GE Digital has released new upgrades to its on-premise industrial analytics software, Proficy CSense. The software uses AI and machine learning technologies, as well as Process Digital Twins, to help enable its users to combine data across multiple data sources to more quickly identify problems, discover root causes, predict future performance, and automate actions.
Providing five analytics capabilities in one package, Proficy CSense has helped organizations globally to reduce costs by turning raw data into more rapid business value and continuously improve quality, utilization, productivity, and delivery of operations. Users, such as engineers and data scientists, can analyze, monitor, predict, simulate, and optimize, and control setpoints in real time through Proficy CSense.
Additionally, Proficy CSense provides the capabilities to mine insight from historical data and develop, test, and deploy simple calculations, predictive analytics, and optimization and control solutions to help reduce variability and improve operations.
New features in this version include control optimization tools, such as a PID (Proportional-Integral-Derivative) control loop tuning assistant to calculate recommended PID loop tuning settings. In addition, there is a system identification assistant to help estimate process transfer function models from historical data for process simulation or control optimization. The new version also includes the ability to import and analyze historical data from OPC UA servers, as well as read and write analytics to those servers as a client. The software is now available in Japanese, Chinese, Russian, and French.
