Our customer Contact Energy, New Zealand’s electricity generator, required CMMS data to be sent from PI to SAP.
This PI to SAP integration was a key plank in their Enterprise Transformation drive.
The OSIsoft PI system is used at all of Contact Energy’s New Zealand power generation sites. Dimension Software was called on to employ its PI engineering expertise to design and develop a PI to SAP integration solution. The main objective was to send aggregated PI data to SAP PI.
The solution called for an engine to send scheduled and event based messages to SAP using ACE, AF, web services and PI Notifications.
A browser-based WPF user interface provided non-PI users with the ability to create tasks that integrate PI to SAP. From here users can create totaliser tags without having to understand the complex totaliser syntax.
