Analytics with the PI System

Illovo Sugar Africa’s Lloyd Melrose tells how it wasn’t an advanced or expensive project they used to improve overall OEE by 30% in a 3 month period. It just took simple reporting of the right information to the right people using the PI System.

Visual Data Analytics for Industrial Operations: Finding the best BI and PI System tools

Many of today’s visual analytics tools have been created for business and financial applications and users. Operations managers and engineers need analytics tools specifically designed for industrial operations, which can deliver real-time insights into process and equipment performance. In this session, we'll explore visualization approaches and discover the options best suited for your operations and business needs. We’ll demonstrate how industrial engineers can easily build operational views with PI Vision, use tools like PI DataLink for ad hoc data exploration in Excel, and leverage Power BI from Microsoft for reporting business and operations data together – all with minimal technical skills.

Enabling Enterprise Analytics for IT Groups Needing Operations Data
Optimizing the value of your critical operations data means going beyond your operations teams. Sharing the operations data with your IT team enables business data to be combined with operations data for added insights, and advanced analytics projects to deliver insights not possible before. To gain value from these enterprise analytics projects it’s imperative these insights are transferred back into the operations environment and the tools used every data by operators and process engineers. 
In this session we explore key challenges for supporting IT with advanced analytics projects and how the PI System is best utilized to streamline IT enterprise analytics projects, and importantly transfer insights back into operations to drive efficiencies.

Delivering high quality operational data for Advanced Analytics
Advanced analytics tools and platforms allow businesses to ask more from their operational data and obtain new insights.  Yet 60% of Big Data projects fail. Simply ingesting raw operational data into your favorite business intelligence tool or data lake creates significant challenges and barriers to success. Problems with data access, data quality, data structure, and outputs from “black boxes” typically lead to unreliable conclusions or predictive algorithms that are never adopted.
In this session, we’ll cover the challenges of using new analytics tools with operational data; share how the PI System and the PI Integrators deliver analytics-ready data; show how subject matter experts in operations can easily curate data that can be understood by business and IT operations; and demonstrate how the 3rd party advanced analytics tools from Amazon, SAP, and Microsoft, can consume the data for trusted and quality analytics.
