Setting up a Bar graph with various parameters

Abstract

Check out these tutorials analyzing different measurements of one single use-case and learn how to achieve the described results.

For a better understanding of the power of i4connected analysis and monitoring modules, we have prepared this hypothetical hierarchical structure that demonstrates the relation between a production location, its associated devices and their signals:

Location

Location

Machine

Signal

Site

Area 1

Device 1

Produced parts

Outside temperature

Machine temperture

Machine status:

  • 0 = OFF (Machine is off)

  • 1 = ON (Machine is on)

  • 2 = MAINT (Machine is in maintenance mode)

  • 3 = FAIL (Machine is in failure state)

Area 2

Device 2

Produced parts

Outside temperature

Machine temperture

Machine status:

  • 0 = OFF (Machine is off)

  • 1 = ON (Machine is on)

  • 2 = MAINT (Machine is in maintenance mode)

  • 3 = FAIL (Machine is in failure state)

Area 3

Device 3

Produced parts

Outside temperature

Machine temperture

Machine status:

  • 0 = OFF (Machine is off)

  • 1 = ON (Machine is on)

  • 2 = MAINT (Machine is in maintenance mode)

  • 3 = FAIL (Machine is in failure state)

Area 4

Device 4

Produced parts

Outside temperature

Machine temperture

Machine status:

  • 0 = OFF (Machine is off)

  • 1 = ON (Machine is on)

  • 2 = MAINT (Machine is in maintenance mode)

  • 3 = FAIL (Machine is in failure state)

Area 5

Device 5

Produced parts

Outside temperature

Machine temperture

Machine status:

  • 0 = OFF (Machine is off)

  • 1 = ON (Machine is on)

  • 2 = MAINT (Machine is in maintenance mode)

  • 3 = FAIL (Machine is in failure state)

Bar graph of production per Device
Abstract

Check out how to configure the Load profile graph in order to analyze the amout of produced parts, per machine.

The i4connected Load profile module helps you calculate and analyze various data series, obtained from an intersection between the chosen objects, the selected time range and the available KPIs.

This article guides describes the chart parameter settings required by the Load profile to generate data for our hypothetical hierarchical structure.

  1. Enter is Edit tile mode by clicking the top toolbar button.

Bar graph of total production per Site
Abstract

Check out how to configure the Load profile graph in order to analyze the total produced parts, per site.

The i4connected Load profile module allows you to analyze the productivity of complex structures such as the one described here. To check the total production of a Site and all its substructures, a set of parameters need to be set, as follows:

  1. Enter is Edit tile mode by clicking the top toolbar button.

    Edit_tiles_button.jpg
  2. Select the edit option of the Load profile tile,

    Edit_tiles_button.jpg
  3. Expand the Parameters selector under the Edit tile panel.

    1. Select the desired KPI(s) used by the chart to plot data.

    2. Define further chart parameters, such as Start date, End date, Measure aggregation, Resolution, etc.

  5. Under the Advanced section of the Parameters selector panel proceed with the following settings:

    Advanced_section.jpg
    1. Click on the Change object filters parameters selector.

    2. In the Edit object filter patterns panel expand the Default options.

    3. Identify the Chose selected items selector and use it to apply your Site.

Line graph of Device registered temperature
Abstract

Check out how to configure the Annual Load graph in order to check and prepare a complete analysis of your device measurements.

Having a complex hierarchical structure does not prevent you from analyzing very specific measurement data of your sttructural objects.

This tutorial describes the steps needes to parametrize the Annual load dashboard in order to measure a Device temperature:

  1. Enter is Edit tile mode by clicking the top toolbar button.

    Edit_tiles_button.jpg
  2. Select the edit option of the Annual load tile,
