Building an Asset-Centric PI System
Are you a newcomer to the PI System? Or maybe you are a long-time user, and you've just started migrating your PI System to the asset-centric world? In this presentation, we will demonstrate different ways to easily create and build up your asset structure using PI Asset Framework (PI AF) and tie all of your data together for easy manageability. By organizing your data and information in this manner, you will be able to best utilize your investment in the PI System by taking advantage of the various PI System client tools.
