  1. Pen Color property for attribute

    Have the ability to set a pen color for an attribute in Element Template and have PIVision use this. For example, I want to set Temperature as Green for all my trends. So when I look at hundreds of trends a day, I don't have to check every time if I am looking at Temperature or Pressure. By pen color you automatically know what attribute you are looking at on PIVision displays (assuming all trends built with using the pen color from database).

  2. Direct visualization on PI Vision of the correspondence PI tag/asset atribute

    This "feature" is very useful for all users (specially Operations) when we change from ActiveView to Pi Vision. The transition period must be taken in account.

    It will be an extra if OSI can develop the visualization of some more detail information about the attributes of the assets in PI VISION.

  3. Asset Comparison Table: Add Child Attribute as Column

    Currently, this can be accomplished by organizing you AF structure with rows as element names (assets) and columns as attributes using an Asset Comparison Table. I would like to see OSI Take the next step to generalize the asset table to be able to use Attributes as rows and their child attributes as columns (where you can choose). However, it would be nice to be able to select any child attribute and display its value as a column within a table. This would make PI Vision Tables significantly more flexible.

  4. Collection Criteria: Filter by Table Lookup Attribute

    Collection Criteria: Attribute Value

    Current functionality allows to set collection criteria based on an AF Attribute value. However, this functionality does not work if the attribute uses the “Table Lookup” data reference.

    Having this functionality available would increase scalability and flexibility.

  5. Support of more than 1 reason code

    As a user, I would like to enter more than 1 reason code per event frame. For example, a downtime event frame is created for the whole production line, and I would like to have a reason code for the cause and the other for the equipment.
    Currently, AF only supports 1 reason trait attribute per event frame. This also allows PI Vision to enter 1 reason per event frame.

  6. Invalidating data in PI Vision

    As a PI Admin, we need to invalidate data that we do not believe is valid.  This can be a real pain to do in SMT and would be much more user friendly if we could highlight a trend of where we deem the data invalid and have it flag the data as questionable.

  7. Display a PI Vision page embedded within PI System Explorer

    We have found PI System Explorer to be excellent at navigating through PI Tags, Document/Manual hyperlinks and general metadata about assets (serial numbers etc).

    If it was possible to embed a PI Vision or PI Processbook page on a dedicated tab (Where General, Child Elements, Attributes, Ports, Analyses etc are) it would leverage visual tools within the asset framework, and allow for a true enterprise tool to monitor assets and projects.

  8. Table Dynamic Filter to include attribute category filtering

    Currently, table dynamic filter criteria only includes element concepts, however, would like attribute category filtering concepts. For example, if I wish to categorize attributes as “Ancillary”, where one turbine model has 3 such attributes and another has 10 (because they come from different templates derived from the same base) – the table should shrink/grow rows to only reflect those attributes for the current asset context.

  9. Ability to edit some PI-AF properties from PI Coresight, i.e.: Light-weight PSE

    PSE is often used as a client-tool where it is not intended to be. It would be very beneficial to have a simple PSE tool just to view data. Browse Element Hierarchies and view Attributes, EventFrames.
    Just like PSE. The hierarchy could also make a small step towards a navigation hierarchy to navigate to Asset-relative displays.

  10. Add a PI AF Attribute Synonym Field Button for Searches

    We would like to have a synonym field for an element’s attribute that is searchable through PI Coresight, analogous to how we could search for an attribute’s description. In the screenshot below, the rightmost button with the pencil allows us to search for an attribute’s description. Another button could be added to search for a PI AF Synonym. Synonyms for an element’s attribute could be created within PI AF and presented to PI Coresight. For example, we may want to equate the attribute “RPM” with “SPEED.”

  11. AFTable data in Coresight

    Allow AFTable data to be used in a Coresight display symbol.

    Currently there is no way to navigate to AFTable instances in the navigation pane of Coresight. It would be useful to expose these object types and allow custom Coresight symbols to consume their data.

    It would also be beneficial to expose a function in the webServices service so that this data can be retrieved programmatically. Currently, this is only possible by directly querying the PI Web API for this data via an $http call.

  12. URL parameters for displays with parent and children attributes

    When I use a URL parameter to change the parent, all of the children attributes on that display also change. I have a handful of element structures that are all the same. I want to make one dashboard and then use A URL parameter to reference the other parents that will automatically update all the other data with children of the newly selected parent.

  14. In a table be able to filter items all assets except ones with a value of  "No Data" regardless of their data type in AF such as double.

  15. Calculation for futur PI tags or PI AF attribute

    Hi. I'm working with forecast data and so, using PI tags as future data instead of real-time data.
    If I want to display my forecast into a PI Vision screen, I need to feed the period from -5d to +3d. And it works for the PI tags. But it doesn't work for calculation attribute from AF. Then, it displays NO DATA for these these attribute values.
    Does calculation could be performed in the future in the next version of PI Server, AF or analysis?

    My email if you want more information: aamosse@eolien.qc.ca
    regards

  16. Automatically grey-out or hide attributes that are not configured well

    It would be great if Attributes in AF that are not configured well (with errors) (AF.jpg) were automatically greyed-out or hidden in PI-Vision (Vision.jpg).
