Keynote: Digital Transformation with Today's PI System

Our world is getting smarter and more connected with each passing day.  The question that each business must face, therefore, is how to take advantage of this intelligence. One answer is to harness that intelligence to achieve a digital transformation.  Achieving that transformation involves more fully embracing and leveraging both that digital intelligence and the data infrastructures that are already owned and in place.  Through this, organizations can discover and create new opportunities to transform their products, processes, and customer services.  This session will explore how OSIsoft's digital data infrastructure can help you to create and discover such opportunities to transform your world. We'll explore ways to connect and empower people with data, to improve operational insights by integrating data with advanced analytics and visualization tools, and to more fully take advantage of the latest PI System capabilities, OSIsoft services, and OSIsoft partners.

Digital Transformation of a Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCC) Unit Empowered by OSIsoft PI System

The digital transformation of an FCC unit is presented using a synergy of industrial informatics and automation systems. The unit is designed, constructed by CERTH/CPERI and operates the premises of CERTH. At the core of this transformation is the data warehouse (OSISoft PI) that facilitates the seamless integration of the involved systems and entities. The involved systems are a fully automated Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) where >20 analytical instruments provide online information to the data warehouse and a Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition System (SCADA) that controls the unit. Overall the operation of the unit is characterized by various data intensive procedures and has increased needs for data exchange across various levels of systems and among personnel with different roles and expertise.
