New PI Vision Plugin – Event FrameManual Data Entry by Eigen Ltd

The first PI Vision Plugin on the market that seamlessly integrates with PI Vision Event Frame Details view, extending its functionality with a manual data entry capability for any number of custom attributes related with an event frame.

Problem: The only attribute that can be set manually in an Event Frame is “Reason”. Other attributes that can be configured within the PI System Explorer could not be shown and interacted with.

Eigen was tasked to set up an AVEVA PI system for a fertiliser production plant of a large chemical engineering company. Due to the nature of the manufacturing process, each step of a batch production had to be captured as an Event Frame, generated automatically by the PI System out of the sensors’ readings.

The customer was also taking lab measurements at every step of the process and wanted to combine the data captured by the sensors with a manual input of the lab results and maintenance information and store them together to be used in calculations and comparisons with a golden batch. They wanted to do it within a single application (PI Vision) without having to use the PI System Explorer to input additional data.

The Solution: A new PI Vision plug-in tailored for general Event Frame manual data entry

We combined our AVEVA PI expertise together with our broad experience with software engineering to develop a new plugin that provides manual data entry functionality. Unlike an other plugin of such type, it utilises the full potential of the PI Extensibility, providing not only a standard custom dashboard symbol, but also seamlessly integrating into the Event Frame details view.

The Eigen’s Event Frame Manual Data Entry widget automatically lists the manual data entry attributes related to an Event Frame and allows for easy value modification. It also supports nested (child) event frames, formula values and read/write to the PI Data Archive. The widget can also be used as a standard dashboard symbol, where it can be configured to integrate with an Events Table.

The Impact: Streamlined production oversight

Batch data can now combine sensor data with manually acquired data such as lab results for a seamless evaluation of batch attributes, independent of their acquisition route. Batch performance can now be evaluated considering all the batch results for a streamlined production effectiveness oversight.

The new plug in eliminates the need for a separate batch attribute database disjointed from the event frame attributes, which translates into a system that is easier to use and maintain.
