Smart Field Instrument Data
Sharing expertise to convert sensor and instrument data into information

Businesses get increasingly influenced by the disruption caused by energy transition, new digital opportunities, and new perspectives of the workforce (and society at large). Resulting in a different context for businesses and their assets going forward. What will be the impact to the work and work processes when decisions/recommendations are prepared by machines and taken by people? And one step further, what will it mean for the workforce when decisions are prepared and taken by machines, and people only intervene? How will actionable information and insights derived from SFID support the changes and drive transformation of operations and maintenance?



The SFID Working Group is part of the WIB and has the following purpose:

  • To deliver significant time and cost savings, and reduce personnel field exposure by leveraging the capabilities of SFID.
  • Widen the knowledge of SFID, its value, and benefits, by analysing and investigating how it can be processed into actionable information and insights
  • Facilitate independent studies for SFID to investigate improvements and drive standardization for simplification.
  • Strive to collaborate with key industry-, technology- and other owner/operator associations to broaden and increase awareness of applications for SFID  
  • Exchange relevant information and experiences between working group members and develop use cases
  • Establish guidelines for the deployment of SFID usable for members and suppliers/manufacturers
  • Investigate the impact of SDIF on:
    • Work processes: integration in common process industry business processes.
    • Workforce organization
  • Publish articles / position papers on technical topics
