The pulp and paper mills of Evergreen Packaging have been using the PI System to monitor operational performance for over 28 years. Evergreen signed an Enterprise Agreement in 2014, allowing its PI System implementation to transcend the stagnated state that had developed and Evergreen is now working hand in hand with the OSIsoft EA team to monetize its data. Evergreen is using all the tools available in the Enterprise Agreement toolbox including User Conferences, YouTube learning videos, managed PI and the NOC, OSIsoft Field Service Engineers, PI AF Cookbook sessions, and a 3-day PI AF Workshop. This presentation tells the incomplete story of Evergreen's journey: from pure historian to an asset framework that is developing one business solution at a time.
