Monitoring a PI System with PI
Food & Beverage and Life Sciences
Based on the PI System Monitoring (PSM) templates from OSIsoft, we implemented a turn-key solution that can be used to monitor both hardware and software that is used in a complex PI system at Roche. The system allows us to provide instant feedback on the current as well as the historic state of the system, it automatically sends out alarms to support personnel, and it creates tickets in our IT ticketing system for any detected malfunction. A lot of the configuration (creation of the AF structure, tag creation) can be done automatically, using a combination of standard PI functionality as well as PowerShell scripts that we developed for this purpose.
