is calculated, i.e. the attribute has a “By Time Range” Value retrieval method of Total, Average, Maximum, Minimum, etc., PI System Explorer shows a single value for this Event Frame Attribute. In PI Vision displays, however, the underlying time-series tag data are displayed instead of the calculation result. I would like to view the calculated value instead of the underlying tag’s time series data in order to be able to compare values from different Event Frames.

  12. Drop-down list of available Event Frame comments in PI Vision

    When an Event Frame is selected in Events Comparison Displays, the user should see a drop-down list instead of or in addition to the "Add Comment" text box.

    This drop-down list should include possible comments (configured in the EF templates) that the user might select and add to the event.

  13. Event Gantt: Better Displaying of Deep Events

    For events with lots of children, do not show each child event on their own row on the Gantt Chart because it takes up a lot of vertical space for Events that have lots of children. Instead only go to a new row if the events overlap in time.

  14. Use check boxes to select which Events to Compare

    As an end user, when going from related Events to the Compare Events page, I would like to see a check box which allows me to select which items to compare in the overlay trends.

  15. Event Frame Comparison Hide Multiple Event Quickly

    Currently in the event frame comparison page, you can hide event frames from trends by right-clicking on the event frame and selecting the hide option.

    It should be easier to hide events quickly: Optimize the way events can be hidden or provide the ability to hide multiple event frames in one go instead of one at a time.

  16. Events Comparison: Configure via URL parameters

    Allow configuring event comparison displays in an ad hoc way so that the search criteria and the attributes shown can be set through URL parameters.

    For example: As an operator, I would like to receive email notifications with hyperlink URL pointing to the correct Events Comparison display, along with configurable search criteria.
    The same automation could be used in an iFrame inside a 3rd party application to open (inside the iFrame in Kiosk mode of course) a related and contextualized Events Comparison display with targeted search criterias or using a simple mouse-over.

  18. Show Date and Time Stamps When Comparing Similar Events

    When comparing similar events, add functionality to see not only the relative time since the batch began but also the exact date and time as you click around the trend.

  19. Plot summary profile of all Events in Event Comparison

    I would like the option to plot summary calculation profiles (average, maximum, minimum of all the Event Frames currently in my Event Comparison) in order to compare each Event Frame to the average of the included Event Frames, i.e. if I have 10 event frames then I would like to display the concentration over time for each individual Event Frame (10 profiles) as well as the average concentration profile of all the event frames (1 profile). This is somewhat like a golden batch but is a statistically manufactured plot as opposed to being from a golden run.

    See https://pisquare.osisoft.com/thread/36396-how-do-i-plot-an-average-for-an-attribute-from-event-frames.

  20. Allow multiple comparisons on one display

    On BatchView we could place multiple comparisons on one display and have the current or running batch highlighted. This was great for a process with multiple batches running at different distinct phases on multiple units.

    A simple example would if a batch that consisted of a fill phase, a cooking phase, and a emptying phase with different wait conditions between each phase.

    If that simple recipe is running on 5 different units and each unit is at a different phase

    The parameters or variable for a fill phase would be different then those for ether of the other 2 phases, …
