2018 - PI World - San Francisco - Analytics Track
PI System Analytics, Fit for Purpose
Attend this talk as we cover scenarios to illustrate the different levels of analytics that are fit-for-purpose when using the PI System - for example, what calculations and analysis do you do in AF, when do you use Matlab for advanced calculations that hook into AF and when do you call on “data science and machine learning ”. Use cases will focus on equipment i.e. pump or motor or compressor etc. as well as on a process. We will also underscore the values and limitations of the different analytic approaches.
