The user can easily switch between available dashboards or quickly create new dashboards with trend or context item tiles. In addition to the notifications users can receive based on monitors they have created, dashboards can be used to assess operational performance and prioritize which parts of their process require special attention. From DashHub, users can directly investigate process anomalies, production losses or equipment inefficiencies.
360o View of Your Manufacturing Process
DashHub also provides users with greater flexibility. The recently introduced ContextHub brought users the ability to get a full 360 view of their manufacturing processes by unlocking all operational events stored in third party systems. Users can now easily jump between the graphical views of TrendHub and the contextual views of ContextHub at will. Context items can be visualized directly within their respective trend views, and conversely, context items in ContextHub can be used to directly access their respective trend views with a simple push of a button.
Also new in 2019.R2 is the ability for context item information such as quality results, batch numbers, or results from 3rd party systems to be added through flexible field creation. This additional information can be used to filter data in a way that suits the user, which in turn can help to speed up data analysis activities of subject matter experts.
Enhancements driven by our users
TrendMiner is designed by engineers, for engineers and we highly value user feedback. In each release we include improvements based on user ideas and suggestions. Some notable enhancements in the TrendMiner 2019.R2 release:
- Event frames synced from the OSIsoft PI System are now enriched with their corresponding attribute data with additional fields on context items, unlocking visualisation, filtering, and sorting capabilities in ContextHub.
- Extended reporting capabilities by enabling the export of (stacked) trend and scatter plots images that include a list of tags and layers.
- In ContextHub, more filter options have been added, as well as the ability to configure columns within the table view.
The full range of TrendMiner’s capabilities, including the new DashHub and multiple enhancements, will serve to further reduce the time and effort it takes to solve equipment and process performance-related issues. It is TrendMiner’s goal to help our customers make better, faster, decisions, by giving the power of analytics to the people who can interpret the data.
