What is PI ProcessBook?


Standalone software that allows users to create
dynamic, interactive graphical displays featuring
real-time PI and non-PI data.
Displays can show:


3.5.3 AF2 Data Set
Copyright © 2010 OSIsoft, Inc.
What is AF Asset Model?





Allows users to organize and structure PI
data and other data (like reactors,
transformers, meters, etc.)
Is based on Element representing a useroriented object
Element can contain attributes
All information are stored in the PI
Analysis Framework Database (AF)
 Permits to use AF as a common
source of data, properties and
configuration
Information from AF are available through
AF2 Data Set in PI ProcessBook
Copyright © 2010 OSIsoft, Inc.
45
ProcessBook Dynamic elements

The dynamic elements will change in real time
according to the value of their associated
element’s attribute


Instead of referencing a point it uses a AF2
element’s attribute
Result will be modified by the unit of measure
(UOM) chosen
Copyright © 2010 OSIsoft, Inc.
46
AF2 Data Set


Use AF2 Data Set
to present data
from your model
AF2 property /
attribute can be
used with:





Trends
XY plot
Multi-State shapes
Dynamic values
Bars

Conclusion
“By using PI, we have been able to see what we guessed
was happening. We have been able to validate our ideas
and turn them into substantive savings. In our case,
10% of our operations budget.”
