Analytics Software Maximizes Plant Performance
GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms recently announced advanced analytics solutions for its software portfolio that are designed to maximize the information that already exists in production operations, extract knowledge from that information and identify the opportunities to solve potential production issues before they impact the process. The introductions of Proficy Troubleshooter and Proficy Cause+, the updated release of Proficy Historian version 3.5, and the market leadership position of Proficy’s HMI/SCADA products combine to provide companies with unprecedented intelligence they can use to enhance process performance.
This powerful combination of solutions enables:
- better understanding of the causes of variation and problems in the process as well as the real-time impact of the process on production assets
- learning the relationships between disconnected data, extracting knowledge and building business cases with benefit estimations
- preventing unnecessary conventional ‘alarm bursts’ with more intelligent alarms that work in multivariate space, indicating causes of problems and providing corrective actions
- expert knowledge capture for making modelling and expert system technology available to all users.
"Everyone not only needs some method for archiving plant data and a system for supervisory control and data acquisition, but also an effective way of doing rapid process troubleshooting and other continuous improvement initiatives utilizing its real-time plant data," said John Leppiaho, Product General Manager for GE Fanuc’s Operations Management Software. "GE Fanuc’s Proficy Historian is already proven in industries all over the world for collecting, storing and retrieving mission-critical data. The addition of Proficy Troubleshooter and Proficy Cause+ gives users advanced analytics and control of their processes to drive operational excellence."
