ABB enhances APM solution with prognostic capabilities

Prognostic capabilities

ABB’s industry-leading Ellipse® Asset Performance Management (APM) solution (part of the company’s Digital Enterprise portfolio) has been enriched with strengthened prognostic capabilities. The new functionality enables customers to more accurately forecast when their critical assets are likely to fail and model alternative planning pathways. The new prognostic capabilities are a result of ABB’s acquisition of the software company, Cassantec.

The advanced software analytics have been integrated into the ABB Ability™ Digital Enterprise portfolio and deliver value to ABB’s industrial customers spanning the power, transportation, telecommunications, natural-resources sectors, and other asset-intensive industries.

The enhanced prognostic functionality has been gained through the integration of recently acquired software firm Cassantec’s analytics within the Digital Enterprise portfolio. New features include condition-based prognostic horizons and risk profiles alongside simulation capabilities that extend an operator’s monitoring and diagnostic capabilities into the future - from fleet level all the way to individual assets.
