The Advantages of Plant-wide Historians vs. Relational Databases

This paper discusses the advantages of plant-wide historians over RDBs for data collection and time-series data optimization to enable true process visibility. There are critical capabilities that manufacturers need to consider that position plant-wide historians as a better option for leveraging raw data from sensors and other real-time systems to improve production for operational excellence.

In an increasingly competitive environment, companies need to gain a sustainable advantage by achieving operational excellence, a journey that begins with data for process visibility. The vast amount of information continually increases, and it’s imperative for companies to truly understand and control their manufacturing operations by efficiently collecting critical data and maximizing its value. Optimized data enables better and faster decision-making, increased productivity and reduced costs.
