Siemens has announced its AI Anomaly Assistant Industrial App, which uses artificial intelligence (AI) to detect anomalies in the process industry and assess their business relevance. This gives companies new opportunities for the economical optimisation of their processes. The app analyses process events that affect parameters such as productivity, availability, and quality, and alerts the plant operator to any anomalies. These events and anomalies are no longer simply identified, but also scrutinised for their business relevance—an assessment which was previously only possible based on previous experience.
The AI Anomaly Assistant app is installed either as a cloud application or within the user’s own infrastructure, for example on a Simatic Box PC or a virtual machine. The cloud-based solution is particularly advantageous during the training and evaluation phase, since it supports efficient collaboration between data analysts and plant operators. In addition, it also allows the results of anomaly detection to be combined with other services, such as predictive asset management, as part of the Asset Performance Suite (APS).
