What We Do
Yorkshire Water produces 1.3 billion liters of clean water and treats one billion liters of water in its waste water networks every single day. The company has 686 treatment facilities spread across northern England and 83,000 kilometers of water pipelines, which is enough to circle the earth twice. The cast iron pipework makes the system prone to leakage, which can significantly affect water availability for its five million domestic and 136,000 business customers, drive up costs, and result in hefty fines. To mitigate leakage risks, Yorkshire turned to the PI System to take a predictive approach in order to significantly shorten the time it takes to identify and fix a system leak.
PAREXEL International is a global consulting company specializing in pharmaceuticals and medical devices. From strategy to condition of clinical trials to post-release marketing, for over 30 years, PAREXEL has helped pharmaceutical companies get critical drugs into the hands of consumers as quickly, safely, and cost-effectively as possible. Typically, it takes a drug manufacturer an average of 10 years from the time of discovery to bring a drug to market. One of the most complex and expensive aspects of this 10-year process is clinical trials, a period when patient participation and adherence is imperative to success. To increase the success rates of clinical trials, PAREXEL turned to the combination of wearable devices and the OSIsoft PI System.
With the high-fidelity insights from the PI System, WHUD pinpointed a leak spilling nearly 147 million gallons a year, reduced its costs by over $1 million and postponed $15 to $20 million in upgrades.
RWTH Aachen University, located in Germany, is one of the largest technical universities in Europe. Founded in 2014, the university's PEM (Production Engineering of E-Mobility Components) institute focuses on designing electric mobility solutions. To make electric vehicles more affordable for mass production, engine batteries must be produced in a cost-effective manner. With the help of the OSIsoft PI System, PEM Aachen used operational data to optimize the production process in order to: predict battery quality during production in order to eliminate the cost and time associated with end of line testing, reduce overall production cost by as much as 20%, and shrink batter scrap rates from 10% to 2%.
Founded in 1959, Fincantieri is the fourth largest shipbuilding group in the world. Headquartered in Trieste, Italy, the company is primarily known for manufacturing Carnival Cruise ships and military vessels. Crew members must be familiar with the ship from the first day of operation. Since the crew changes every year, it's imperative to have a replicable, vessel-specific training program that is available before operators even set foot aboard the ship. Delphi, the logistical arm of the company responsible for training the crew to operate the ship and perform maintenance, needed a cost-effective way to do in-depth, onshore education for watercraft and support ships crews. Given the unique needs of each vessel, a one-size-fits-all platform wasn't enough, so Delphi introduced ShipView, a remote training platform designed to go beyond simple manuals. With the help of the real-time data coming from the OSIsoft PI System, Delphi expanded its use of ShipView into a fully immersive and interactive experience that provides valuable operational and maintenance simulation training.
