Now more than ever, the OSIsoft PI System provides most of the tools needed to integrate successfully into your operations. Configure, don't program is the mantra. There are, however, times when a little code allows you to exchange data with a legacy system, or a customized visualization makes the interpretation of complex information a breeze. Operations personnel, already overtaxed by their data entry requirements and often frustrated by ham-handed methods always appreciated a well thought out and implemented solution.
Build a Little, Test a Little
Get prototypes into your users' hands as quickly and inexpensively as possible. Avoid the pitfall of spending too much time and money only to deliver something that doesn't work as intended. Many times, testing a quick prototype will reveal needs or opportunities that you might otherwise miss. Users appreciate the ability to play with an actual working prototype and the opportunity to contribute to the design.
