Empower Engineers with Self-service Advanced Analytics to Improve Operational Performance

Companies are looking at digitalization to improve their profitability and maintain their market leadership. Many years of historical time-series data is underutilized & the data has a great hidden potential to improve operational performance. If all subject matter experts are empowered with analytics, especially those related to the product production processes, operational excellence can be speeded-up greatly.

In this presentation, we will explain how self-service analytics in the hands of process and asset experts can help continuously improve operational performance. Business users can analyze, monitor and predict process and asset performance within their operational context using pattern recognition and machine learning technology.

The use of TrendMiner is shown in a practical hands-on session and additionally through some typical customer use cases, covering key capabilities such as root cause analysis, recommender engine, early warnings, contextualization and knowledge capturing. These capabilities help engineers, control room personnel and plant managers to continuously improve operational performance through reducing the carbon footprint, increasing yield, improving plant safety, reducing downtime and predict maintenance.
