Cycle View Browser

The cycle browser provides graphical data on your processes cycle status, including the machine heartbeat.  The Cycle Browser has two main displays, the Cycle View Upper display and the History Display panel.

Data Presentation (Colors, utilities)(Lesson 2-1)

Object Properties
The Object Properties are located in the top left of the cycle browser.  Model, AGV, Part, CycleNumber, Cycle time, and time data can all be located here. The highlighted Cycletime is dependent on the status of the cycle displayed. It can be Green (Good)Yellow (Watch)Orange (Warning)Purple ( Missing ), or Red ( Fault )

Good /  Green -Normal, Optimum Performing Range
Watch /  Yellow -Watch, Not Optimum but within defined Tolerance window.
Warning /  Orange -Warning, Outside Defined Tolerance Window
Fault /  Red -Fault
Missing /  Purple -Missing Data due to Stoppage or Missing Input/Output.

  

 Cycle Length

Cycle Length baselines are represented by a |---BLUE—| bracket in Envision. Ideally, group length will match this bar exactly.

  Minimum Tolerance

Minimum Tolerance is the amount a group or cycle can deviate below the cycle time before becoming an Orange (Warning) record.
 

 Minimum Normal Tolerance

Minimum Normal Tolerance is the amount a group or cycle can deviate below the cycle time before becoming a Yellow (Watch) record. The NTol number should always be smaller than the regular Minimum Tolerance (Min Tol).
 

 Good Cycle Time

A Good Cycle Time record will be Green (Good) if the amount of deviation above or below ideal cycle time is smaller than any tolerances. 


 Maximum Normal Tolerance

Maximum Normal Tolerance (Max NTol) is the amount a group or cycle can deviated above ideal cycle time before turning Yellow (Watch). The MaxNTol number should always be smaller than the Maximum Tolerance (Max Tol) number.
 

Maximum Tolerance


 Maximum Tolerance (Max Tol) is the amount a group or cycle can deviate above the cycle time before becoming an Orange (Warning) record.



Views (Heartbeat _ Sequence)(Lesson 2-2)

View Types


Located to the right of the Upper Graphing area, are 4 buttons to change the views to either Heartbeat or Sequence and to change to a User Parameters graph. The fourth button is to open the Cycle Compare window.
 Heartbeat View is the default view.  The Blue Heartbeat Baseline can only be viewed in Heartbeat view.


The Sequence View contains state labels which can only be seen in the sequence view.

Cycle Compare (Lesson 2-6)

Cycle View Evaluation Module 3.6

Overview
The Cycle View Evaluation Module will allow users to view multiple cycles at the Asset and Group object level in the cycle view browser. It can be utilized with any cycle, regardless of its status (watch, warning, etc.). The three main parts used for this module is the Cycle View Browser, Cycle Compare (Collection) Window, and the Cycle Compare Browser. 






Open Cycle View 3.6


First, navigate to get to the Cycle View Browsers, so that the History Display Panel can be accessed.
After opening the enVision browser, click on the blue Object Tree icon to open the Main Tree. Navigate the Main Tree to drill down to the Asset or Group level. This module is active at the Asset levels and below.
The Cycle View window will update with the last 100 cycles. Select a cycle from the History Display Panel.


Selecting Cycles to Compare 3.6

Once the enVision browser is open, select the Cycle view tab from the top menu tab and a new Cycle View window will reveal with the last 100 cycles in the History Display Panel (in the lower browser window).

Select a cycle from the History Display Panel. Once a cycle is selected, it will have a white dash line through the selected cycle, showing that it is selected.




Open Cycle Compare Window 3.6

When the cycle is clicked on, the upper display window will show the cycle selected. In the upper right-hand side above that window will be the Cycle View Menu bar. On the far right side is the Cycle compare button.

Configure Cycle Collection 3.6

When the Cycle Compare window opens, input a Name for the cycle's folder, then select the Create a New Cycle Collection button. This will update the window with a new folder (CEM 001) and the first selected cycle.

You can click the View button and the upper display will reveal the selected cycle as shown below. This will only show the cycle selected.

Adding More Cycles 3.6

To add more cycles, select another cycle from the History Display Panel. Once selected, select the Cycle Compare button. The Cycle Compare window will open. Click on the first cycle that was selected, then select the Save to Collection button in the upper right-hand side of the window. This will add it to your selection. Ensure that you select the correct cycle you want to compare with. If many cycles (assets) are already present in the Cycle Compare window, it is possible to add to a different collection, so selecting the wrong cycle will pair your selection to that cycle instead of the intended one.

Now with 2 (or more) cycles in the Cycle Compare folder (CEM 001) you can select the View button, and this will show the 2 (or more) cycles in the upper browser window.
The cycles will be displayed layered one atop of the other. Hovering over a bar will reveal the details of the cycle. On the left hand side, it will display the cycle information of the cycles selected and stored in the Cycle Compare Collection. To exit this mode, you can select from one of the Cycle View buttons to the right of the window, such as the Heartbeat and Sequence views buttons.


Zoom Feature 3.6

While viewing the cycles in this cycle compare window, you can zoom in to a collection by click and holding, then drag the zoom selection area over your intended cycles. The selected area will be highlighted, then Update to a zoomed in view on your selection.

NOTE: The zoom selection area is highlighted with a deeper color.

The zoomed area is now reopened to the selected area. Click on the Reset Zoom button in the upper right-hand corner of the graphing area. This will return the selection to the original display size (default).
Note: The Zoom Function works in the upper graphing area and the History Display Panel.



Deleting a Cycle 3.6

 From the Cycle Compare Window, select a single cycle from the list in the Cycle Compare window and select the Delete Cycle button to delete the cycle selected.
The Cycle Compare window will update to show the Collection Folder CEM 001 and the unselected cycle.


In the event that you deleted a cycle in favor of a different one, you can close the Cycle Compare window and select a different cycle to compare with the remaining cycle. Click on a new cycle in the History View Panel, then click the yellow Cycle Compare button to open the Cycle Compare Collection. Click on the cycle that you want to compare, then click the Save to Collection button. See Adding More Cycles.







Deleting a Collection 3.6

Select a Collection Folder from the list in the Cycle Compare window, then select the Delete Collection button to delete the folder and the cycles in it.



SPECIAL NOTE: Though the data for the cycle and collection have been deleted, it still can be viewed if you have not closed the enVision Browser or navigated to another collection.
Simply click on the Teal colored cycle compare button under the Heartbeat and Sequence buttons. This will reopen the last cycle compare set that was previously viewed before.















Cycle Toggle Feature 3.6

When viewing the Cycle Compare Browser with multiple cycles, it is possible to remove the cycle data from the present Compare window. With two or more cycles displayed, you can click on the left-hand side of the window and select from the cycle information area. Click on any one or more of the Cycle Information tiles to remove from the Cycle Compare browser area. Click on it again to add it back to the browser.
The first cycle will be on the top in the left-hand side information window, and will be on the bottom bar on the Compare Cycle Window.

Clicking on the Cycle Information tile will toggle to deselect or select a cycle.
