Sightline EDM Predictive Analytics in Manufacturing
Collect & Unify Real-Time Systems Data Within One Dashboard
EDM collates hundreds of metrics across the OT & IT of production facilities from sensors, monitors, equipment, labor, servers, applications, and network devices every second — down to the process or unit-level.
Visualize Performance Across Your Operations & Facilities Worldwide
The system unifies your whole ecosystem, quickly aggregating, visualizing, and analyzing time-series data to help teams understand the past, present and future of production infrastructure and provides a central look across operations within one dashboard.
View Top-Level Data With Availability of Drill-Down Details
Proactively monitor the performance of the entire operations & production ecosystem, collecting real-time data on hundreds of metrics across thousands of inputs, continually monitoring and analyzing the full context of all past data.
Sightline EDM Anomaly Detection
Establish Historical Baselines & Configure Custom Alerts
Easily establish threshold alerts and leverage artificial intelligence, machine learning, and big data analytics to measure and trace historical activity & identify potential data outliers within the context of your custom parameters & alerts.
Detect Behavioral Anomalies & Visualize Operations Spikes
The system utilizes early warning detection algorithms to identify potential bottleneck or technical issues before they become production disruptions with a visual “spike finder” to show unexpected data spikes across systems & facilities.
Weigh Operations Anomalies & Their Potential Consequences
Examine flagged anomalies, powered by our AI technology, against historical data, across facilities, and within production capacity to weigh severity and cause for concern using statistical confidence levels to evaluate for a potential critical production problem.
Sightline EDM Root Cause Analysis
Diagnose the Source of a Problem Within Minutes Across Facilities
By automating the root cause analysis process and using our advanced correlation engine, Sightline analyzes events across all facilities, operations, equipment, servers, applications, and databases with an advanced analytics engine to quickly identify root causes, related symptoms, and take corrective action to prevent operational impact.
Document & Share Past Solutions' Notes to Reduce Downtime
Take faster corrective action to limit impact and minimize the cost of recurring problems with full documentation of service issues, including research notes & recommended solutions to past triggers or historical performance issues & fixes that can be shared across different teams and facilities without a siloed knowledge base.
Intelligently Predict & Prevent Future Production Issues
Past issues and their resolutions are logged within the system, helping it learn & detect similar data trends to predict and alert for operations and performance issues before they happen. In the event of a recurring issue, even in a different facility, EDM provides known fixes to prevent recurring problems from requiring significant time & money to resolve.
Sightline EDM Capacity Planning
Design & Automate Custom Forecasting Reports & Alerts
Quickly customize and deploy production forecasting reports or alerts that include data on resource metrics from sensors & other systems on labor availability, IT capabilities, equipment capacity, repairs, supplies, logistics, and storage along with capacity threshold limits across systems & facilities, highlighting which components are in danger of bottlenecking operations and the projected out-of-capacity date.
Analyze Capacity and Demand Trends to Benchmark Production
By continuously collecting real-time data and visualizing historical trends, EDM™ helps establish a baseline on production & operations across facilities, determine the amount of resources or capacity currently available, and generate resource requirement data for operations infrastructure planning to maintain or expand production levels at all times, and withstand potential spikes in demand, usage, or capacity.
Forecast Future System Requirements & Potential Issues
Sightline’s capacity planning reports help industrial, manufacturing, and utility companies accurately predict whether existing operations facilities and resources can satisfy future growth based on past and present resource utilization and predict infrastructure requirements and resource utilization weeks, months, and years in advance to accurately predict across facilities when and where resource capacity will run out.
SIAS Security, Powered by Sightline & Unisys
Security Features, Native to the EDM Ecosystem:
Cloaking of All Endpoints & Sensitive Data
All data components are encrypted in transport to hide and protect data in transit so that it’s unable to be exploited throughout systems and facilities.
Dynamic Isolation of Potential Threats
Potential threats and anomalies are contained through dynamic isolation, making a potential threat unable to spread until it has been fully assessed.
Cryptographic Zoning & Data Encryption
Micro-segmentation – also known as secure enclave – protects a network by breaking it into smaller chunks, down to the packet level, creating multiple unique closed user groups.
