OSIsoft PI System for Mapping Real-time Data of the Rail Networks
OSIsoft offers a PI System for rail infrastructure that turns data into real-time actionable insights. The system collects operational data from rail equipment and operations to provide detailed information about the railway network.
The system collects high-fidelity data to allow users to maintain the railway system to prevent failures from occurring, saving costs and avoiding delays.
Real-time data for railway operational conditions
Rail organisations can make better use of operational streaming data to optimise railway operations.
The PI System searches and analyses data, adds context by visualising the data in the railway network, and shares the results throughout the rail organisation.
The results are improved collaboration, innovation, digitisation, and ultimately a transformation in rail operations.
Instant notifications for railway maintenance
More than half of all train delays are caused by problems on the railway network.
Through common visualisation and analytic toolsets of the PI System, operators can detect and avoid disruptions caused by asset failures, resulting in improved rail services and availability.
Reduced operating costs for railways
Interrupted trains and limited capacity have a substantial impact on profits. The PI System allows organisations to control costs by focusing repair works to minimise downtime.
Visibility of the network allows rail organisations to identify where action needs to be taken. Conditions-based maintenance and state of good repair are initiatives that can be implemented with the PI System.
Monitoring solutions for rail lifecycle maintenance
The PI system can assess the condition of rail infrastructure to provide an alternative to calendar-based maintenance. It provides information for if a repair is needed or an investment in new assets is required.
Ultimately, this results in better equipment health and control over investments.
Software for managing railway incidents
Combining operational data with geospatial information results in the ability to assess incidents, events and routes in real-time. This is critical when managing assets across thousands of miles of track.
Advanced data calculation system
The PI System is comprised of the PI Server, PI System Connections, and PI System Tools. The PI Server is the foundation, gathering critical time-series data in a way that makes it organised, searchable, and easy-to-share.
Capabilities include advanced calculations of stored data, defined process events, batch comparison, notifications, system monitoring and management.
The PI System connections allow for the collection of data from diverse systems and include more than 450 interfaces.
Lastly, PI System Tools allow for access, visualisation and analysis of all collected data.
The result is one system that helps with impactful decision-making with data being provided to the right people when it is needed.
The PI System is trusted to process more than 1.5 billion data streams across approximately 19,000 sites and is embedded in critical infrastructure across 125 countries.
