Data never sleeps, neither does our software
Events that occur once will likely occur again. TrendMiner helps to prevent repeated production issues by guarding your live data like a watchdog. You can easily create your golden fingerprints based on historical data.
The software monitors your processes 24/7 and sends notifications when patterns of interest are detected. Messages can be customized to prescribe the best response given the circumstances, allowing to take appropriate action before things go wrong.
With the ability to automatically annotate and label events, lessons from the past can be captured and shared. Abnormal situations can be avoided and good behaviour monitored, all based on expert knowledge and machine learning.

The search and diagnostic analytics capabilities of TrendMiner can be used to find behaviors of interest. These behaviors can than be fingerprinted and used for monitoring purposes:
- Monitor that the process is performing in accordance with a specific fingerprint. For instance, detect whether a batch process starts deviating from the golden batch envelope.
- Detect when process or asset behavior matches a fingerprint of anomalous behavior.
Fingerprints can be created for batch processes, grades and continuous processes.
Automate knowledge capturing
With TrendMiner, events can be captured and labelled automatically, based on monitoring alerts for saved search patterns, fingerprints or rules. This way, your knowledge base is continuously being enriched, and results from previous analysis can be leveraged for reporting and future diagnostics purposes. Furthermore, novice users can learn from others’ past process experience.
Selected alerts can also be placed on a dashboard for panel operators in the control room, so they can intervene early and avoid abnormal situations.
Manage by exception
Often a range of displays with key variables are periodically inspected by the engineering staff to verify the health of key process units or equipment. For instance, a periodic inspection may reveal the degree of heat exchanger fouling and trigger a maintenance action. Due to the number of potential issues, it can be cumbersome to manually inspect trends this way. As a result, problem evolutions are not always detected in a timely manner.
With TrendMiner monitor, data inspection tasks can be automated and the plant can be managed by exception, starting from an inbox with detections of interest.
“Production losses are typically shown by flare increase, which is an indication of leaking valves. Through a TrendMiner monitor, preventive maintenance helps us avoid multi-ton product losses.”

Learn more about TrendMiner software
When there’s a process problem, you need fast answers. That’s exactly what TrendMiner is designed to deliver. With a high speed search engine, advanced filter options and patented pattern recognition technology, you get data-based insights that are actionable. Our self-service analytics speed up your root cause analysis and help you identify new areas for optimization.
Why react when you can predict the future? Our interactive and model-free predictive mode is based on patent-pending technology and works in a fundamentally different way than model-based predictive technologies. Based on all available historical data, TrendMiner can predict evolutions of batch runs, transitions or equipment startups in minutes.
Make better decisions, faster with contextualization of time-series data. Context can be captured automatically via monitors, manually added or disclosed from other business applications. With TrendMiner you can illuminate your time-series data with context, to get an clear view on operational behaviour and improve operational excellence faster.
