With APM Reliability, a Predix Asset Performance Management (Predix APM) solution, asset-intensive organizations can leverage advanced predictive diagnostics to analyze data, and detect and diagnose asset issues before they occur. This allows companies to schedule downtime and control costs on their own terms. APM Reliability is designed to work across all assets (fixed, rotating, and non-rotating), all equipment types and manufacturers (GE and non-GE), and all industries—across the plant and across the enterprise.
Capabilities of APM Reliability
- Digital twin blueprints: Digital twin blueprints enable the analyst to anticipate or identify failure of an asset with longer lead-time to improve reliability and performance by modeling the asset’s expected versus observed status. The analyst can leverage structured time-series data and unstructured data, including process parameters and condition alerts, in the context of the assigned maintenance strategy and actual maintenance performed. It can also compare operating conditions and performance with other like assets.
- Root Cause Analysis: Root cause analysis (RCA) uses a standard methodology for investigation of failures, provides better understanding and analysis of the underlying cause of failure, and captures and institutionalizes that information to help prevent future occurrences.
- Reliability Analysis: Reliability analysis provides a comprehensive set of analytical tools to help understand causes of asset failure patterns and the true cost of failure. These tools can help you analyze data to identify bad actors and recurring asset failures, develop operational and maintenance strategies, and evaluate the effectiveness of those strategies over time. Wizards allow users to quickly build growth, Weibull, cost of unreliability, and production analyses.
