Unfortunately, most CM solutions are proprietary stand-alone systems where IT infrastructure and even process data storage is often duplicated and with limited access. The diagnostic part of such a system provides actionable information important to machine health, but again with limited access, limited functionality and sometimes not very transparent.
A data history, such as the PI System, provides an overview of all production assets from an operations and maintenance perspective, and is implemented in many LNG plants. It is no longer necessary to use proprietary servers to store CM data. CM system vendors and other third-party service providers can still share their expertise on the PI System, but analytical calculations can be performed directly in PI, making it more accessible and transparent.
This applies to measurement techniques that require calculations, such as maintenance KPIs, performance tracking, and even automatic asset decision support. Additionally, monitoring data and analytics can be correlated with data from other systems connected to historical data, such as CMMS and EAM.
