Navigating TIM Studio

Assets created in TIM platform are organized in a hierarchy that helps user navigating throughout the platform. This section explains various elements of this hierarchy and their associated relationships.



Users are organized in Teams. As an example, we can use an organization that has a team for Sales forecasting and a team for Predictive maintenance. Management of teams is available when cliking on the Teams icon in navigation sidebar as shown in figure below. This is where user may add, remove or edit a team.


Selecting a team in a sidebar menu brings user to a single team management page where users may be added or removed, workspaces may be added, and the team may also be deleted.



Work of a team can be further organized in workspaces. Sales forecasting team may have workspace for Latin america sales and European sales. Workspaces are used to organize datasets and their associated use cases. Selecting a workspace therefore shows a tab with datasets and a tab with use cases that belong to the selected workspace. Selecting a workspace also updates horizontal breadcrum navigation bar.





In the beginning workspace is empty and user should start by uploading a dataset(s) into this workspace. After uploading, users will be able to leverage TIM’s time-series database TIM DB, and TIM Studio will give users an overview of metadata and statistics that might be relevant in the data exploration and preparation phase.


TIM DB includes lightweight data version control system, so you can keep track of your version history and update your datasets as new data becomes available.

Use Cases​


Uses case is linked to a single dataset and aims to provide an overview of the efforts in a project.

For each use case, users can provide all relevant information, to serve as explanation for others who might benefit from their work, and to serve as a reminder should they return to the work at a later point. They can also keep track of all the experiments contained in the use case, and get an overview of who is working on what, when.




Within a use case, multiple experiments are contained. An experiment is the working point in the TIM platform, where users will find the core of the analytics. Each experiment is focused on a single type of analytics: either forecasting or anomaly detection.

Within an experiment, users get to explore the data, again, and can browse through configuration options. Once the desired settings are selected, an ML request can be triggered and TIM Studio will show how the calculation progresses.


After the model has been built and applied, it’s time to examine the results. Users can get insights into the models that were used, measure the performance and adjust were needed by iterating over the job.




A user can view and manage their own profile. This profile is accessible via the user icon at the right side of the top blue bar.


By selecting "Profile", a user navigates to their profile page, where they can see an overview of their personal data, the license they are part of, their colleagues and the user groups they are a member of. Administrator users can manage their license on this page too.



A user can also view and manage (for administrator users) the license they are part of in more detail. The license details page is accessible via the user icon at the right side of the top bar.


By selecting "License Details", a user navigates to the license detail page, where they can see an overview of the license they are part of and the users of that license. Administrator users manage their license on this page too.
