True innovators are always looking for opportunities to analyze and optimize processes. After all, it’s how you continue to push the needle on operational improvement. However, just as there are more optimized methods for running your lines, there are also more optimized methods for uncovering key insights and interpreting what they mean for your operations, at scale.
One of the most effective methods is leveraging a predictive operations model, one that provides your engineers and operators with quick wins. A key component of this model is a technology called digital threads. Digital threads are no-code logical workflows that are used to automate calculations or operationalize actions. Threads are automatically running in the background and evaluating all anomalous conditions.
The actions represented by a digital thread could trigger a notification or an action when an event occurs, such as sending an email directly to the service team or calculating actions back to the data source to create an automated setpoint change.
Deployment actions, represented by digital threads, are scalable across millions of assets and can be easily managed by domain experts on a single platform. Adding intelligence to operations in this way is very quick and effective.
In terms of proving value quickly, the speed at which digital threads allow your engineers to interpret real-time data, and act upon what they are learning, ensures that if there are measurable results to be realized, they will be promptly achieved.
