Deschutes Brewery is the 7th largest craft brewery in the United States. As a new generation of brewer, with additional education and work experiences outside of zymurgy, starting to join Deschutes Brewery a decade ago, they recognized the opportunity and power in data analysis as an advantage in making the best beer in the world. Deschutes Brewery has embarked on a project this year to replace their in house data collection and reporting system and unite their other production and data systems - using the PI System infrastructure. This presentation will cover the past, present and future of data analysis using the PI System at Deschutes Brewery and also present a quick win for Deschutes Brewery utilizing the Asset Framework, Asset Analytics and PI Coresight.
