Analytics with the PI System

Illovo Sugar Africa’s Lloyd Melrose tells how it wasn’t an advanced or expensive project they used to increase 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: 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.
10:35 AM - 11:15 AM
Centralized Data Strategies for Modern Oil & Gas Operations – why are they so important?

The Oil & Gas industry is increasingly looking to move towards a data driven and technology focused way of working.  There are challenges of scale and performance, data quality, data silos, integration and cyber security. There are also an increasing number of confusing and conflicting messages from within the industry as to how best support digital operations by means of industrial data lakes, cloud-based IoT platforms and advanced ‘Big Data’ predictive analysis. This presentation will attempt to clarify some of the confusion and mis-communication that we have seen on these topics.  Drawing on examples from across the Oil & Gas industry we will show how getting our data strategies right can quickly deliver $millions of improved productivity, cost savings and healthier assets.

Connecting PI with Advanced Analytics tools – Development of an Advanced business intelligence architecture in MOL Downstream
Recently MOL Group has recognized the opportunities in the usage of the Machine Learning methods. This was one of the driving forces for developing an advanced business intelligence architecture within the MOL Group. The implemented architecture and its modeling abilities help us to better understand our data and discover useful information to support better decision-making. This presentation will show you how does our PI System fit into the advanced analytics architecture. The presentation will also cover use-cases and future developments of our PI AF applications
12:00 PM - 12:45 PM
Introduction to the Modern PI System (includes demo)
The PI Server is no longer just a storage for your time series data, it also allows you to build a representation of your assets and events, perform streaming online calculations and notify you on important events. Come see what's new in PI Server and how it can help you with all your tasks. Not only will we touch on what's new in 2019, we will also give you a glimpse of what's coming in the next 12 months.

A Data-centric Organization is a Foundation for the Pharmaceutical Industry: What are the gains?
As the pharmaceutical operation becomes more global - with increasing complexity in development, more usage of contract manufacturers and suppliers – this creates challenges and opportunities for optimization and improvement in quality, supply chain management, efficiency and delivery of a drug to the market. 

The presentation will cover use-cases from leading pharmaceutical companies and their journey to becoming data-centric and data-driven. These organizations were underpinned by governance and support of data integrity and scalability of their data infrastructure.

Examples of 10% increased OEE, 50% reduced production costs, 300% increased titer, 75% reduced batch review times and 60% reduction in validation efforts are just some of the recent values.

3:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Gedeon Richter at the Gate of Industry 4.0

The solution to complex and important business challenges is in the exponentially increasing amount of data. The corporations who recognize these patterns and context could gain a significant competitive advantage among the competitors. The OSIsoft PI System will be the backbone of Gedeon Richter’s journey towards Industry 4.0. Based on this robust data infrastructure we implement automatized electronic batch recording, Business Intelligent and Big data systems in order to find the solution to our critical business issues using advanced machine learning algorithms.
