The IPRC, located in Lisle, Illinois, is staffed with experienced reliability engineers who monitor thousands of assets around the world, seven days per week. These assets are in industries such as Oil & Gas, Power Generation, Mining and Aviation. Each month the center ‘catches’ more than 200 predictive equipment failures; issues agreed to by the customer as early signs of failure modes and that the customer decides to fix as a result of the advisory. In 2013, the IPRC caught almost 2,200 early failures; a 99.7% accuracy rate for catchable events as defined by its customer base.

Part of the IPRC solution is GE’s industry-leading ProficyTM SmartSignal, software that detects variances for each particular piece of equipment to provide early warning of impending problems, with diagnoses of major equipment and process failures, and prioritizations based on severity. The software also helps organize maintenance projects with confidence and reduces the cost of maintenance because it can be scheduled on off-times.

“Through the IPRC we are able to harness the power of the Industrial Internet to provide real results for customers,” said Brian Courtney, General Manager for GE Intelligent Platforms’ Industrial Data Intelligence solutions. “These outcomes, found through predictive analytics, are real today and customers feel the impact every day.”

Mike Hartsig, Plant Manager for Griffith Energy thinks the GE solution helps him make his plant as reliable and efficient as possible, all the time. “What keeps me up at night are the things I don’t know about. Proficy gives us a heads up as to potential problems. We use it to let us know about anomalies before they become alarms and before they become a problem.”

This month, GE has also introduced a new tool, the Monitoring & Analysis Snapshot, which visually shows assets monitored and the value of data analytics coming from the IPRC. It presents a true picture of the Industrial Internet in the real world as it relates to Advanced Predictive Analytics.
