Combining OSIsoft’s real-time leading plant information platform with eVision’s vast amount of equipment data in its digital Permit to Work solutions allows organisations unequalled insight into the current state of their assets and equipment.
More and more companies are switching to digital Permit to Work systems to support their daily operations. This marks important progress and also sees impressive results: accidents and injuries decrease, risk becomes more understandable, and processes streamline and simplify. But if the data used in digital systems is not connected or up to date, the concept becomes less effective. Making decisions based on ad-hoc information can often mean the difference between preventing an incident and an incident occurring; using disparate systems, dashboards and infrastructure can complicate and delay this process. The need for integrated solutions is an overarching strategic objective for many industry-leading organizations.
Incorporating OSIsoft PI System with Permit Vision enables the end user to view the actual and authorized state of all equipment, ensuring unprecedented situational awareness and serving as a basis for cumulative and predictive Risk management. An integrated system that allows the workforce to be better prepared, better informed, and better connected. Live equipment data is visible directly from the Permit Vision graphical overview, and users can view critical real-time information during various steps in the permitting, isolation, and risk assessment process. All from a single solution. Conversely, permit data (such as isolations in place) can be visualized in the PI ProcessBook.
