Advanced Asset Condition Monitoring and Analytics in LNG Industry Using OSIsoft PI System
Digital transformation is finding its way into a lot of industries, including LNG. Condition monitoring (CM) for production asset healthcare and reliability is an important part of this transformation. Unfortunately, most CM solutions are proprietary stand-alone systems. IT infrastructure and even process data storage is often duplicated. This creates extra cost in IT capex, maintenance, training, license fees and cybersecurity, and oftentimes with limited access. The diagnostic portion of the system provides important actionable information for machine healthcare, but again with limited access, limited functionality and sometimes not very transparent.
1- Learn how CM, events, notification, data storage and visualization is done by PI,
2 – Learn how calculated measurements such as performance monitoring of assets can be done in PI,
3 – Learn about doing Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) analysis of machines by PI,
4 – Learn about implementing automatic decision support
