Key features of the Meniscus Calculation Engine – an easy to use calculation engine to turn any raw data into the information you need

DEPENDENCY TREE

MCE maintains a dependency tree of all Items created in the database. This allows users to set up multiple tiers of calculated Items so changing one Item will automatically calculate all other Items that depend on that one Item

CALCULATION QUEUE

The Calculation Queue is a list of all raw and calculated items that are due to be re-calculated as a consequence of new data being received or an item property changing.

DATA TYPES

MCE works with any time series data regardless of the raw periodicity of the data (i.e. readings every 5 seconds, every minute, 5… 15… 30 minutes etc.).

ALARMS

With MCE users can easily set up alerts for any Item. Send alerts for a single Item to a specific person or send all alerts for a particular group of Items to a specific person. Set up High and Low limits for the alerts and these limits can include any calculation.

REPORTS

Scheduled e-mailing of management reports. Only available as part of an overall hosted service.

RESTful API

A fully featured RESTful Analytics API is available to configure, upload and download your application.

FOUR LEVELS OF DATA HIERARCHY

MCE contains four levels or Groups of data hierarchy. The top level could be the Company, the second level the Site and the third and fourth levels the Group and Sub Group respectively. The RAW and CALC Items that are the building blocks of MCE are directly associated to the Site.
