Chevron’s MidContinent/Alaska Business Unit looked to implement a centralized process data historian to aggregate field data and make it easily available for consumption by business applications. Chevron used OSIsoft PI as the data historian and AF2.0 to store meta-data, to provide a logical naming structure and to keep object structure consistent through use of AF Templates. The automation of the creation of AF Elements and PI Points ensures that the data in SCADA and in the PI Data Historian is always in synch and minimizes the workload on the SCADA and Historian administrators and support staff.
