Reliable process data, current and historical, is critical to day-to-day plant operations and stewardship. Adoption of our data governance processes ensures that source data and its metadata accurately propagate from source (e.g. field instruments) through the various levels of control and manufacturing execution system hierarchy (e.g. SCADA, DCS and historians).
Data can be confidently relied upon for operations analysis, decision-making and financial systems, with false, invalid, missing and inaccurate information having been eliminated. Changes at any stage are synchronized throughout the data chain, and auditable records of who made changes (and why) are kept to manage the data lifecycle.
