Smart devices in the field today are full of diagnostic information that allows for predictive maintenance routines that can provide significant savings.
In most cases, this information is not being utilized and the process measurement is the only signal being analyzed.
Access into the intelligence that is embedded in devices in the field allows operations insight into the integrity of their process measurement. Predictive diagnostics gives you the ability to adjust your process or repair an instrument before it causes a process upset or plant shutdown. Having this insight improves reliability, reduces maintenance costs, and most of all, allows you to optimize throughput of your facility.
