Machine Learning is an essential tool for any reliability engineer looking to work smarter, not harder. Perhaps you even did a little googling on all the machine learning software on the market and got flooded by all the overwhelming choices. Seems tricky. Seems sticky. Which one is the right product for a beginner like you?
That’s where we come in. SORBA.ai is more effective, intuitive, and competitive than anything else on the market, and here’s only three of many reasons as to why:
1. A Good Algorithm Saves YOU, The Engineer, Time and Energy
An effective machine learning algorithm like ours can take you from zero to a solution in a very short period of time. This isn’t because the software can solve your issues for you, but rather point out the anomalies that might otherwise take you hours, days, or even weeks for you to uncover on your own.
The old procedure used to be that whenever you came across an issue, you'd dig up months of old data to pick through as part of your Root Cause Analysis (RCA). Yikes, that’s hours of tedious work right there! And then oftentimes you'll find that the problem started months back, when it has already cost your plant thousands or even millions of dollars in lost productivity. That’s more time you need to spend explaining to the boss how you allowed it to get this bad, and more time spent arranging complex and expensive repairs for a problem that could’ve been a quick and easy fix had you caught on months beforehand.
SORBA.ai’s machine learning software can warn you as soon as the problem manifests within the data, giving you plenty of lead time to solve the issue and prevent lost profit. No need to twiddle your thumbs waiting for a data scientist to complete their sleuthing. The RCA starts and ends today.
2. Our Predictive Maintenance Will Save the Plant Money and Downtime
Think about how frustrating it is when, seemingly out of nowhere, a key piece of equipment breaks. Operations come to a screeching halt, the plant shuts down, and potential profits are leaking out like there’s a hole in dear Henry’s bucket. If only you knew ahead of time when that piece of equipment was about to bite the dust. With SORBA’s predictive maintenance software, you can! It uses data analysis tools to detect possible operation anomalies and defective equipment so that you know exactly what to investigate and slap on the agenda for the next scheduled repair day.
Now let me be clear, predictive maintenance is not something you’ll want to skip out on. Let’s say you don’t use it? You could face the same or worse consequences as a plant in Jacksonville, whose huge wastewater boiler had a "sudden" and catastrophic failure that cost the company over $200,000. It was a failure that they thought began and ended in January as a critical event, but when my colleague and I analyzed the data, we found that the issue actually began in November the previous year. Had this Jacksonville plant been using SORBA’s predictive maintenance software to flag anomalies in the data, they could've avoided that six-figure breakdown.
3. SORBA.ai ’s Software Will Keep You Ahead of Your Competitors
Machine learning is a growing trend, and it has been for the past year. That means your competitors have had one year ahead of you to fine-tune their machine learning algorithms to pick up anomalies and gain that extra lead time. Five years ago, there wasn't a huge trend on data centric approaches. Now? It's all the range.
But what sets SORBA.ai apart? It’s current and more intuitive than anything else on the market. If you or your boss feel overwhelmed by the concept of AI and machine learning, SORBA.ai bridges that knowledge gap by being as easy to set up and use as a new smartphone. All you need is a rudimentary knowledge of coding, and you’re all set. With software as simple and effective as ours, you and your team won’t just catch up to your competitors, but sprint ahead of them in no time.
