The Power of Asset Frameworks

As an industrial operator, your investment in the OSIsoft PI System has already generated improvements in asset optimization. Organizing your PI data into a standardized format enables analytics to be run, generating new insights and delivering on your operational KPIs. Central to this effort is the ability to build an asset model using the PI Asset Framework (AF). The more AFs you build, the more assets you digitize, and the more the organization benefits.

Moving Beyond Spreadsheets

Teams, however, struggle to create AFs. And when an AF is built, it may not be 'fit for purpose' for use by other stakeholders. Instead, they are left to manipulate a vast array of data by cobbling together point solutions - or worse - use hundreds of spreadsheets. This gap, between creating AFs and enabling analytics, not only limits ROI and potential outcomes/insights - such as moving to a condition-based maintenance strategy (CBM) - but also drives up costs.

Build AFs 10X Faster

The Element AF Accelerator is an asset data modeling package that builds and maintains enterprise-ready OSIsoft Asset Frameworks (AFs). With Element, you can join data from the PI System with other metadata through software and export Asset Frameworks back to the PI System. It offers a powerful suite of cloud-based software and professional services that reduce the burdensome tasks involved in manipulating data to create AFs by up to 90%.

Element and OSIsoft

Sharing a common history

Element’s mission is to make industrial data incredibly easy to use, in order to unlock insights never before possible. Element was founded in 2015 by Sameer Kalwani and David Mount. At the time, David was also an investor in OSIsoft through Kleiner Perkins. Sameer split his time between customers and the OSIsoft headquarters, incubating the Element product. It was through this close interaction with OSIsoft customers, employees and stakeholders that he was able to narrow-in on the opportunity to help customers build their Asset Frameworks (AFs).
