Understanding the past, present and predictable future behavior of plant and asset operations allow for more timely and focused decisions and actions. However, many businesses limit the application of operational data to immediate visualization and reporting needs.
How can you make the leap from your current practices to take advantage of more advanced analytics? You must understand the past for continuous improvement, enhance real-time data with pattern analysis, and evaluate future behavior and risks. SCAN by CONTAC is a PI System-powered technology that embeds process and asset knowledge within Asset Framework (AF) for greater benefits and deeper insights.
SCAN embeds behavioral knowledge of processes and assets within Asset Framework (AF) to enable automated coordination, alerts, and trigger actions within operational support systems. Operational data can then help businesses discover and model underlying cause-effect relationships, estimate the future behavior of the plant and asset operations, set up intelligent KPIs, and receive early alerts for process deviations and asset failures.
SCAN by CONTAC is fully integrated with OSIsoft technology and makes extensive use of Asset Framework (AF) modeling and calculation management. Visualization reports and dashboards can be implemented using standard OSIsoft tools, such as PI ProcessBook, PI DataLink, and PI Coresight as well as third party tools. SCAN can be installed at the client site or provided as a remote service. Services cover everything from training to post-implementation and evolutionary development support.
