We are ready to assist you in transforming streaming OSIsoft PI data & events into tangible business and operational outcomes.
At Omicron, we are all about the OSIsoft PI System, Microsoft SharePoint, and Office 365. Our mission is to improve the overall efficiency and sustainability of manufacturing operations and create tangible and lasting business value. We accomplish this by optimizing the use of data and information through best practices and best of breed applications for the OSIsoft PI System. We help our customers meet their business and operational needs, objectives, and goals by focusing on the three (3) main aspects of information management in process and manufacturing:
- Ensuring that data collection infrastructure is robust, secure and resilient.
- Integrating all the aspects of collecting, validating, processing, and organizing streaming data and events to maximize the usability of information for users, business processes, other applications.
- Addressing the gaps between data and the targeted business outcomes and developing fit for purpose solutions to close these gaps.
The consulting we provide and the solutions we propose are backed by a guarantee of long-term support and maintenance to ensure their perennity.
Supporting every phase of the deployment and lifecycle of the OSIsoft PI System infrastructure

Delivering turnkey solutions based on best of breed applications for the OSIsoft PI System.
Alarms & Events Management
Alarms and events generated by control systems and the OSIsoft PI Systems are critical information. Because they originate from different sources, we need to merge them in a manner that abstracta these differences and enable easy correlation with operational data.
For this purpose, we chose the Alarm Sentinel solution of Dimension Software Ltd. which is a solution that fits most integration context in the process industries out of the box. Alarm sentinel also implements industry standard KPI's which are considered best practice.
Asset performance is the number one topic in the process and manufacturing industries. Everyone transpose and adapts Overall Equipment Efficiency concepts to their situations which are all unique but use the same common industry standards. For monitoring Asset performance, we chose the RtDUET application of RtTech Software because of its ease and speed of implementation and because it fits in place in the majority of continuous and discrete manufacturing operations through configuration only.
In Smart Manufacturing, content management is key to enabling workers to collaborate and perform in continuous improvement activities. It involves dealing multiple data types, data presentations, documents, drawings, external references like weather and prices, charting and trending, ad-hoc analysis and specialized visualization, etc. Example of the later is geolocalized presentation of streaming data and events for which we use the Real-Time GIS product. The needs of users change every day because the problems and challenges are in constant evolution. For this solution area we have chosen Asset Intellect, a product of Dimension Software Limited which integrates OSIsoft PI and non OSIsoft PI content in a single portal.
Data Conditionning & Analysis
In the age of Digital Transformation data quality takes a whole new meaning. It as evolved from a "zero-defects" strategy to a "fitness for use" strategy which is best served by model based data validation and reconciliation. For this purpose we implement Sigmafine and Tag Data Validator, which system of checks and balances based on data cleansing rules, statistics and engineering principles that can Monitor, assemble, transform and condition datasets suitable for digital transformation. Data Analysis is the other imperative. It is important to provide technical staff with the best tools and systems to drive innovation and continuous improvement. For this purpose, we work with TrendMiner, the leader is self-serve analytics.
