The way we extract data is a well-thought-out process, backed by years of research and constant
development. It is a step-by-step introduction, with no additional infrastructure or hardware. Instead, we are
using measuring components already in place to turn data into good data.
Introducing E365 Analytics®, the first step is to ensure access to all measurement and maintenance data, no matter of formats or structures. With an agnostic approach, we collect both historical and real-time data to make accurate comparisons over time. By integrating various data from sensors and protocols, relationships between data and information are made. The incoming information is then structured to be analyzed.
Next comes validation, as all information should be linked to, for example; locomotives, wagons, axles, wheels, and components. Using advanced algorithms, we filter measurement errors and noise in all data and information.
For us, this is the most important step of the process and that is why we have a hybrid approach to the data. We always make the right adjustments to process good data. Because if no good data can be collected; decisions can’t be improved. Here, statistics and time series are being analyzed. We forecast Remaining Useful Life (RUL) of business-critical components and the need for preventive maintenance based on defined maintenance and safety levels. Everything happens in real time and updates occur as new data comes in.
The data that appears after the analysis is visualized according to adopted customer specifications so that it best suits the organization’s needs. The visualization of the results occurs in real time and means that the customer constantly has access to accurate, updated information. Finally in this step, it is important to work with continuous follow-ups to ensure good decision-making in the next step.
Who makes the decision and what infortmation is needed? Predge provides a good basis for better operational decision-making with flexible information. As our customer, you have a powerful decision support tool for planning and control of maintenance related to Remaining Useful Lifetime. You get a maintenance and operations strategy that increases reliability, availability and profitability.
By using solutions presented by the Predge team, the results expected are as following:
