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.

Keynote: The PI System: Empowering People to do Successful Analytics

Today, analytics is promising to deliver new efficiencies within industrial operations. To maximize the value of industrial analytics, you need a strategic approach that addresses edge, enterprise and cloud tools for operations data while minimizing delays and failures from data inaccessibility, intensive data processing, and poor data quality. A successful industrial analytics strategy requires a data infrastructure approach that fosters trust and is optimized for enterprise-wide operational analytics.

This overview session introduces the latest trends within industrial analytics, highlights best practices for success, and shows how the OSIsoft PI System, edge, and cloud technology support different types of analytics for varying audiences – from engineers and managers to data scientists within IT and OT groups.

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.

Solve Your Business Initiatives With an Asset-Based Approach

Are you interested in replicating some of the fantastic achievements that you’ve seen so far, but are looking for a little help when it comes to the Asset Framework?  Attend this talk to learn about how the Asset-based PI Example Kits can help to jump-start your work in PI AF—and to even see just what it’s like to download, install, and use one of those kits.  Our goal is for you to leave with the knowledge you need to put these examples to work in your own PI Systems, so we’ll make sure to leave time for thorough Q&A.

The Five Best Practices Leveraging the PI System to Deliver Transformative Business Value in Oil & Gas
Distilled from a portfolio of user presentations from recent PI Worlds, Regional Seminars and from personal consultative experience, Craig Harclerode, OSIsoft's Oil & Gas Industry Principal, will summarize what he feels are the five best practices in leveraging the PI System to deliver transformative business value.
While the examples will be from the Oil & Gas industry, the "art of the possible" use cases are applicable to any industry.  The goal of the presentation is to provide the audience with pragmatic and proven ways to leverage the PI System more strategically at their respective companies as a critical operational data integration, application and analytical infrastructure.

Vistra Energy's Cloud Transformation in a Nationwide Power Producer
Vistra Energy acquired Dynegy in 2018, creating a nationwide power generation fleet with leading positions in ERCOT, ISO-NE, PJM and MISO via 57 generation facilities. This presentation will describe how Vistra Energy onboarded the generation units into their existing monitoring and diagnostics center. This was made possible by leveraging asset framework templates, 9 experienced engineers and 30 college interns. At the end of the summer, Vistra had a fleet asset framework hierarchy, a Cloud based federated PI server, PI Vision screens and ECG Predict-IT APR models based off the asset framework templates. Subsequently, the effort now shifts to standardizing the site PI ecosystem to create a more reliable, stable and low-touch environment. Utilizing Agile Project Management fundamentals, a small team will deliver value through improved communication, quicker planning cycles, and value-add solutions to site specific problems with a goal of enabling a Cloud migration of site PI servers.

Analytics is the discovery, interpretation, and communication of meaningful patterns in data and applying those patterns towards effective decision making. ... Organizations may apply analytics to business data to describe, predict, and improve business performance.

My PI Story: Royal IHC & Rolloos

Daniel Stoyle of Royal IHC and Martijn Handels from Rolloos describe why they chose the PI System over cloud solutions when they needed to make large amounts of industrial data available to their customers. (Presentation “Fleet-Wide Remote Dredging Vessel Monitoring” from PI World Barcelona 2018)
