The Historization of your Assets and Time Series Historization with IngeniBridge

Adding New Elements

Historization is based upon 2 attributes existing in every node of the hierarchical tree. The two attributes are:

  • Begin of validity
  • End of validity

Please note that the validity dates are controlled by the IngeniBridge server every time it receives a request to manipulate an entity in the tree.

 

That being said, it is possible to add a new element in the tree be it Asset (see contract) or Time Series (see contract).

Element Updating

An existing element may be modified to update its contents. In that case an historized replica is created and the previous version becomes invalidated due to end of validity time. An element of type Asset (see contract) or Time Series (see contract) may be modified.

Element Deletion

An existing element may be deleted. In fact it will simply become invalidated due to end of validity time. An entity of type Asset (see contract) or Time Series (see contract) may be deleted.

Element Reactivation

An previously deleted element may be reactivated. In that case a replica of the invalidated element is created with new validaty dates. An element of type Asset (see contract) or Time Series (see contract) may be reactivated.

Element Moving

An element may be moved inside the hierarchical tree. In that case the origin element is invalidated and a replica is created at the the position in the tree. An element of type Asset (see contract) or Time Series (see contract) may be moved.

Element History Tracking

It is possible to know all the version of a specific element in the IngeniBridge database. Every versioned element has validity dates that never overlap. Tracking is available for Asset (see contract) and Time Series (see contract).

Here an example of tracking a pressure sensor in its own history.
