The food and beverage industry has increased production and decreased cost and energy in the past 35 years. How are they able to do this? OSIsoft’s Pi System has been the number one component in the digital transformation in the food and beverage industry. It has helped so many companies save time and money by showing them all of the things they could do better or do without.
The food and beverage industry has been able to extract data from manufacturing equipment, through the Pi System, and translate it into something we can understand to decrease costs without compromising your company’s principles. The information that the Pi System can pull is endless! Through OSIsoft’s Pi System Kellogg’s has been able to save $3.3 Million by cutting down on energy use from their HVAC system. Deschutes has been able to save $8 million by learning better temperature control, machine learning, and predictive analytics. The Pi System was able to show Tyson that increasing the weight of their sausage was actually MORE efficient than using less. It would take countless hours to find and understand the data you can get from OSIsoft’s Pi System if you tried to do it yourself. And that is if you have the knowledge of how to even begin to pull that information.
OSIsoft’s Pi System works by taking data from your personal server/equipment and public servers, translating the data into one understandable form, and organizing it into different categories for you to base your decisions on. Making decisions with no data to back you up is like driving blindfolded. You need to know what your surroundings are in order to move forward, just like you need to know all the facts to make an informed decision.
