  1. Event (EF) Plot / Batch SQC Plot

    Plot for Events (EFs) or Batches are on the x-axis and process value is on the Y axis.

    This might be another variant of a SQC Plot but based on batches/events (in time order) rather than strictly by time.

  2. Easily choose between AF attribute name and actual PI tag name

    When creating a display using attributes (i.e. - Agitator Speed), I would like to be able to easily toggle between the name and the actual tag ID. I have access to PI System Explorer, so I can go and find it, but my end users do not and in some instances would like to display the actual tag and not the attribute name.

  4. Compare data over different time ranges on the same trend

    As a process engineer, I need to be able to overlay traces on the same trend with data from different time ranges so that I can compare different point in time. This may be the same data item over different time ranges or multiple different data items over different time ranges.

  5. TABLE: Allow Asset Comparison table to be transposed

    In the paper industry, there are fewer assets at a site, but those assets tend to have many attributes (e.g., there may only be 3 paper machines, but each has 100 attributes of interest). It would be helpful if the Asset Comparison table in PI Vision could be transposed so that asset names were Column headings and attribute names were rows.
    For example, instead  of a table with 5 rows and 100 columns (that can't be seen all at once on one display page), it would be better to have four columns of assets names with 100 rows of values,…

  6. Hide data when attributes don't exist for dissimilar assets

    Assets and machines are never quite the same. Be able to swap the asset/element context (may be different template) and if the selected asset doesn't have certain data available on the display or if it is marked as excluded, don't show it on the display rather than an error message.

    This should apply to collections in addition to individual symbols.

  7. Increase the update rate of data in PI Vision displays

    As a PI Vision user I would like to be able to increase the update rate of PI Vision displays to less than 5 seconds and even sub-seconds so I can use it for trending.

  11. Smart Guides for Aligning Objects

    "Smart" guides would be really helpful for lining up symbols when editing or creating a display. For example, similar to what PowerPoint has when you move an object around on a slide. It tells you when you're aligned with another object on the display.

  12. Allow auditing of PI Vision display changes

    As a PI Vision administrator, it would be useful to be able to track and audit changes (creation, edits, deletion) to PI Vision displays.

  13. Trend: Add Dynamic Search Criteria

    Allow dynamic search criteria to be added to a trend so that it can dynamically display data from assets based on the specified search criteria (attribute values, attribute name, attribute category, etc).

  14. Tour Scheduling for PI Manual Logger

    In PI Manual Logger PC, you can set tours to run on a schedule.  This allows, you to set the tour run time as opposed to having the application round the tour run to the nearest hour.

    In PI Manual Logger Web, the tour scheduling configuration is not respected.  Add functionality for Tour Runs in PI Manual Logger Web follow periodic tour scheduling.

  16. Trend: Ability to multistate trace pen color

    As a PI Vision user, I want to be able to configure a trend's trace color to be conditional based on the trace value. Each section of the trace should be colored appropriately based on its value at that time. See attached image for example.

  17. Layering functionality for PI Vision similar to that of ProcessBook

    PI Vision currently does not support any functionality for layers. It would nice to be able to create custom layers that could toggled on a single Vision display. ProcessBook currently has layering feature that is very useful for simplifying a complex display when not all of the information is necessary for every user.

  18. 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

    Given a target AF Element, generate a collection of dynamic hyperlinks in PI Vision. The dynamic hyperlinks shall be generated based on children elements of the target for given criteria (i.e. element template or element category). Each dynamic hyperlink address shall be configured based on the value of a specific AF Attribute value. This attribute shall be the same for all the generated hyperlinks.
