ExperTune's new PlantTriage baselines the performance of your plant for future comparison.
Compare your plant against the baseline to see how the changes you make improve the performance.

PlantTriage continually monitors and assesses the performance of each area in the plant giving you complete control of how you baseline or compare performance. For the assessment of each loop in the plant you can set a baseline of performance and a threshold to not exceed.

Using PlantTriage templates, you can easily set-up the baselines for a unit operation, group of loops, or the entire plant. Graphically zoom to a time window when the plant was operating well, or where you want to establish a baseline and press "set baselines".
