Closing the Gap Between Data and Results
Ensuring usability & quality of streaming data & events in the process industries is an essential step in the journey to Digital Transformation and Smart Manufacturing.
Supporting every phase of the deployment and lifecycle of the OSIsoft PI System infrastructure
Promoting best practices for the OSIsoft PI System
Delivering turnkey solutions based on best of breed applications for the OSIsoft PI System.
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 abstracts these differences and enables 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 contexts in the process industries out of the box. Alarm sentinel also implements industry standard KPI's which are considered best practices.
Asset performance is the number one topic in the process and manufacturing industries. Everyone transposes 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.
In the age of Digital Transformation data quality takes a whole new meaning. It has 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 in self-serve analytics.
