  1. Trend: Statistics between cursors

    When adding multiple cursors to a trend, have a way to show the statistics (delta/min/max/avg/duration) between the two cursors so that a user can easily understand what happens during the cursor times.

  2. Replay Time / Playback Time

    Be able to go back in history and "replay" what happened while looking at a display.

    Also potentially integrate this with event frames, i.e. the ability to replay what happened leading up to an event, during event, and after an event.

  3. Timebar: Add control for flexible time manipulation

    Similar to the timebar in Coresight 2.x, add the ability for a user to finely control time using a slider and increase or decrease the time duration using the slider.

  4. Visualize Questionable Flag

    The visualisation of the questionable flag on trends. We map ‘suspect’ SCADA quality to the questionable flag, and it is very useful visualising this on trends as it indicates an issue, and the data on the trend can be held in question

  5. Export Data Supports Data Frequency

    As a process engineer, I would like to be able to control the data frequency (minute, hour, etc.) of how much data is exported for my time range rather than a fixed number of data points SO THAT the data that I export can actually be used for some analysis rather than data that is too sparse to be used.

  6. Asset Comparison: Trend with multiple elements with specific attributes

    Testing Coresight 2016. After searching for all the elements I want to display on one graph, I want to be able to select the attributes I want to display. Currently, can only drag all the elements onto the display, which creates a trend with all the elements and all their attributes.

    I would like to be able to select the elements I want, then drag an attribute from the Attributes section and have it create a trend of all the selected elements with the selected attribute or even multiple attributes.

  7. Make the results of the PI Vision Calculations reusable

    Example:

  9. Match Trace Colors Between the Display and Ad Hoc

    In the PI Vision ad hoc workspace, the colors of the traces in the ad hoc trends should match the colors that they were in the display they came from, instead of being randomly assigned a new color when they are added.

  10. Display Slope/Derivative of PI Vision Trend

    Users can easily make a plot of a process value as a function of time. It may be useful to know how that process value changes with time, so users would benefit from having an easy way to analyze the slope (derivative) of a process value as a function of time.

  11. Dynamic representation of PctGood() function in PI Vision

    Looking for the ability to extract percentage good from “Min percent good” value calculated by Value Retrieval Methods analysis for a specified time range and link it to an AF Attribute to display the value in PI Vision. Value can then be recalculated dynamically depending on the time duration configured by the client (PI Vision). Analysis with PctGood() function does not allow ad-hoc time range manipulations by clients.

    Working example: End-user opens a PI Vision display with a fixed start time and end time (midnight to midnight) to visualise “Percent good” for a certain attribute. The quality of the archived…

  12. Add search to ad hoc trend workspace

    Add search to ad hoc workspace so that attributes and tags can be added directly from search to the ad hoc trend.

    Allow direct access to the ad hoc workspace so that users investigating an issue don't have to open a display or create a new display to get there.

  14. Ability to see multiple incremental scales in adhoc display

    Right now you can have multiple scales but for all but one scale only the min and max value are displayed on the trend. Would be helpful to have incremental scale values for all scales displayed at the left of the trend. For example in the attached image the orange scale you only see the min and max value whereas for the blue scale you see multiple values.

  15. Ability to show values near the pen lines rather than at the top of the trend (adhoc trending)

    Ability to show values in an adhoc trend at the pen line rather than at the top. When comparing a large number of data items it is hard to distinguish the different values when they are all listed at the top of the trend

  16. Possibility to add more than 2 most recent points to XY Plots for better analysis

    We would like the possibility of configuring more than 2 most recent points in XY plots to better understand the trend of equipment readings in the past. A better comparison can be made with recent points with different colors and more data in the graph.

  18. Move Trend Cursor with arrow keys (keyboard)

    At the moment it is just possible to move a trend curser with the mouse. But hitting a certain point in a trend would be much easier by moving the trend course with the arrow keys of the keyboard.

  19. show details and annotations

    There is a useful function in PI Processbook called show details and annotations. which can show the time-serised data in a window for a tag in trend. Also I can see which two data point is used to calculate the value I point at.

  20. Enable clipboard capture of cursor values

    When I drop a cursor on the trend symbol, I can see the current value at the cursor's timestamp of all trend traces in a small side pop-up. I would like to be able to copy to clipboard these so I can use them in an email, or in another report.

    Now I have to take down by hand these values and manually pass those around, all pronged to errors and cumbersome operation.
