VIZIYA’s WorkAlign IIoT Solution

by VIZIYA Corporation

The VIZIYA IIoT Solution connects your real-time PI System data with your CMMS, and then makes the data actionable, creating a more predictive maintenance organization.

Solution Overview

Maintenance organizations worldwide are responsible for ensuring company assets are running at peak performance to meet production requirements at all times. Many of these assets are equipped with sensors that capture reams of generated data. Currently, organizations may struggle with interpreting the sheer volume of data generated and how to use this data to to improve. With VIZIYA’s WorkAlign IIoT Solution, you can now turn asset data collected by the PI System into actionable items sent directly to the maintenance team, such as creating and sending out a work order. This action is also saved back into the company’s ERP/EAM system, thus closing the data loop. VIZIYA’s IIoT solution will: Remove the difficulty of integrating big data with your ERP system. Create groups of actions to be executed when an event is raised by a sensor. Auto-generate work orders, work requests, quality plan entries, meter readings and more. Generate timely email and push notifications to make sure your maintenance team is always in the loop. VIZIYA's IIoT solution allows you to connect your assets at an entirely new level. Using our IIoT solution, you will become a more predictive maintenance organization.


VIZIYA’s WorkAlign IIoT solution is a robust and powerful product for maintenance organizations that allows any web-service to be monitored for events that can be used to trigger groups of actions in your backend ERP system. A full featured application provides real-time insight into the health of your assets and provides an easy-to-use interface for interacting with your integration. With built in capabilities to listen to OSIsoft PI System you can immediately start listening for events and creating actions to perform when they occur. Create actions and workflows and attach them to events. When an event is detected the VIZIYA IIoT Solution can push notifications to maintenance team members, alert planners and schedulers that a new work order has impacted the schedule, call an out of the box event such as Create Work Order and Create Notification or call any custom stored procedure or web service. Built in capabilities to write data such as a work order number back into OSIsoft PI System completes the communication channel between reliability and maintenance.

Solution Approach

Viziya IOT bridges the gap between OSIsoft PI System and ERP systems such as SAP and Oracle. Primarily intended to provide maintenance information flow, Viziya IOT can be configured to perform various tasks in response to PI System events. Viziya IOT also includes a dashboard that provides realtime insight into your Asset Framework. A basic example of an event handler could do the following:

  1. Create a Work Order in the ERP system.
  2. Update the PI System with the related work order number.
  3. Send notifications via email.

More sophisticated workflows that include updating priorities on existing work orders and updating tertiary systems can easily be created by the end user. Conditions can be set for various workflows. A simple condition is the status of the equipment. If the equipment has been taken down for maintenance the PI System can be flooded with sensor events related to the technician offlining the equipment. In that case, the technician could set an operational status on the PI System asset that could be evaluated by Viziya IOT and events triggered by that offlining could be ignored. Any REST target can be set up as an action to be performed within a workflow.
