Process manufacturing companies continuously strive to optimize overall equipment effectiveness, performance, and profitability, while complying with new and ongoing regulations. With the right tools and expertise, the wealth of data generated by these companies from sensors, instruments and assets could be analyzed and used to optimize processes. But traditional “big data” solutions require complex IT projects and data scientists to build and maintain models. Aside from being costly and time-consuming, this approach can create resource bottlenecks and at the same time underutilize their own process and asset experts.
TrendMiner from Software AG enables domain experts to analyze, monitor and predict the performance of manufacturing processes via an intuitive user interface, without the need for support from data scientists or IT. With TrendMiner, process engineers and operators can easily search for trends, question their process data directly, create fingerprints for early warnings, and predict the performance of batch, grade, and continuous production processes.
With TrendMiner, process and asset experts can, with unprecedent ease and speed:
Use contextual information from 3rd party business applications to gain additional awareness into operational performance.
Process Engineer 4.0
To benefit from the full potential of industry 4.0, process and asset experts must be empowered with analytics to answer their own day-to-day questions. With use of our self-service advanced analytics solution, process engineers will become analytics aware and enabled. Process Analytics Engineer will be better equipped to improve overall equipment effectiveness.
Classical model-based predictive analytics typically require expensive projects and data science expertise. For many analytics questions, it is faster and more efficient to use a self-service analytics tool, designed with operational end users in mind. Robust algorithms and familiar interfaces maximize ease of use for non-data scientist users.
TrendMiner reads all the industrial data generated by your production processes (time series data from sensors, instruments and assets). This big data can then be analysed to identify trends and create actionable information to solve production issues, troubleshoot problems and monitor processes and assets in real-time.
