The PI System – Leveraging the IT/OT Relationship to Identify Optimization Opportunities
“Companies are beginning to see operational data as an asset. However, operational data comes from multiple control systems, IoT solutions and manual entry. Data rates vary from sub-second to monthly values. There are few standards to label the data points or provide context. Access all available operational data points can be a daunting challenge. PI Asset Framework (AF) has changed that.”
Webinar: IT/OT Best Practices – Faster Enterprise Deployment of the PI System
“It is no exaggeration to say that data will be the most valuable resource for most companies in the future. Continuing to operate separately not only slows the adoption of solutions based on technologies that fall outside of operations’ comfort zone, but also exposes companies to fault or security risks that could significantly impact production. That is why we must adapt quickly to stay smart in such a rapidly changing environment.”
Regional Seminar – Vancouver & Calgary: Leveraging Operational Data to Support Business Decisions
In 2014, PotashCorp decided that it was important to transform our approach to decision making by integrating real time information to our business processes to make more timely and informed decisions. PotashCorp has used the PI System for many years and in 2014 began to implement PI Asset Framework. We analyzed our data and determined for that users to take full advantage of information across all assets efficiently, we needed to implement standards. We have integrated key data from other business systems to make required data readily available to the user community. Based on proven results, we are now implementing this approach across the organization.
