McHale understands that performance monitoring is more than just numbers on a computer screen. It has to effectively link multiple plant systems together to convert data into useable information that is easy to understand. The presentation must be clear and constructive for the operations staff. Often, a performance-monitoring system will have multiple users with different needs. The system must be flexible enough to provide the appropriate information to each user. If it’s not simple to understand and work with, it’s just not worth the trouble.
