TrendMiner 2019.R1 Provides Greater Insight into Advanced Analytics

The latest release from TrendMiner includes a brand new visual representation of time-series data, making it easier for users to analyze, monitor and predict process and asset performance in their operational context and increase overall profitability.

Houston, TX and Hasselt, Belgium – February 28, 2019 TrendMiner NV, a Software AG company, has announced their latest software update: TrendMiner 2019.R1. The release includes a completely new visual representation of time-series data, as well as a number of usability enhancements further improving the views of available data.

New visual representation of time-series data

TrendMiner enables process and asset experts to analyze, monitor and predict operational performance through trend analysis of time-series data. The new ‘Stacked Trend View’ enables the display of trend data within separate lanes, vertically stacked and aligned. The stacked trend view is a great addition to TrendMiner’s well known trend view, which gives a clearer view on all trend data.

Analyze

Stacked Trends

The user friendly interface allows the user to move the trend lines from one lane to another by simply dragging and dropping tags to combine similar measurements, eg. to compare performance of similar production lines or various reactors on a production site.

Gain More Insight

Stacked Trends

TrendMiner’s Recommender Engine, a self-service approach to finding potential root causes for anomalies, can be used to suggest root causes for performance anomalies. The suggested root causes can be added as tags to the appropriate stacked trend lane, including necessary time shifts. Users can now easily visually assess the impact of the early indicators for performance issues.

Predict

Stacked Trends

The stacked trend view can also be used to represent golden fingerprints, providing a very practical option to compare the live performance of multiple assets or highlight the relationship of normally disparate elements of a production process. In predictive mode, the most likely evolution of process behavior can now be visually represented in separate lanes, identifying the need of intervention when and where required, ensuring optimum yield and product quality.

Enhancements driven by our users

TrendMiner is designed by engineers for engineers and we highly value user feedback. On each release we make improvements in response to user ideas and suggestions. The key enhancements influenced by our users, released in TrendMiner 2019.R1 include:

  • Date-pickers for double slider: For more accurate selection of the start and end date of time periods of interest, data pickers have been added.
  • Custom time spans for focus charts: Besides predefined time spans, we now facilitate custom time settings, broadening the scope, for example, of batch analytics.
  • Keyword filter: The capabilities of the recently released new ContextHub have been extended with keyword filters.

The new stacked trend view, as well as the various usability enhancements, will serve to further reduce the time and effort it takes to solve equipment and process performance related issues. It is TrendMiner’s goal to help enable better decisions, and to improve the overall performance of our customers production facilities.
