Since the new technology would replace existing applications in the production environment, it was necessary to minimize the impact on the engineers and operators ongoing work.
KBC worked with the refiner to detail requirements for a standardized Flow Meter Compensation application. The company chose to use the OSIsoft platform because of the flexibility the PI Asset Framework provides. Requirements included using standard templates to populate throughout all facilities, standard Units of Measure, and creating a self-service environment for the engineers.
KBC provided a solution that was a positive change for the operator’s Technology Lifecycle Management. It is a cost-effective solution that is easy to maintain, powerful, and reliable.
