  1. Improve ability to search for batch-based Event Frames

    Batch users need a search option that's specific to batch-based Event Frames.

    Customers should be able to natively search by BatchID, Product, Procedure, and Recipe, so long as their Event Frames are based on the default Batch-based Event Frame Templates (PIBatch, Procedure, etc.).

    There are a few default attributes for the standard batch-based Event Frame Templates: BatchID, Product, Procedure, Recipe, etc. Are there other key attributes that should be included in a batch-specific Event Frame search?

  2. Filter or re-order attributes on the Event Frame Details page in PI Vision

    As a user, I would like the ability to filter Event Frames on the Event Details page like we could previously in PI Vision 2020 and earlier.

    It would also be useful to be able to customize how the attributes are ordered in the EF Attribute tables section of the Details page. Currently in PI Vision 2021 we can only choose either Alphabetical Ascending or Descending by clicking on the table column header.

    These would make organizing the Event Details page easier when we have dozens or hundreds of attributes.

  3. Golden Batch as Average of many Events with Confidence Interval

    It is often difficult to find a golden batch in prior events. Instead, it would be great to allow users to select many batches that were considered "good" and have EF create a smoothed average curve with confidence intervals for this set of good batches. I have seen a few hacks to do this currently within EF, but they do not seem easy to maintain.

  4. Show comments directly on the event frames table

    It would be helpful to have a "Comments" option under the "Configure Table" options on an event table. That way comments show up on the event table rather than in a separate window when users right click on the event and select event details. I know there is a "Reason" category but the user is limited to an enumeration set of inputs.

  7. EF integration into symbols

    Like many customers, we make heavy use of event frames. It would be great if Vision symbols could make better use of EFs. For example:

    1) Allow configuration of multi-state symbols based on whether an EF is active at a particular time. For example, a downtime EF is active on a piece of equipment, so you want the asset to turn red. Otherwise, I believe you need to recreate the EF logic in either a second analysis or create a Vision calculation. These options are not necessarily available if the EF comes from a batch interface.

    2) Allow bar charts…

  8. Categorize Event Frames in PI Vision with dropdown menu

    As an end user, I should be able to categorize PI Event Frames in PI Vision using a dropdown menu. For example, I could mark it as Scheduled Maintenance, Unscheduled Maintenance or Covered by Warranty. This would enable bulk reporting of revenue losses for certain Event Frames which cover equipment failures and make PI Vision a more interactive program

  10. Show & enter comments from the Event Table (with pencil & pop-up like reason codes

    Realizing that comments can be of indeterminate length and number, the table could just indicate the presence of comments and the pop-up show the comments.

  11. Disable left click to details window in EF Table configuration

    This seems like a great feature - but very often people accidently click on it and are disoriented when the window focus changes.. It can still be accessed from the right click menu. This could be an optional check box in the EF Table configuration so that people who like it can keep it.

  14. EF Table "Apply Time Range" could set display asset context to EF Element...

    When you use "Apply Time Range" from the EF Table if the display has Asset alternatives - set the Asset context to the EF Element as well - or provide an option to do so..

  15. It would be good to display the Full Name of the user in Acknowledged By column in Event Frames Table

    It would be good to display the Full Name of the user in "Acknowledged by" column in Event Frames Table on PI Vision, instead of displaying the windows user ID. By doing this, users will be able to easily understand who had acknowledged the EF. Windows users IDs are difficult to understand and need to findout the exact user from other applications like Outlook.

  17. Trend of Event Frame Attributes in PI Vision

    We would like to make the trend of some attributes belonging to the event frames generated for a particular AF Element. For example, we consider the value of the conductivity at the end of the washing phase as an important parameter. We can easily register Event Frames for washing phases and each one with the value of the conductivity at the end, but we would like to put in a PI Vision trend such results for all event frames in a period (referred to the same Unit, i.e. AF Element). As a trend line I imagine an event frame search…

  18. apply event time range to pi vision display to show time before and after event.

    We have events of short duration and often use the "apply time range" option from the events table or events search in Pi Vision. We then have to manually adjust the time frame in PI Vision to be able to see a wider time range and understand what happened before the event. It would be really useful to be able to have a configurable time frame that PI Vision uses to show x minutes before and x minutes after the event when using "apply time range".

    This functionality would also be useful on the event event details page.

  19. Add RootPath functionality to Event Frame Table

    I would like the ability to leverage the RootPath URL parameter to return all event frames tied to child elements of the selected asset. Currently, this seems to work only if the display is created against an asset with all of the same child element names as the context-switched element. I would like this to work for any set of child elements regardless of the child element names.

  20. Event Comparison: Table of events

    Allow adding a table to event comparison displays so that different information for each event can be displayed (for example recipe, cell-clone, ...). This would allow this information to be available similar to how it is displayed in the search results in BatchView
