Advanced Asset Condition Monitoring and Analytics in the 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 where IT infrastructure and even process data storage is often duplicated and with limited access. The diagnostic portion of such a system provides important actionable information for machine healthcare, but again with limited access, limited functionality, and is sometimes not very transparent.
A data historian, such as the OSIsoft® PI System®
This applies to measurement techniques requiring calculations, such as maintenance KPIs, performance monitoring, and even to automatic decision support of assets. Moreover, monitoring data and analytics can be correlated with data from other systems connected to the data historian such as CMMS and EAM.
