Emerson offers operational analytics solution for manufacturing
Solution can detect 80% of the equipment failure modes contributing to production loss at a plant
US technology giant Emerson has developed an operational analytics portfolio that delivers actionable insights to address industrial manufacturers’ operational challenges.
The US technology giant’s portfolio of operational analytics focuses on the production itself with embedded domain knowledge that can impact and improve performance of simple equipment, complex assets, process units, and entire production plants.
Commenting on the need for operational analytics in the industry, chief technology officer at Emerson’s Automation Solutions business, Peter Zornio, said: “The amount of data created in a manufacturing facility today is unprecedented, and there’s a great deal of hype in the marketplace over how analytics can turn this data into performance gains.”
Zornio added: “Emerson’s solutions can detect and address 80% of the equipment failure modes contributing to production loss in a plant in real-time.”
The portfolio uses machine learning and artificial intelligence to identify discoveries and deepen insight to impact business performance, providing perspective previously unattainable with traditional analytics, the company added.
“With our acquisition of KNet and its integration into our Plantweb Optics asset performance platform, Emerson can provide not only some of the most advanced machine learning and AI tools in the industry, but also the connection to people and workflows, which are critical to digital transformation success,” Zornio said.
