Σstimex

Complex Event Processing for PI System made simple

Σstimex was created to combine the ease of data correlation offered in MS Excel (TM) together with the speed of data processing offered by the PI System. It allows users to easily design data-driven monitoring algorithms, connect them to OSIsoft PI System and run them in batch mode.

The philosophy behind Σstimex is the ability to design algorithms directly in MS Excel (TM), using standard Excel formulas, whereas the batch execution engine on the server enables high-speed analysis of the PI data stream without the need of running the Excel exectuable.

Σstimex combines the capability, flexibility and ease of use of PI DataLink (TM) with cutting-edge PI Server/PI Notifications/PI SDK (TM), which interpretes standard Excel formulas in real time, continously applying them to the data stream. Imagine that now your Pi DataLink can be processed efficiently in batch mode!

Four easy steps to work with Σstimex

1
Algorithm definition

Algorithm definition is done in Σstimex Designer Plugin, which is a standard MS Excel plugin (Similar as Pi DataLink). Using Σstimex Designer Plugin you can connect to PI Server and PI Asset Framework, pickup elements/templates and attributes that will be used in the monitoring algorithm. You can also define a window of stream data to be used by the algorithm. This may can be a time window or a specific number of events. You can work with standard excel formulas and functions and define any algorithm to be calculated on data stream coming from PI. Some of the Excel cells can be chosen as ‘Result’ cells, where you can specify what values should be picked up and what kind of actions should be taken. Go to our life instruction feed ------>

2
Simulation

Before launching the algorithm Σstimex allows algorithms to be simulated in test environment. Go to our life instruction feed ------>

3
Deployment

Defined and tested algorithms can now be deployed to the live server and allow you to close all supporting executables, while Σstimex continues to deliver calculated results in the background. Please not that any algorithms assigned to Asset Framework templates, can be used repeatably where the template will be used. Go to our life instruction feed ------>

4
Algorithm Explorer

Deployed algorithms can be managed by the web-based Σstimex Algorithm Explorer. You can view the algorithms in Asset Framework hierarchy. Selecting the algorithm allows to enable, disable or schedule the algorithm. Σstimex Algorithm Manager is integrated with Active Directory. Go to our life instruction feed ------>

Σstimex business value

Σstimex may be used as a cost-effective and simple solution in any case, when standard tools are not flexible enough, but custom software could be too expensive. Examples of such situations may be:
Alarm management
Detection of equipment downtimes
Unusual data behavior detection
Data validation

Advantages of using Σstimex:

Familiar and powerful MS Excel interface
Ability to integrate the data, which is normally not available in PI System
High-performance server side
Processing of real-time data
Easy to use algorithm management platform

Our vision and further development

Σstimex is to evolve into fully-equipped, but still simplistic MS Excel-based Complex Event Processing platform for OSIsoft PI System, with the future features:

Database dumps - ability to dump particular events to the database
Integration with OSIsoft PI Notifications (creating PI notification from Σstimex)
Integration with OSIsoft PI EventFrames (creating Events from Σstimex)
Integration with any third-party application (message queues)
Any other features of Σstimex depend on you, if you think that any functionality may be useful, please do not hestitate to contact us info@estimexsoftware.com
