The actual PI Ssytem architecture is a powerful framework for the development, governance and continuous improvement of operational and asset intelligence. Real time KPI and process pattern identification can be used for advanced operation and asset management, examples are early fault alerts and process deviation detection; anticipation can be enhanced by the proper identification and monitoring of the TaxonomyItemHtml causes. The presentation will show a reference architecture (PI-AF and PI-ACE) for the implementation of advanced multivariable process and asset behavior monitoring, with examples from the mining and power generation industry.
