IGSS Dashboard

Here’s a dashboard !Applicationbutton(Doughnut)Ribbon(contextsensitive)Widgets

The goal of the Dashboard• Quick overview of process status• Quick overview of key values in the process• Provide analysis tools for the user todetermine corrective action• Provide dashboards for non-IGSS users(The dashboard client only needs an ODBC connection to theserver – not charged as an operator station)

How the Dashboard works …Configuration’s report folderIGSS ODBC ServerThe server must be running.Delivers data to the Dashboard.Dashboard 1Dashboard 2Views available in the Dashboard –called WidgetsDashboard 3• LOG data• Reduced data (BCL)• Graph data• Online data• Audit Trail• Memo sticker• Web pagesMemo text is saved in text filesEach memo is saved in a separate .txtfile in the configuration’s report folder.Setup and Startup- Dashboard can be started automatically.This Is set up in System Configuration.

Dashboards and memos are filesDASH and TXT files are saved in the report folder• A dashboard is saved as a .dash file• A .dash file can be used as a dashboard template• DASH files can be backed up (SystemConfiguration)• Memo text is saved in .txt files• TXT files can be reused in multiple dashboards

Exercise:Create a pump station dashboardThe finaldashboard

View mode• The Dashboard starts in View mode• The only tab available is ViewThe user selects a data period.A time offset can be defined forthe individual widget.
