The PI System drives innovation and improvement, and supports decision making across thousands of major global manufacturing companies that use the PI System’s real-time and historical data in the following areas:
  • Quality
  • Variable costs (materials, energy, equipment, etc.)
  • Capital utilization
  • Regulations and compliance
  • Sustainability: Environmental, health, and safety
  • Technology / Innovation
Where the vision for plant data combines with the SAP supply chain or financial system, the need for PI System integration to SAP is applicable.

Following are examples of customers who have found value in system integration:

Their combined usage provides us with a global reach in our enterprise infrastructure.”
