2008 - User Conference - Amsterdam
Vitens - From Data to Information
Two years ago Vitens gave a presentation at the OSIsoft User Conference about the business case and the architecture of their PI System’s project. Now Logica has completed a project together with Vitens to roll-out this PI System project at all locations within Vitens (>150 sites).
The presentation covers positive results of a multi-plant approach using the OSIsoft solution:
- Business case and objectives
- Realization of objectives
- Standardization of processes
- Real-time based management information
- Fast realization of changes and new technologies
- Less cost ICT
- Fast failure response.
Significance: Success of this ambitious multi-plant roll-out has convinced Vitens of the future need for:
- Use of PI-AF
- A central PI solution with HA
- Web-based visualization
