Attribute value

← Return to Glossary

The attribute value reflects the specific data of an entity's attribute, such as flow rate.

For example, if we look at the Flow Rate attribute, we may have a number of different sources of this same data, such as Actual Value (from a historian), Theoretical Value (from a simulation), and Planned Value (from a forecasting system). Each of these attribute values can be associated with that attribute, creating a much more diverse view of your data.

The most common use of attribute values is to assign historian tags to the values. This allows us to create an asset model, where the users no longer need to remember long and complicated tag names. We can also store things like calculations, strings, and numbers to attribute values.

In P2 Explorer, you can recognise an attribute value through its syntax:


For example:

Flow Rate!Actual
