In this talk, we show how we leverage the Canopy Platform to build modern, customized software for analyzing plant process systems. We'll demonstrate the ad hoc analysis capabilities and workflow-oriented user interface that simultaneously simplifies open-ended and routine tasks. These capabilities make use of the extensive library of analysis routines that are available to the Canopy Platform and the data management component that enables uniform access to raw files, databases, and remote data stores. We'll walk through a cluster analysis workflow that can make use of a company's existing compute resources to scale to thousands of controllers and years worth of batch or continuous data. We will also describe the larger vision for this software as an automated plant advisor that monitors the status of processes, warns when parameters are out of expected bounds, forecasts failures, and offers solutions to those problems.
