Proficy Troubleshooter - a powerful analytical tool

Proficy Troubleshooter is a powerful analytical tool that uses the latest cutting-edge technology to extract knowledge from existing historical process data. The tool is used off-line to identify causes of production problems and identify opportunities for preventing these problems in the future.

Proficy Troubleshooter can be used for batch, discrete and continuous processes. It allows a user to visualize the process problems and their causes, through modeling and simulation of the process using historical process data. This knowledge can then be put into practice with Proficy Cause+ to monitor the process in real time and provides operators with the knowledge and information they need to keep the process under control at any given time.

Proficy Troubleshooter enables an "Intelligent Historian" distinctly different from, and provides significantly more value than competing Historians.

Proficy Troubleshooter

Proficy Troubleshooter adds value to Proficy Historian by that it is now possible for a user to automatically find the gold grains in the history data using multivariate analysis. With this product, users can:

  • Find the likely causes of process problems and variation
  • Extract the procedural rules automatically from the data
  • Determine the causes of bad batches
  • Find correlation between variables
  • Estimate the cost benefit of introducing a real-time solution before you start
  • Build and simulate a real-time solution before deploying in other Proficy solutions such as Proficy Cause+

Data have been collected and saved in manufacturing industries for years. Analysis of these data has evolved from simple manual trend analysis of individual signals to be used for monitoring the efficiency, quality and traceability.

Proficy Troubleshooter takes us to the next step and uses advanced mathematical algorithms to give us an unprecedented insight into our processes. This results in new knowledge that makes it possible to improve the quality and increase the yield of our production.
