AMS - Export or print list of overall values for a given point or machine?

 

How do I go about exporting or printing a list of overall values for a given point or a given machine?
(I realize I can get graphic trend, but I like to have numerical overall values to cut/paste into other reports).

 

(I apologize for all my AMS newbie questions.. our vibration guy is unavailable for a few months and I'm trying to keep my head above water fumbling with this AMS)

Hi mate,

I'm not at my pc but go to the old reporting tab, and there is a report for last measurement survey. Here you can specify overall or a parameter band level. Run this report and put into report viewer, copy this. Open excell and paste special where you can seperate the text and off you go.

Other guys on here can fill in any bits I missed, if they don't I'm back at the Pc on Thursday and can get some screen shots.

cheers
James

Bingo! Thanks. 
I was able to do what you mentioned and I'm typing exact steps so I can find it again:

Select "Tools" Tab (along the top)
Select  "Document / Reporting" (upper left)
Launch "Exception Analysis"
Click "Data Summaries"
Launch "Measurement Point History Report"
Use the dialogue box to identify specific equipment, time period, and "periodic vibration"


That seems pretty easy now. Somehow I had been stuck searching  within the "Reporting" tab (next to tools on top). That only gives "parameter based exception report" and "measurement exception analysis report".

I've got a lot to learn, but it's helpful to be able to bounce these questions of you guys to get me unstuck from simple stuff.

Pete, most of us old guys just stay in the "Tools" tab.  Are you wanting a history report?  If you just want the last values try the "Abbreviated Last Measurement Summary" which includes the Overall plus 3 other parameters of your choosing.  It's a bit more concise if you just want the current numbers.

Thanks Rusty. That's closer to what I was looking for.

And the spectral plots generated from the new "VA" tab are terrible compared to what plotdata offers. rgds

Yes, Plotdata is the backbone of my analysis and reporting. You just hit the "copy" button on the toolbar, and then paste the plot right into a Word file.

Hmmm, so far I have been focusing on the plots in the vib analysis tab.  At least to me it's similar to what I used to do on Emonitor (navigate to machine and point in hierarchy to find trend, spectra, twfs).  Also since we are starting up new AMS with all our old data in Emonitor, I have developed a routine where I review new data in AMS by setting up a window on top half of my screen with emonitor displaying the newest spectrm and window in bottom half of screen with AMS displaying the old spectrum.  Sometimes size the windows to line up the horizontal axis. Once I have that set up viewing the first point, I can "page down" in each of the two windows to see/compare all the other points on the machine, one by one.  (page down key does the same in both applications). It's sort of clumsy but I don't have a better way at the moment to recognize changes in brand new collected data.

Plotdata...I'll put that on my list of something to learn about AMS. There's a lot of things on that list though...
