We are excited to present the PI World Innovation Hackathon 2018 winners!

 

DCP Midstream kindly provided a sample of their data with boosters and compressors information. Participants were encouraged to create killer applications for DCP Midstream by leveraging the PI System infrastructure.

 

The participants had 23 hours to create an app using any of the following technologies:

  • PI Server 2017 R2
  • PI Web API 2017 R2
  • PI Vision 2017  R2

 

Our judges evaluated each app based on their creativity, technical content, potential business impact, data analysis and insight and UI/UX. Although it is a tough challenge to create an app in 23 hours, six groups were able to finish their app and present to the judges!

 

Prizes:

1st place: Sonos PLAY 5 + Echo Dot, one year free subscription to PI Developers Club, one time free registration at OSIsoft PI World over the next 1 year

2nd place: Bose Quiet Comfort 35 (Series II), one year free subscription to PI Developers Club, 50% discount for registration at OSIsoft PI World over the next 1 year

Team Oogway built a dashboard that enables the plants to make a more informed decision on the route boosters should take. This is done through providing the optimal plant for each booster and telling the current target of each booster. While giving the ability to drill down into each of the boosters to understand efficiency and anomalies.

 

The team used the following technologies:

  • Google Maps API embedded into PI Vision
  • PI AF SDK
