Predictive Pattern Recognition (PdP)
Power & Process Products and Services
A critical part of your maintenance management strategy
PdP is a superior, advanced pattern recognition application for
condition monitoring to improve equipment reliability. PdP utilizes
existing data signals available through installed DCS systems,
historians, and other monitoring systems for early detection of
abnormal operating conditions.
The System State Analyzer algorithm embodied in PdP produces
very accurate estimates of the expected values of sensors utilizing
models that have “learned” the normal operation of the equipment
based on historical performance.
The estimated values are compared to the real time values to evaluate
overall system operation before extreme problems take hold of your operation.
There are a number of compelling reasons to consider PdP for protecting your
plant or fleet. The value of predictive analytics lies in your ability to
gain greater control over your operation by receiving clear, advance warning
of equipment or process degradation.
PdP works to your advantage by:
Addressing equipment and instrument problems early –
to reduce control room alarms and enhance plant productivity
Shifting unplanned outages into planned maintenance work to help
you better manage operating expenses and maximize reliability
during peak production periods
Reducing the risk of catastrophic failure,
protecting plant personnel and equipment
Reducing maintenance costs by incorporating
real time equipment health information into
condition-based maintenance programs
Saving millions of dollars by routine daily
usage with payback within months as documented in client case histories
Curtiss-Wright’s PdP, in conjunction with the other FAMOS condition monitoring tools, provides efficient, superior equipment protection.
The Curtiss-Wright approach optimizes your performance
Every application in the FAMOS suite is readily deployed
and designed to ensure ease of use and utility. Product
features that help deliver a maximum return on your investment include:
Straightforward alarms that identify system and equipment anomalies
Clear equipment and process displays that outline remedies and simplify corrective action planning
Exceptional reporting and review functionality via web, e-mail, and/or console
User-friendly “FAMOS Architect” graphical tool for ease in building, training and testing models
Because PdP is created by the same developers as other FAMOS suite products
it creates an integrated and robust solution for your plant or entire fleet –
when installed as part of the suite.
