The PI System, Remote Diagnostics and the Collaborative Supply Chain
Condition monitoring is the natural bedfellow for the PI System, but it has traditionally been delivered as a deployed solution or remote service. These access the low-hanging fruit in terms of value, but neither option is ideal for collaboration between Operator, OEM and Service Provider. The advent of OSIsoft’s cloud-based data sharing breaks down barriers and allows companies to realize the harder-to-reach value of condition monitoring across vendors. The new generation of data acquisition, sharing and analytics means that equipment operators can start to move towards a truly risk-managed approach, based on the increased confidence in the predictability of the equipment health and performance. Rolls-Royce is working towards a model of 90% predictability with their PI System
