Flexware Innovation was recently named an OSIsoft® PI System™ Integrator partner due to the depth of knowledge, industry expertise, and specialized manufacturing technology integration service offerings.
OSI PI’s scalability and feature set make it a leading choice for organizations seeking a robust data historian software to fuel operational excellence. Flexware’s team of highly technical engineers enjoy working side-by-side with clients to architect solutions, including OSIsoft’s PI.
Flexware is currently supporting ten PI clients and is OSIsoft-accredited within the following areas:
From a historian software startup in 1980 to a proven global leader, OSIsoft enables operational intelligence. Their PI offering empowers businesses to capture and leverage sensor-based data, systems, and people by collecting, analyzing, visualizing, and sharing large amounts of high-fidelity, time-series data from multiple sources and across all operations for operational excellence.
The result: real-time, actionable insights that empower companies to optimize and transform their business, including efficiency, asset health, productivity, sustainability, quality, safety, and security.
In the current operating environment, as more businesses expand into sensor-enabled equipment, more assets, and more streaming data, the need for and value of historian software such as PI is greatly increasing.
OSIsoft has installations in 127 countries and is widely used across manufacturing, energy, utilities, pharmaceuticals, life sciences, data centers, facilities, and the process industries, as well as the public sector and the federal government.
Presently, Flexware has implemented OSIsoft’s PI System™ within ten individual plants, including two life sciences Fortune 500 companies, three large steel/metal manufacturers, and two chemical-based manufacturers.
The most recent implementation being within a life sciences biopharmaceutical setting, where material traceability and historical data collection is required by global government regulatory agencies and law enforcement and critical for end-user safety to ensure patients receive only genuine medicines.
This client is utilizing the PI server historian to obtain important data from equipment within their manufacturing process. The solution has allowed for robust continuous manufacturing material tracking in support of batch release, product serialization, and traceability.
We’re clearly big fans of OSI PI and the impact it’s having on operational excellence through the use of real-time historical predictive insights. Its reliability, feature set, and scalability make it a prime candidate for organizations seeking a powerhouse data historian software. We are proud to continually deliver on our mission of unleashing the potential of technology, freeing people to focus on what’s next.
As an OSIsoft-accredited infrastructure/installation specialist and application developer, our PI-specific team looks forward to the opportunity to pilot the software and perform a proof of concept (POC) for your organization. Additionally, our partnership with OSIsoft extends to Flexware instructor-led PI training courses at our Fishers, Indiana headquarters.
