Partner Challenge Presentations: Transpara, SISCO, SmartSignal
This is a group of three presentations showcasing partnerships between OSIsoft and Transpara, SISCO, and SmartSignal, respectively. The Transpara/OSIsoft project provides visual KPI for enhancing business intelligence. SISCO uses a PI server in a high-speed remedial action loop system which allows condition-based maintenance reports. SmartSignal in partnership with OSIsoft allows for comparison of actual real-time data with empirical models, aiding in early problem detection and maintenance.
