ExperTune's PlantTriage software now features Root Cause Finder
ExperTune’s PlantTriage software features Root Cause Finder, which is engineered to automatically find the root cause of process upsets. The technology works by evaluating correlations between instrument readings throughout an entire manufacturing facility. Upsets that start in one part of the plant are reflected in the data patterns from other parts of the plant. By evaluating the correlations between these patterns, and the time-shift from one to the other, PlantTriage is designed to determine the most likely sources of process variation.
Root Cause Finder results are displayed graphically at the top of PlantTriage’s Process Interaction Map. This display also shows other affected process areas. The color-coded results show the extent and the time-lag of the cause.
