Every application in the Plantweb Insight suite has a similar look and feel for a consistent user experience. The main views can be broken into three layers.


Emerson Plantweb Insight Dashboard


The dashboard page is an umbrella overview of the asset class being monitored. This page will provide an aggregated view of the entire asset class and the most important insights. These insights will vary from application to application with examples including asset status, asset health, energy costs, emissions loss, critical alerts, etc. A brief trending of these key insights is also provided for historical tracking and trending.

Emerson Plantweb Insight Asset


The asset summary page is a tabular view of all assets being monitored. This view provides a similar perspective as the dashboard but on an asset-by-asset basis. This page is fully sortable, searchable, and filterable for quick prioritization and identification. The Asset Summary page can also be exported via CSV or Excel®

Emerson Plantweb Insight Asset Details


The asset details page provides specific asset details. These details include location, process, application, asset, and device details for each individual asset. It also provides calculated insights such as relevant-time status, health, energy, emissions, etc. information and a brief asset history. A notes section allows users to add notes and flag assets for follow-up.
