PI Coresight was renamed PI Vision in 2017
Williams experienced early success with the PI System by leveraging the increased availability and visibility of operational data to avoid a turbine/compressor set failure at a gas processing plant. As keeping our compression horsepower online and available is critical to our business, we have continued employing the PI System to drive value with a strategic focus on compression equipment performance monitoring. Along the way, opportunities have been enabled by modeling turbine and compressor performance using PI AF, exception-based reporting with PI Notifications, aggregation of data with PI OLEDB Enterprise, visualization of fleet comparison data in dashboard displays, putting operational data in the hand of engineers and technical specialists with PI Coresight. This talk will highlight the path taken from that early success to our current suite of equipment performance monitoring applications and some of the wins that the applications have enabled along the way.
