Best Practices for Using and Deploying the PI Asset Framework
Asset Framework (AF) is an integral part of the PI Server. It allows you to build an asset model of the physical objects in your process and associate asset properties to your data. This asset model becomes a “directory” allowing you to find and consume the information you need quickly. AF provides other benefits including an online calculation engine, support for templates, Units of Measure and many more. In this presentation, we will give a brief overview of AF followed by some best practices for using and deploying this software, including new features and functions like the recent implementation of Notifications.
