Predict-It Pathway Brochure 2022

The Pathway module expands upon the functionality of Predict-It by adding equipment-monitoring capabilities for startups, shutdowns, and other transient-state processes with a defined start and end. Protect your assets during vulnerable phases of operation, when changing conditions demand peak performance.

Predict-It greatly reduced the Human Resources required to achieve our goals and greatly increased the return on investment.

Predict Issues Before They Become Problems

Predict-It is a powerful analytical solution for OSIsoft PI users that monitors the health of critical process equipment. Predict-It’s anomaly detection modules cover all modes of operation, from start-up, through normal load, and shut-down. Highly accurate anomaly detection and correction of equipment degradation earlier in the development of faults help to keep your assets operating at higher availability, reducing ancillary damage, minimizing cost to repair while avoiding failures and lost revenue.

Advanced Pattern Recognition Module

Unlike products that monitor equipment using a first-principles approach, Predict-It employs Advanced Pattern Recognition for early detection of significant events. Modeling algorithms track trends in process variables on a continuous basis and compare them to historical operation. This Digital Twin Technology acts as a virtual model of an asset, creating a predicted trend that runs simultaneously with real-time equipment data.

Pathway Module

Quickly changing conditions can cause deterioration of mechanical assets, which will require additional a different type of monitoring. Predict-It’s Batch Module uses Multivariant Data Analysis. MVDA provides a summary of key variable influences, allowing faster interpretation and interrogation of start-up, shut-downs, or batch processes. Flagging batches, start-ups and shut-down that exceed statistical limits shines a light on developing issues that may not be seen during normal operation.
Expert Level Monitoring and Diagnosis

Diagnose Faults with Expertise

Once Predict-It detects an asset anomaly, engineers are tasked with putting a plan in place for addressing that situation. From compiling information on the anomaly behavior to diagnosing a potential fault, Predict-It has streamlined this process with the Diagnostic Reasoner Module. The Diagnostic Reasoner unites the knowledge of the Subject Matter Experts with a database of equipment specific faults in a Bayesian framework, allowing differentiation and bringing clarity in scenarios that involve uncertainty as an equipment issue evolves.

Diagnostic Reasoner Module

The Diagnostic Reasoner module capitalizes on the use of Causal Asset Networks (CANs). CANs are designed for the specific make and model of the assets they evaluate – resulting in more precise diagnostic results. The Diagnostic Reasoner suggests multiple root causes for failures and assigns exact probabilities for each outcome. CANs can be configured by ECG, your reliability consultant, or by your own subject matter experts, as well as purchased from the ECG Fault Library. Capture the knowledge of an SME within the Diagnostic Reasoner and never lose the expertise of your most seasoned employees.
