Transpara Corp. has just announced ‘Visual KPI for AF’ an operations intelligence add-on to OSIsoft’s Analysis Framework (AF), an enterprise-wide infrastructure for real time plant and process data modeling. AF is used to define a ‘consistent representation’ of an asset, providing attributes and context for PI System and non-PI System data. Visual KPI for AF adds web-based access to AF data, and links any AF element to key performance indicators (KPIs), scorecards and views in Visual KPI.
Transpara CEO Mike Saucier said, ‘Visual KPI for AF needs no configuration or programming. AF brings order and structure to many kinds of data and Visual KPI for AF delivers this to users via the web. By adding a visual component to the monitoring, aggregation and analysis of AF data, Transpara maximizes an OSIsoft investment, extending the power of AF in asset-intensive verticals.’
Transpara has signed an OEM agreement with OSIsoft under which Visual KPI is to be embedded in the PI System. The agreement will enable KPI status and trends to be evaluated over time. Visual KPI allows users to create their own time based scorecards such as, ‘plot all KPIs that entered the ‘High’ state in the last 60 minutes.’
