The power of the PI System for discrete manufacturing

Discrete manufacturers are facing an increasingly competitive market, driven by the rise of smart manufacturing practices and new technologies related to IoT, digital twins, AI, and machine learning. This has forced manufacturers to work smarter and faster, and deliver more with less.

The PI System puts data into the hands of operations teams, engineers, and maintenance specialists. It helps people use data to make better decisions. Improve asset health and operational visibility. Enhance product quality. Reduce energy consumption. Lower unplanned costs.

Asset management

Bring together disparate data sources. Prevent asset downtime. Maximize asset performance and OEE.

Sandvik is expecting to improve OEE by 1% per machine per year using the PI System.


Energy management

Collect energy data along with production planning data in manufacturing plants to better identify reduction opportunities.

Toyota is using the PI System to reach zero carbon emissions by 2050 by monitoring and optimizing energy usage across its manufacturing process.


Digital manufacturing

A reliable data infrastructure is the foundation for your digital manufacturing journey.

Michelin uses the PI System to monitor 1,500 product and process characteristics along the production line in real time.

Utilities monitoring

Monitor compressed air, electrical utilities, and gas flow anomalies to preserve manufacturing equipment and devices.

General Atomics uses the PI System to create automated equipment health status notifications and monitor the compressed air in tools that assemble wiring in an unmanned aircraft.


Scale your data infrastructure

Reliably bring new units online or run asset-to-asset comparisons.

Blount is using the PI System to create a unified global manufacturing data system for all of its plants and equipment.
