Using Shifts in Machine Data for Analytics on the Dashboard

Hello all,

I´ve created a dashboard to analyise the performance of different machines.
The Problem here is, some of the machines only work one or two shifts and not 24/7.
And as soon as the machines run out of material to process they are going in alarm mode.
That means I have a whole shift which shows up as Downtime for the machines, even when there wasn´t a problem.
Is there a possibility to let the machine track the tulip shitfs on it´s own ?
I know I can filter the data of apps according to the shift´s but it doesn´t show me this option when I analyse the machine data.

Here is a picture of the analysis:

If anyone has an idea, that would be great :slight_smile:

hello @Mthesz, and welcome to the Tulip Community!! come introduce yourself at: Welcome to the Community, let's meet!.

while adding a filter by shift is not available in the same way for machine analyses as it is for app analyses, there is a solution that works well.

essentially, you can add a filter to the analysis to filter the time when the machine entered that state. here’s an example:

to create that filter, you’ll want to add the following: mid(date_trunc(@Start Time , 'hour') + '', 11, 5) = '{{time}}' replacing {{time}} with all the start times you’d like:

you can then link as many hours as you’d like by using Or in the Filter.

does that make sense?? let us know if you’re able to implement this!!

Hello @gio ,

thank you for your fast and detailed answer :slight_smile:
Your solution works perfect :smiley:

no problem, happy to hear it’s working well for you!!

it would be great if you can share what you’re building (and what machines you’ve connected to) in Show and tell - Tulip Community.

and again, welcome to the Tulip Community!!
