ABB’s System 800xA Performance Service uses data collected during scheduled and on-demand analyses for comparison against best practices and standards to detect performance irregularities. This comparison quickly pinpoints issues, helping to improve system reliability, availability and performance. With ABB System 800xA Performance Service, proactive data analysis delivers advantages to reduce the time and effort needed to identify software, hardware, system and network performance irregularities. Finding the sources of irregularity and inefficiency is a challenge that can be met through visualization and proactive analysis of system key performance indicators.
Predictive notifications from the System 800xA Performance Service have helped to reduce maintenance costs, travel expenses and unscheduled downtime for the mill. Data is classified based on the established Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to provide a list of items that are prioritized based on severity, criticality and/or financial impact. This analysis allows tracking and the development of accurate trend performance histories so that more decisions can be made with increased knowledge and make systems perform better with higher availability.
Using the System 800xA Performance Service, managers obtained an automated control system checkup that provided a benchmark for system performance and configuration. The plant managers use the comprehensive diagnostic analysis tools to assess their control system’s operation, implement improvements, identify, classify, and help prioritize opportunities for improved performance.
