Create event frames from DeltaV Alarms & Events (EMDVB)
Alarm tags created by EMDVB can be difficult to analyze at scale. Event frames are a natural format for alarms because they have start and end times, durations, and can have different severities. PI client tools allow simple querying of event frames and let us to easily view our alarms in context of process data. Additionally it is easier to analyze EFs at scale using BI tools.
It would be valuable if EMDVB could automatically generate event frames from the DeltaV Event Chronicle and associate it with elements in AF. For example, we may want to specify the event frame name as the alarm description and include additional columns as EF attributes so alarms can be easily queried.
