Discrete and Continuous Process Applications

  • Process Modeling & Control:  "Sensor fusion" refers to predictive models' ability to integrate multiple, disparate sensor measurements to in order to predict a process output.  Having an accurate model of process response is critical for control and optimization.

  • Leak Detection:  When a process shifts significantly from its normal, modeled response, it may indicate a leak or some other critical failure.

  • Sensor Fault Detection:  Predictive models can be used to assess a sensor's reading in the context of incoming data upstream and downstream of the sensor.  A fluttering meter reading may indicate a process failure or simply that you need to replace the meter.
