Introduction

Falkonry software is an automatic pattern recognition technology. Falkonry observes time series data, detects patterns that exist within the data, learns the classification of these patterns based on user-defined labels, and continuously classifies these patterns as they occur in near real-time. Falkonry's technology applies sophisticated signal processing with in an artificial intelligence platform that translates operational data into operating conditions without the need for programming or custom data science projects. Falkonry makes condition recognition ubiquitous and easily accessible by system operators and management. Results are sent back into the resident operations management solution, where workflows and operational automation are triggered.

Business Impact

Artificial Intelligence technology can spot patterns of inefficiency, unreliability, and poor quality in the data from processes, equipment, devices, and sensors. When AI is applied in real-time, these patterns create operational intelligence that is harnessed to substantially improve operating efficiencies. Manufacturers using Falkonry with an OSIsoft PI System can quickly capitalize on their data by monitoring for patterns occurring across multiple signals simultaneously. Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) name these patterns which are then used to keep production quality in tighter bands, avoid downtime by early detection of shifts in real-time asset operating conditions, and for extracting greater value from the data and systems already in place.

Solution Approach

Ever-increasing volumes of IoT and machine data are being generated. Most enterprises spend large sums to store and protect those data, yet struggle to make use of it. Falkonry's automatic signal processing and pattern recognition technology extracts real-time, active, continuous, multivariate operating intelligence from PI Data. By applying Falkonry technology to data from a PI System, Falkonry enables SMEs to uncover patterns within their operations that foretell conditions such as downtime, asset/resource under-utilization, and quality or yield declines. The Falkonry Agent for PI System connects high fidelity operational data from the PI System to Falkonry's artificial intelligence software. Operators then receive the earliest possible indication of equipment and process condition allowing for timely, appropriate action. Falkonry enables OSIsoft customers to maximize the value of their data by applying advanced artificial intelligence analytics to their control and automation system and smart device data, detecting and monitoring asset and operating conditions continuously across time-series data points, and leveraging process and asset condition monitoring to increase efficiency, reduce cost, and improve quality.
