AVEVA APC 2020 SP1: Faster time to value thanks to new inferential sensor calculations

Posted: November 11, 2021

During a time of reduced capital, climbing costs, and increased pressure, AVEVA™ APC’s predictive, advanced process control enables industrial operations to use real-time and historical data to continuously improve production yield, quality, and throughput—and the bottom line. Using direct connections to a variety of automation systems, AVEVA APC analyzes, identifies, and models significant cause-and-effect relationships and gives engineers valuable insights to take action. Now, thanks to new inferential sensor calculations in AVEVA APC 2020 SP1, industrial operations teams can expedite project execution and realize better, faster results.

AVEVA APC 2020 SP1 includes the new Inferentials Viewer. Inferentials Viewer is a web-based module of AVEVA APC which allows operators to interact with inferential sensor calculations using a web browser. Operators can manually enter lab results or updates done automatically using data from LIMS. Inferentials Viewer enables industrial operations to build this type of interface in the DCS, eliminating dependency on the DCS vendor and shortening project execution.
