Better Data Quality for Better Data Science with the PI System
Data Quality is much more than good or bad. It’s the how and what of the data collection process. All data has many “qualities” that affect our analysis of the data. Sensors have inaccuracies, data streams lack context, and processes have distinct states that may explain why the data is how it is. These qualities affect us all, whether we are the type that works in spreadsheets or in Jupyter. This talk will explore the aspects of data quality, why data quality is important, and what each of us can do to improve data quality in the PI System. Every stakeholder from Process Engineers to Data Scientists has a role in this process.
