How does your company handle PI tag naming governance?

Question asked by RebeccaHay on May 7, 2019

I am interested in knowing how different companies handle the governance of their PI tagnames. Is this controlled by Scada or IT or another group?  Is that considered part of the PI admins job or more of a business function?

 

Also how do you handle the naming of PI tags associated with PIAF analysis?  Does your PI admin have to go through another group to bless tagnames or do they follow general naming guidelines?

 

We are implementing a new standardized naming scheme which will be maintained by our Scada team.  It is largely based on drawing and equipment ids which works great for data coming from field devices but not so much for other stuff.

 

Any advice from others that have taken on this task would be greatly appreciated!
