“Industrial manufacturers generate vast amounts of data, but few companies are really gaining the insights needed to optimize their operations,” said Stuart Harris, group president for Emerson’s digital transformation business. “With Plantweb Optics Analytics, we are providing manufacturers with advanced analytics capabilities that are easy to deploy and quickly deliver results.”
New technologies present a wealth of opportunities for manufacturers today. In fact, analytics has the potential to deliver more than $4 trillion of growth in industrial manufacturing, according to McKinsey.
Emerson’s Plantweb Optics Analytics is an industrial IoT analytics software that collects and interprets operational data to provide real-time visibility into equipment health and operational performance. Plantweb Optics is part of Emerson’s award-winning Plantweb digital ecosystem of transformational technologies, software and services.
Emerson’s Plantweb Optics Analytics software draws from a combination of data-driven models and principles-driven analytics to identify, predict and prevent more than 80% of common equipment failures, leveraging machine learning, predictive modeling and artificial intelligence to provide insight that impacts business performance. The company also recently introduced augmented reality (AR) technology for Plantweb Optics.
