Leveraging the combination of on-prem PI server and OCS cloud, to feed data analytics and machine learning applications - IMA LIFE
This presentation focuses on an architectural design based on PI & AF server and OSIsoft Cloud Services (OCS) able to concentrate, store and distribute different streams of data sets. In IMA LIFE machines, slow sensors, with a sampling dynamics around seconds, generate data streams altogether with fast streams, extracted from low-level data buffers inside the PLCs or from sensors such as accelerometers.
All the streams available from the production line, aligned and structured inside AF and PI, are then connected to the OCS cloud. The cloud area acts mainly as a decoupler & distributor agent between the production area inside the pharmaceutical company, where the data reside, and the IMA data room where the analysis and data processing phase takes place. Thanks to the IMA LIFE analytical expertise and the OSI-PI real-time data flow, the final customer is able to keep the plant under control, having complete visibility on the efficiency of the line and its maintenance status.
Giacomo Guidi is R&D Isolation Technology leader at IMA LIFE, part of IMA group. He has been developing solutions over the past 15 years in the barrier technology field, focusing on aseptic processing for sterile pharmaceutical and radiopharmaceutical injectable. He has devoted great effort to understanding and improving the management of toxic and biohazardous processes, merging automation, high containment and regulatory requirements. He is working actively on fill-finishing projects, providing support in process design, innovative decontamination solutions and Pharma 4.0 digital transformation.
