How to Use Databases to Boost Your Production IQ

Interesting instructional video. The first guest speaker shows how to construct a query that uses functions to list the alarms that have gone off most often within a time range. Travis from Inductive Automation steps through installing a MySQL database, log PLC data, then graph it, display it in a pie chart or table in Ignition. The last presenter, Chirayu, demonstrates data collection in Rockwell Software's FactoryTalk Studio in an Energy Consumption example.
