Self-service analysis for malfunction detection in machines and systems

With the Signal Search App, sensor data sets (e.g. of machines and production plants) can be searched for characteristic patterns. The underlying signal analysis methods using linear regression allow multivariate, nonlinear patterns to be detected in the data (e.g. trends, non-stationarities), compared visually with the search pattern in the time domain and displayed graphically.

In addition, existing error and alarm messages can also be integrated into the search. In this way, possible correlations between sensor progressions and the occurrence of faults in the past can be investigated and thus support data-driven cause research. The tool enables the technical side to carry out a self-controlled explorative analysis of the data and can help to make more objective decisions regarding the configuration and operation of the machine or system.

  • Self-guided interactive analyses without programming knowledge.
  • Comparison of different signal characteristics parallel over time.
  • Detecting relationships between signal waveforms and interference.
  • Easy implementation and interactive help function enables a fast start.
  • Web application- independent of operating system, display device and location.
  • Detection of influencing factors for disturbances by comparison and evaluation of several patterns.

The TIQ signal search app in your company

The modular structure of the TIQ signal search app and the methodological concept allows an easy adaptation to your specific analytical needs and your concrete data situation. Our three-step approach has proven itself during the introduction of the product.

Phase I: In an initial workshop we will determine your use case and the concrete requirements.

Phase II: We adapt the TIQ signal search app according to your requirements and train you in its use, so that you can use the system safely from the very beginning

Phase III: We support the go-live of the application in your company with accompanying consulting in the technical evaluation of the results.
