Think Big, Start Small, Go Fast: Lessons Learned Deploying PI AF to 30 Offshore O&G Platforms
OSIsoft PI World is a great forum for learning how other OSIsoft customers are using the PI System. Over the years we have seen amazing examples of companies in the Power & Utilities, O&G, Pharma, and Chemical industries deploying PI AF at their plants to deliver tremendous value for their teams. These presentations are inspiring. We sit in the front row. We take notes and get fired up about rolling out PI AF when we get home. More often than not, when we get home we stall. We might build a few AF templates and arrange some hierarchies at a single site but when it comes to rolling AF to the rest of the fleet, we get stuck and then a year passes and we're right back in the front row, listening to another amazing PI AF story. Building AFs, getting them out to every one of your plants and managing their lifecycle doesn't have to be hard. Join us (this time from the comfort of your home office) to hear another amazing PI AF story but this time - take home a recipe for success.
