Project Concept

In the last guide, Connect Factory Assets Using Controls Advisor (Guide 1), you learned how to rapidly connect factory PLCs and assets and visualize the associated data.

You will now build on those capabilities by learning how to monitor the configured assets, alert factory personnel if they are performing abnormally, and trend asset data. This guide will teach you how to define asset and line statuses using conditional statements, set alert thresholds to trigger the alerts, and plot data easily.

These new capabilities will allow you to better monitor asset health and investigate data surrounding abnormal conditions.
