Combining System Modeling & Data to Optimize Heavy Equipment Performance

Information silos present a major challenge to Heavy Equipment OEMs. Poor integration of simulation models across the product life cycle, limited reuse of models between programs, and a variation of modeling maturity across various engineering disciplines result in lack of traceability and ultimately hampers development efficiency and product performance. Using system modeling and asset-centric data analytics solutions help develop and orchestrate coherent models to increase decision-making confidence and speed.

Analyze Performance and Operations of Truck Fleets in Real Time

Altair’s event processing and data visualization tools enable fleet operators to analyze critical data streaming in from sensors and other sources. This real-time visibility into vehicle and driver performance helps reduce operating costs, improve driver safety, and increase fleet productivity. Analysts can display maps showing the current position of all assets, examine route deviations, program alerts on any set of parameters, and compare drivers’ behavior. Analysts can design and modify analytical dashboards as needed without writing a single line of code.

Use Cases

Panopticon Demo: Monitor and Analyze Real-Time Data from Oil and Gas Drilling Operations

Oil and gas wells are equipped with a variety of sensors measuring temperature, torque, friction, pressure, location, volume of production, and rate of penetration. This telemetry data streams into a central control room over low latency message buses, where engineers and analysts use Altair® Panopticon™ to monitor and analyze that data in real time. A single Panopticon workbook can process and visualize data from any number of wells and display geospatial information and all critical parameters — down to the nanosecond if needed. The software can make on-the-fly comparisons between current readings and historical time series data and alert users to potential maintenance issues before they can bring drilling to a halt.

Monarch Spotlight Series - Data Automation for Mortgage Servicing

Mortgage Servicers using Black Knight face significant challenges around quickly and cost-effectively accessing lending and prepayment risk. Mortgage Servicers rely on the client and transactional data to evaluate pre-payment risk and execute on investor reporting, loss analysis, and servicing transfers. On platforms like Black Knight MSP, that data is either trapped in static reports or accessible through costly add-ons like BDE. The Altair Mortgage Suite serves as a complement to the mortgage servicing platform by transforming reports into tabular data, applying machine learning, and presenting the data in a visual, easy-to-interpret fashion. Come join our in-house expert with two decades of experience in mortgage servicing Joe Lovati to learn how the Altair Mortgage Suite can bring efficiency to your processes.


Guide to Process Manufacturing

Any industry that produces bulk quantities of goods such as pharmaceuticals, food, chemicals, or cosmetics, is seeking to produce these products consistently while reducing cost factors like waste and down time. Due to the nature of process manufacturing, multiple ingredients are combined to be mixed, coated, or sorted, so understanding the behavior of these processes is of paramount importance for manufacturers. Through the use of simulation modeling and Smart Manufacturing principals, manufacturers are now able to optimize these processes, leading to greater productivity and profitability.


Use Machine Learning To Predict Remaining Useful Life

Machine learning (ML) and stream processing technology are powerful solutions for remaining useful life (RUL) analysis. Manufacturers can use the large amounts of data produced by sensors combined with human inspections of finished pieces to train ML algorithms. The ML tools can then proactively alert operators when a tool is approaching its end of life, allowing them to schedule the replacement for a convenient time. Stream processing algorithms can also process all the sensor data being generated by any number of production machines, make on-the-fly comparisons with historical data, and increase the accuracy of ML algorithms. This solutions flyer explains how smart selection and application of ML tools combined with the availability of clean, governed datasets help manufacturers optimize their maintenance and wear part replacement schedules.


Detect Anomalies in Manufacturing Equipment and Systems

Identifying unusual behaviors or patterns in machine components using sensor data can prevent small glitches from creating major operational problems.
