OSIsoft has specific standards that ensure each presentation is interesting and valuable to all participants. Your chances of acceptance improve when you meet the following requirements:
END-USER FOCUS: Presentation must be delivered by a PI System end-user and must describe the value obtained from the PI System. Support by a third party such as a system integrator is allowed, but lack of end user participation may disqualify a presentation. Third party vendor product/service contributions to the solution may be acknowledged briefly in at most one to two slides.
PI SYSTEM-SPECIFIC BENEFITS: Tangible benefits (monetary, percentages, etc.) and intangible benefits from the PI System must be clearly specified. One popular approach, for example, is to show how you used data from the PI System for condition-based maintenance, making it possible to prevent costly downtime or dangerous events. Process optimization, productivity improvements, cost savings, improved asset lifecycle management, increased safety of operations, etc. are examples of benefits that show the value derived from the PI System.
FOCUS: Subject and scope need to be clearly defined. Presentations are 30 minutes long including question and answer time with the audience, so they must be highly focused and get right to the point.
