From the KPI list page, click on the menu option ‘Configuration’ for Meantime Between Failure. You will then be taken to the configuration page. Here you need to select an appropriate sensor to provide input data for the formula:
MTBF = Uptime / Number of repairs
- Status (availability): This sensor needs to be supplying data on the current status of your machine. Is it actively running or not? The virtual or physical sensor need to provide the following values: "0" for "OFF", "1" when the machine is operating normally, "2" if the machine is in failure.
- The targets functionality within the KPI configuration pages allows you to set up cautionary and emergency targets. You will then receive a daily notification if the KPI value for the previous 24 hours falls below a target. It works in a very similar way to the threshold function in the sensor settings.
Once this is done, you have enough to click save, upon which your KPI will become active.
