An Analysis is a visual display of data from the following data sources within Tulip
App: Data is organized around App Completions from the past
Table: Data is current values in Table Rows
Machine: Data is past events from OPC tags that are stored in attributes
It is defined via:
This doc will review all the possible configuration fields for each chart template and data source combination.
Additionaly, Chart Layers allowing to create Insights are detailed at the end of this page.
|Name||Name of the Analysis|
|Sharing||Refresh Seconds- the frequency that the visual display will refresh with new data. Minimum 5 seconds.
Public Link - An optional public link that will allow anyone to view data in the analysis
Download Image- Download the current state of the analysis in a PNG image
|Apps (Apps data source only)||A list of apps that act as a data source for this analysis|
|Compare By||A categorical value that will determine if the baars should be split up by different colors|
|Date Range (apps only)||The date range for values that will be considered in this chart based on when the app completion with the data point occurred|
|Filters||Any exclusion or inclusion rules for data in this chart|
|Table (table data source only)||The table data source for the analysis|
|Date Range (tables only)||The date range for values that will be considered in this chart.
The user can select one of two system generated fields as a reference:
|Machine (machine data source only)||The machines under a specific machine type that will be considered in the analysis|
|Date range (machine data source only)||The date range for values from OPC tags that should be considered based on when the OPC tag outputted a value|
|Display||A series of options to change the display of data on the chart, including:
Show Target Cycle Time: Show the goal process cycle time from the first app added to the Analysis
Switch X Axis and Colors: Switch the “Compare By” and “X Axis” values
Hide Legend: Hide the legend on top of the chart
Hide X Axis Label
Hide X Axis Tick Labels
Hide Y Axis Tick Labels
|Customize||Change the way that names of different variables, table data, machine data, and summary operations appear on the chart|
This displays one variable or table field on the X axis and a numerical value on the Y axis.
|X Axis||The data point whose values will determine the categorization of data on the graph|
|Y Axis||The numerical data point that will be organized based on the X Axis values
For datetime values:
GROUP VALUE - Grouping of data by minute, hour, day, week, month, quarter or year.
X Axis Scaling
This displays multiple numerical or boolean variables or table fields on the X axis and a numerical value on the Y axis.
|X Axis (apps data only)||Choose the variables with numerical or boolean values that you would like to compare on the chart|
|Y Axis||The numerical values that you would like to compare on the chart|
|X Axis (table data only)||Choose the table fields with numerical or boolean values that you would like to compare on the chart|
|X Axis (machine data only)||Choose the machine fields with numerical or boolean values that you would like to compare on the chart|
This displays multiple numerical or boolean variables or table fields on the X axis and up to 2 numerical Y axes. Only the Y axis related to the first defined operation will be shown.
|X Axis (apps data only)||Choose the variables that you would like to compare on the chart|
|Compare||Choose the 2 different Y axes that you would like to show on the chart|
Stacked Bar Chart
Grouped Bar Chart
Multiseries Line Chart
|X Axis (machine fields only)||Choose the machine fields that you would like to compare on the chart|
This shows individual app completions on the X axis and a numerical or boolean value on the Y Axis.
|Y Axis||The list of numerical variables or table fields to compare for each individual app completion|
Bar Chart, Donut Chart, Line Chart, Pareto Chart, Dot Plot
This shows one numerical table field or variable on the x axis and a numerical value on the Y axis.
|X Axis||Choose the variables with numerical values that you would like to compare on the chart X axis|
|Y Axis||Choose the variables with numerical values that you would like to compare on the chart Y axis|
|Sorting||The direction of the X axis- either values are either increasing or decreasing
Also includes a “limit” input to limit the number of data points on graph
This shows a single numerical value. Can be whole number or percentage.
|Number (app data only)||Specify the numerical value that should be displayed|
|Number (table data only)||The numerical value that should be shown based on a single value from a Table Row or a rollup value from multiple Table Rows|
|Number (machine data only)||The numerical value derived from a rollup of many Machine State Changes|
This shows a single Image variable or table field with any user-defined text variables or table fields alongside it. There is one “slide” in the “slideshow” per app completion.
|Image||Determines which image variable should be used in each step of the slideshow|
|Columns||Additional data points from the app completion that should be shown alongside the image in the slideshow|
Tables show single rows of data per app completion OR rows for each value of a user-defined variable in the “Groupings” section. For example, one row per user.
|Groupings||Determines what should make up a row in the table- either individual values from app completions or common values across many app completions|
|Operations||The columns that should be shown for each grouping- can be numerical or categorical|
|Sorting||The order of rows- can be based on a numerical value in any column
Also includes a “limit” input to limit the number of data points on graph
All analyses are limited to a maximum of 1000 visualized records. If the analysis configuration would return more than 1000 records, last 1000 records are shown. "Last" is defined by a descending order of the X Axis values.
Example: If the X Axis is configured to be a datetime field, the most recent 1000 records will be shown.
Layers can be added to certain chart types in Tulip to generate Insights. Insights are pieces of information that are extracted from or created using the data visualized in the analysis.
This layer can be added to Tulip Table analyses with the following configuration:
The Layer can be turned on in the "Chart Layers" side panel which can be accessed using the "Chart Layers" button in the top right corner of the analytics editor. The following configuration options are available:
|Upper Control Limit (UCL) and Lower Control Limit (LCL) - mandatory||Number input defining the upper and lower control limit used for evaluating the control chart rules. The UCL must be larger than the LCL.|
|Center Line||Configuration of the center line used for evaluating the control chart rules. If "Middle Center Line" is selected, the average of the UCL and LCL will be used. If "Custom Center Line" is selected, the user can specify any value between the UCL and LCL.|
|Rule Selection - at least one must be selected||Configuration of the rules to be evaluated by the Control Chart Layer to generate insights. See rule description below.|
The following rules are available:
| Rule Name / Insight | Logic | Visualization | | ----------- | ----------- | ----| | Single Outlier | Any single data point above the Upper Control Limit (UCL) or below the Lower Control Limit (LCL). | Outliers are visualized with a red outline in the chart. | | Prominent Shift | 9 or more consecutive data points either entirely above or entirely below the center line. | Prominent Shifts are visualized by a red background highlight in the chart. |
