Data, Data Everywhere, But How to Make it Connect?

With billions of data points, PSEG knew they had a valuable business asset. But there was no way to link that data in meanful ways to inform better decision-making. In fact, it was hard even to understand the breadth and depth of data available.

Asking the Right Questions

GE and PSEG worked together to identify the factors that could affect performance. Is it people? Is it equipment condition? Equipment limitations? Reliability? Maintenance? Mapping the performance potentials enabled the team to put together a plan to collect the correct data and convert it from data to understanding to actions.

Knowing What's Right and What's Wrong

Insight from 20 Key Performance Indicators now helps the company generate the right amounts of energy at the right time to sell at the right price. Using real-time operational data and experience-based analytics helps prevent things from going wrong – from unplanned outages and minor equipment adjustments that can improve efficiency to operating decisions that reduce maintenance costs and extend asset life. Instead of working to a calendar, a clock or a forecast, PSEG now works to reality.

Integrating Technology into Everyday Activities Changes Processes and Culture

Software and analytics are helping guide actions across the business. So engineers and operators make better decisions about maintenance, inventory and logistics. For traders, these deeper, rich insights provide near real-time visibility of operational capability and potential within the plant with greater precision.
