Metatron Discovery Launches Advanced APM, a facility monitoring/analysis solution

Metatron is an open “eco-system” of applications for industrial data analytics. This ecosystem consists of a variety of apps such as Discovery and Machine Vision. Today we introduce our new app ‘APM’, which stands for ‘Asset Performance Management’.

There are common challenges when managing asset performances in the manufacturing industry domain:

  • Productivity and Quality loss due to equipment failure
  • The high replacement cost of critical components
  • Long repair time
  • Inefficient manual ad-hoc maintenance plans
  • Siloed production systems incurring inefficiency

Advanced APM is an equipment status management system designed to overcome does problems effectively. Equipment is an industrial corporate’s main asset. Metatron Discovery engine is optimized for machine log data (time series data) monitoring and analysis. Powered by this engine, APM goes beyond the IT & BI field to the field of analytics modeling.

With the topic of smart factory, the term predictive maintenance has emerged as a keyword in terms of manufacturing and analysis. Traditionally, equipment maintenance job is done periodically or by condition-based. However, this is a waste of money preventing the asset from running for maintenance, even if the asset is healthy. By utilizing the AI analytics models, Advanced APM not only shows the current status but also predicts, analyzes errors in advance and implement optimization.

Advanced APM has verified industry’s use case

Key Features of Advanced APM

Easy & Quick Self-Management

  • High usability: easy and quick management of users (site engineers)
  • Quick deployment: Asset Template helps quick deployment and model adaptation which leads to quick real-time data monitoring and anomaly detection.
  • Dynamic dashboard: Advanced APM offers AI-driven dynamic reports with an intuitive, customizable view.
Advanced APM can deliver meaningful insights quickly

Factory-wide Extensibility

  • Flexible management for adding new facilities/sensors or site expansion
  • Asset hierarchy: Manage assets hierarchically by factories or lines.
  • Asset level: Monitor assets at a glance by various levels such as factory/line/ individual asset or sensor data
  • Role-based monitoring: View and process according to roles
Various users can use self-design view via Advanced APM

Variety of models using AI

  • Setup, manage/internalize analysis models by applying the latest analysis method.
  • Applying a variety of analysis methods enables and provides the following:
    • Real-time Health Status monitoring
    • Fault Detection: visualization, cause analysis and type identification of fault influencing parameter
    • Fault Classification: of types and cause by analyzing vibration spectrum data
    • RUL (Remaining Useful Life) Prediction: by analyzing sensor/past data
  • Model combination of Rule-based and ML/AI based
  • Ad-hoc analytics: additional deep-dive analysis with Metatron Discovery
Advanced APM has AI-driven capabilities

Context-aware & Adaptive System

  • Auto-sensing of operation environment, model update, and performance optimization
