  1. FAQ: All of my tag names are complicated combinations of letters and numbers. Is there a way that I could save my tags with useful names to use in later analyses without using the "available outside this analysis" check box? Solution: One popular way to do this is to create a dummy analysis where all you do is create aliases for your frequently used signals. Then, when you want to do an analysis using these tags, you can duplicate your dummy analysis, and begin a new analysis with all of your tags already having useful names. To create your new signal, open a Seeq Formula window and change the title to the alias that you want to give your particular tag. Then set the value of this new signal equal to the existing signal. See screenshot attached for an example using Seeq Formula to create an alias of "South Bridge-wall Temperature" for the tag-name "RK.HFGY_36_R901.PV".
  2. Upstream O&G Customer Use Case: I have created a condition for when my well is shut-in based on a value search on the down hole pressure. I've created another condition for the first hour after the well is shut-in. I would like to create another condition that runs from the end of my 1-hour after shut-in condition until the down hold pressure returns to within 10% of it's pre-shut-in value. Once I have isolated this period of time I would like to calculate an hourly rolling average over only that time period and do the same for my 1 hour after shut-in condition. Solution: To address your first question of creating the t>1 hr after shut-in capsule. One method to do this is below: 1. Create a condition for ~5 min before shut-in and shift it by ~5 min to make sure you have the Steady state DHP prior to shut-in. This is done using Formula. The syntax (quotes not part of code) is "$ShutinCondition.beforeStart(5min).move(-5min)". The beforeStart(5 min) creates a new 5 minute long capsule directly preceding your shut-in capsule. The move(-5 min) function shifts this new beforeStart capsule backwards in time by 5 minutes. 2. Calculate a new signal that represents the average DHP over the condition created in step 1. Use signal from Condition with the following inputs: Signal or condition = DHP Summary Statistic = Average Bounding Condition = condition from step 1 Where to place timestamp = Start Interpolation Method = step Max interpolation = a duration longer than the time between shut-in events 3. Calculate a new signal that is the signal created in step 2 (DHP right before shut-in) + 10%. Use Formula and the syntax "$signalFromStep2*(1.10)". 4. Calculate a new signal that is the delta between the DHP and this initial + 10% signal. Use Formula and the syntax "$DHPsignal-$signalFromstep3". 5. Create a condition for when this delta signal created in step 4 drops below zero. Use value search and <0 as inputs. 6. Create a composite condition that joins the end of your existing capsules t<1 hr after shut-in to the start of your condition created in step 5. The inputs to this composite condition will be: Condition A = t<1 hour after shut in Condition B = Delta signal drops below zero Logic = join Not inclusive of A Not inclusive of B Max capsule duration = long enough to capture the time back down to initial DHP. For each of the two new signals you want to create, you can use formula and the following syntax, where $ChooseCondition will be your t<1 hr and t>1 hr conditions in each formula. "$DHP.within($ChooseCondition).runningAggregate(average(),hours())" This will give you a new signal of the 1-hr rolling average of DHP only during the specified condition.
  3. FAQ: I've calculated a scorecard metric that I want to use in a calculation of a condition. While the scorecard metric is visible in trend view, it is not provided as a signal choice in the drop-downs on the tools or in the Seeq formula window. Can my scorecard metric be used in calculations of other signals/conditions? Answer: In the versions of Seeq currently available (R21.0.41 or earlier), the scorecard metric tool does not actually create a signal despite being able to be viewed in trend view. The signal from condition tool requires the same input arguments and produces the same outputs, but as a signal rather than a metric, which can then be used in the calculation of further signals and conditions using Seeq tools or Seeq formula. If there is a desire to use the calculated parameter (via either scorecard metric or signal from condition) in further calculations AND in view it in a scorecard, we recommend first using signal from condition to do the calculation of the parameter, then referencing your signal from condition in the scorecard metric tool (without actually calculating the metric).
  4. FAQ: I want to create a condition where a trend is within a specific range of slope so as to identify instances where it falls inside and outside these ranges. Is this possible? Solution: This can be easily done using a combination of the Formula and Value Search tools in the sequence below. Use formula to calculate a new signal that is the derivative of the original signal. Formula code is: $signal.derivative() Note - if the original signal is step interpolated, the derivative returned may have infinite values. If it is step interpolated, it is best to first change the interpolation method to linear, then take the derivative. Formula code for this method is: $signal.toLinear().derivative() Use the value search tool on your new derivative signal to create a condition when your derivative is above or below a particular value, or in a specified range.
  5. Rolling averages are frequently used in Seeq to smooth signals. Calculating a rolling average requires creating a Periodic Condition and then applying the Signal from Condition tool to aggregate the signal of interest over the bounding periodic condition. Sometimes, we want to calculate a rolling statistic over a time frame not listed in the Periodic Condition tool (anything < hours). To create a periodic condition for periods of time not offered in the tool, the Seeq formula tool can be used with the periods() function. For example, a 15 minute periodic condition can be created by entering "periods(15 min)" into the Seeq formula tool.
  6. Hi Fiene, You can linearly interpolate between data points on your non-continuous signals using Seeq formula tool. First apply the setMaxInterpolation() function to the singal, and follow with the toLinear() function to ensure linear interpolation (if your signal is brought in as step interpolation or other type). Here is the syntax for the Seeq Formula tool: $signal.setMaxInterpolation(X hours).toLinear() In this example syntax, "X hours" should be changed to the amount of time you would like to linearly interpolate between samples.

  7. The histogram tool when aggregated over time can cause some confusion as to what hours of the day the values of the bins reflect. The bin labels that are generated by Seeq reflect the hour of the day beginning at midnight. So for example, 0 = midnight, 2 = 2 AM, 14 = 2 PM, etc. When the display range interval is set to one day beginning at midnight, the histogram bins line up with the signal value quite nicely (see attached screenshot 2). When the display range is not set to begin at midnight, or is set to multiple days, the histogram bins may not appear to line up with the process data (see attached screenshot 1), but the distribution that they reflect is correct for the day(s) in the display range. histogram tool discussion - screenshot 1.pdf histogram tool discussion - screenshot 2.pdf
