KBC integrated multiple sources of real-time and near real-time data into the site PI System bringing together OT and IT information into an asset based data model. This model then allowed triggering of alarms for issues such as:
- High pressures
- Fluid loss
Many of KBC’s off-the-shelf PI components were utilized to solve the customer’s issues. KBC worked as a partner alongside the customer interacting with their engineering, IT, and management departments bridging communication barriers between the groups for optimal results. Analytics, visualizations, and automation of new assets were all key components of this project’s success.
