Typical Industrial IoT Applications with PI Server & XMPro

Predictive Operations

Create predictive operations applications such as predictive maintenance in a visual, model-driven approach that incorporates predictive analytics such as machine learning models in a simple, drag and drop user interface. Create “smart” applications that provide a competitive advantage through IIoT

Other predictive operations use cases includes:

  • Predict declining well production
  • Predict pipe corrosion
  • Predict manufacturing quality
  • Predict manpower requirements & utilization
  • Predict operational risk

Event Response Solutions

Simple alarms and alerts are often not enough to ensure appropriate and adequate response to key business events that impact operations, quality and safety. The ultimate value of an XMPro event-response solution is in reducing the latency between events and actions.

It also provides a mechanism for a formalized “Failure Mode Analysis” or FMEA to determine the root cause of an event and provide a visible, auditable decision trail of what actions were taken to provide the necessary governance and compliance in terms of risk management.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can XMPro integrate PI Server data with other data and systems in our business?

XMPro IIoT applications combine data from PI Server with other business information in a visual, drag and drop interface to easily create real-time applications that extend the reach of PI Server data beyond the traditional OT users in a secure but extensible way. It supports a “Citizen Development” approach to analytics and workflow processes that allows end users such as engineers to embed predictive analytics capability in data or event streams.

Key events in these event streams can be used to trigger actions in EAM and other business systems, or the “Citizen Developers” can create custom workflows and business processes that extend PI Server data to ERP, EAM, CRM, GIS, CAD and a broad range of other industrial business applications.

What makes an XMPro IIoT application for PI Server different?

XMPro closes the loop for IIoT application development, right from sensing key business events from sensors and real-time data sources such as PI Server, analyzing and deciding on what action is needed, through to providing the action management in 3rd party business applications and custom workflows and processes. It not only provides visualization through easy to design dashboards, but it enables business users to create multiple IoT applications for different use cases from the same PI Server data.

Is XMPro another IIoT platform?

XMPro is a visual, model-driven, IIoT Application Development Suite that typically orchestrate the interaction with the multitude of IoT platforms out there. XMPro is the conductor in an orchestra of IoT platforms and applications that each fulfill an important part of an IoT solution. The orchestration not only coordinates sensor data ingestion and storage but also facilitates analytics, actions and workflows.

The real value of IIoT is only realized when people, systems and machines can take action on the event data that is typically captured and stored in a traditional IoT platform. XMPro provides a visual way to work with platforms such as Azure IoT Suite, AWS IoT, GE Predix, SAP Hana in complex, heterogeneous environments.

Does XMPro support PI AF (Asset Framework)?

Yes, XMPro exposes the full capabilities of PI AF in its event streams and business processes. XMPro Active Listeners exposes assets through the standard templates and the Action Agents and integration Connectors provides a simple and standardized way to get data back into PI Server with PI AF. It is the quick and easy way to access the right data from the right asset in PI Server to drive the right actions and responses in your plant.

Can XMPro be used with Coresight?

XMPro event streams, dashboard and workflow processes can be accessed directly from within PI Coresight. It provides a single environment to manage your PI Server information.
