Software company TrendMiner and digital plant process management (PPM) solutions provider eschbach will be partnering globally to integrate their products,TrendMiner and Shiftconnector. Existing and potential customers of both companies in the manufacturing and process industries can create a closed information loop between control room teams and process and analytics engineers.
Manufacturing data will be available on-demand, creating a continuous flow of information. TrendMiner’s advanced analytics capabilities help to predict process deviations. Shiftconnector brings these process deviations into a control room where shift personnel will contextualize these deviations as well as add additional information regarding why the deviation occurred. This important context data is then returned to TrendMiner as a starting point for further operational improvements.
"The power of humans and advanced analytics join forces via this leading-edge combination of solutions," said Andreas Eschbach, CEO of eschbach. "By combining the best of both worlds, we see great potential to create a sea-change in the process industry."
"The integration will accelerate analytics-driven decision making in the control room and cross-department collaboration for the next wave in operational excellence," said Thomas Dhollander, CTO of TrendMiner.
Both companies will be previewing the integrated solution at OSIsoft PI World, September 16–29 in Gothenburg, Sweden. TrendMiner will be at booth number 01 and eschbach at booth 17.
