ENERGY DEVELOPMENTS' JOURNEY UP THE DIGITAL MATURITY CURVE

Listen to Energy Developments and Optimate's journey together from first install on-premises to its use as an environmental compliance tool, to becoming the essential backbone of Energy Developments' Global Control Centre and eventually to PI System's new home in the cloud.  Energy Developments owns and operates an international portfolio of over 980MW of power generation facilities in Australia, North America and Europe utilizing a large range of fuel sources.

ANALYTICS: IT'S WHAT YOU DO WITH THE DATA THAT COUNTS
Industrial Analytics is the buzz of the day. Big data, data lakes, machine learning and artificial intelligence are offering the allure of new insights and answers to efficiencies.  However sometimes the first big win comes from a small improvement and the data you already own.  Learn how you can break down seemingly complex big data problems into a manageable sequence of steps with the PI System.  Even without waiting for completion of a full-blown statistical model, your operational experts can often spot anomalous patterns with little more than a few events captured by PI System event frames and compiled in a report.  And when you are ready to push data to advanced machine learning (ML) tools, the PI Integrator line is available to jump-start your data science initiative with clean, ready-to-consume, reliable data.

HOW PIAF IS SOLVING THE GROWING BURDEN OF PRODUCTION REPORTING
Mining companies, much like other industries, need production reporting to ascertain the best performance of the plant on a daily basis. These reports are normally compiled manually by Metallurgists in spreadsheets and are continually manipulated as they don’t look right and take a lot of time to produce! With asset structuring, calculation and aggregation using PIAF, also templating automated reports for display or print from the single source is reducing labour time in collation of data and de-risking the potential for error in production reporting. At one Gold site Metallurgists as opposed to previously spending their time collecting and reporting numbers, they now have time to improve production numbers!
