PI Event Frames, a new capability of the PI System that was released in PI Server 2010 R3, enables customers and partners to record and organize important process or business events to help you find relevant data. Examples of these events include downtime tracking, overall equipment efficiency, process excursions and other time-range-based analytics. The initial release delivered an infrastructure for developing custom and partner applications, and it provides the basis for future PI Event Frames functionality throughout the PI System.
