It doesn't matter what industry you're in: Buying a great product doesn't automatically guarantee your success. You must understand your end user's specific needs and motivations. Simplicity is elegance.
This presentation will show how National Grid Power Plant Operations began with a basic PI System installation and developed it into a departmental standard that we continue to expand and leverage year after year. Our PI System implementations are so effective, our operators and managers have learned to automatically rely on them. In this presentation, we'll discuss a number of challenges we experienced and show how they were resolved. Our most recent PI System application focuses on the real-time monitoring of NERC CIP Critical Cyber Assets and Infrastructure. We will outline our strategy and show you examples of how we are integrating PI DataLink reports, eNotifications and smartphones to provide our teams with collaborative desktop and mobile tools to minimize or eliminate potential non-compliance sanctions.
