Source: AVEVA

The food and beverage industries are characterized by large numbers of plants with diverse information systems, stringent manufacturing conditions, thin operating margins, and increasing regulatory requirements. Driven by globalization, consolidation, and the need to reduce time-to-market, the complexity of the industry’s manufacturing environment requires agility based on real-time information.

OSIsoft’s PI System is a well-accepted product in the food and beverage industry. When considering a software purchase or investment, management typically requires a justification based on expected business value that will be delivered. This paper outlines some of the expected benefits from a PI system installation, as they impact key performance indicators (KPI). Because some companies may place more weight on certain business drivers than others, this paper will assist companies in determining potential sources of value, and evaluating them based on their own internal guidelines.
