Control Station announces technology partnership with OSIsoft

February 20, 2017 – Control Station announced the formation of a new technology partnership with California-based OSIsoft, LLC.  The partnership brings together suppliers of operational intelligence technologies to better serve the growing market demand for advanced and actionable process analytics.

Control Station is one of a select group of software technology companies to join OSIsoft’s Partner EcoSphere.  The Partner EcoSphere engages technology and service firms in the creation of value through real-time data collection and analytics.  OSIsoft’s PI System is recognized worldwide as a data infrastructure for utilities, oil & gas companies, process manufacturers, and a number of other industries. The PI System functions as a real-time data storage and distribution engine.  Application technologies like Control Station’s PlantESP control loop performance monitoring (CLPM) solution utilize data to uncover performance trends that are often too subtle or complex to be identified by a facility’s engineering and operations staff.

PlantESP is a CLPM technology that has established itself as a solution for plant-wide process diagnostics.  PlantESP integrates with the PI System, utilizing the data to proactively identify issues that negatively affect the performance of a manufacturing facility’s regulatory control systems.  The PI System’s Asset Framework provides a uniform, hierarchical structure by which a manufacturer’s varying sources of process data are organized.  PlantESP currently leverages the OSIsoft Software Development Toolkit to associate the 1000s of “tags,” or data streams, and their properties with specific PID control loops. 

PlantESP is a CLPM platform.  Since its original release in 2010 PlantESP has grown steadily and it is now deployed on five continents.  As a technology for optimizing a production facility’s regulatory control systems, PlantESP is enabling manufacturers to proactively identify and resolve a wide range of performance-related issues.   Significant gains in performance from improved production quality and throughput to decreased energy consumption and unplanned downtime have been documented.

Control Station will participate in OSIsoft’s Users Conference ( scheduled for March 20-23 in San Francisco.  The annual event draws on over 2,000 attendees, representing over 500 companies from major sectors of the process industries.
