CVE 2.6.0 adds a direct interface to the OSISoft PI database which for most CVE Network users will eliminate intermediate Excel spreadsheets. Also in CVE 2.6 are enhancements for Fault Prediction, Visual Cluster Analysis, Alarm Rationalisation and usability features from users at over 150 large process plants worldwide.
Start alarm rationalisation from process history instead of from the alarm log and you can set much better alarm limits relative to an operating envelope of the process. CVE predicts Alarm Performance at Alarm Review time. Fact-based reviews save many, many man-days.
Geometric Process Control (GPC) is essentially a patented graphical technology which has been applied to the process industries to enable new levels of process control that were previously not achievable. Process engineers can directly leverage their process knowledge without mathematical intervention.
