Overview

AVEVA's Insight platform provides several visualization options for Historical and Asset Performance data in your plant. You can use "tag centric" content views like Trends and Status Boards each of which can be viewed independent. You can also view content related to an asset via an "asset centric" interface called simply "Assets".
