Get the Most out of Your Assets with the PI System and Maximo
In the age of the Internet of Things, pieces of equipment that were once isolated hunks of metal are now equipped with sensors and communication modules, resulting in a network of assets that can (and should!) be monitored with the PI System. These technological improvements, however, have increased the cost of assets at a time when workforce numbers are decreasing. As a result, the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC), like many companies, has increasingly needed to squeeze as much value out of their resources and assets as possible. In this talk, SFPUC describes how they integrated PI System data into Maximo. With this data, they were able to move from scheduled to condition-based maintenance to optimize asset life and performance while simultaneously improving the efficiency of their maintenance staff.
