Data Historians Don't Have To Be Expensive

It's exciting to discuss the virtues of collecting and storing years of process data with engineers and operators.  We often hear the ideas that are exchanged about what could be done and how the process could operate more efficiently if data was available to key individuals.  It has struck me recently how many times these data historian discussions seem limited by the fear of budget and deployment time.  Generally, by the end of a preliminary discussion, someone at the table sighs and makes a statement like, "It would be nice, but I'm sure the investment would be too much to consider".

Three Ways To Get More From Your Historian

Nov 8, 2017 8:20:00 AM / by Jeff Knepper posted in Axiom, Data Historian, Products

Your data historian holds more analytical potential today than you may realize. This process knowledge powerhouse can help you transform operations and fundamentally change the way time-series data is interpreted.  However, few companies have taken the necessary steps to actualize their data historian’s full potential.  Most engineers, supervisors, and operators are either working double-time to meet spikes in demand, or are handling duties outside their typical job description to reduce cost. The bottom line? You are likely too busy elsewhere to spend time mining the knowledge base waiting inside your process historian.
