That the OSIsoft PI System consists primarily of a real-time database server that stores readings and are then archived. These data sets can reach a huge volume. Therefore, OSIsoft provides a patented compression method significantly reduces the amount of data.
To configure the measurement series and setting up interfaces to the PI managers are the tools PI System Management Tools (SMT) and PI Interface Configuration Utility (ICU), and various command line tools.
In addition to the PI Server PI AF Server provides another pillar of the PI system. This Asset Framework Server is based on a SQL database. It stores information about the measuring points in the plant environment. For plants, plant parts and measuring points, templates can create so-called templates. These templates make the work easier and make the analysis of data easier. The AF Server may also perform calculations and conversion operations in other units.
In the PI AF Server all kinds of data are brought together and organized. Tags and their values can be about their position in the system or the process is very easy to find, without the user having to know cryptic names.
The data sources from which the PI system receives its data are diverse: OSIsoft offers over 400 different interfaces to prepare the data for the PI System.
Finally, the PI data of different front-ends can be retrieved and analyzed - for example:
The PI Process Book is a tool with which to so-called process books production processes can be clearly displayed with all parameters, including:
The visualization possibilities are huge.
PI DataLink is a reporting and analysis tool based on Microsoft Excel. From DataLink out you can access the information stored directly on a variety of additional functions. So fast statistical analysis of production data can bring. Monthly, quarterly or annual reports are easy to create, no matter whether it is emission data or production values.
is a notification tool with the information in different ways, be sent via email or SMS to the plant manager or maintenance crew. The acknowledgment of the information must be acknowledged. About the notification and acknowledgment of minuted. It is also possible to set up multiple levels of escalation.
Applications for PI Notifications are many
