  • Eliminated separate infrastructure; used PI System already installed
  • All date in same ‘system of record for ease of correlation
  • Accessible to everyone in the plant
  • WAVEFORMS IN PI!! (The key to accurate analysis)

Results:

  • Can now identify critical assess health accurately
  • We know when we’re healthy (and when were sick)
