Prior to SHIELD, the industry provided a myriad of solutions that focused on alerting to potential issues, but none was able to diagnose or prioritize them. SmartSignal is revolutionizing the industry with the introduction of SHIELD by filling a gap previously considered impossible to fill. SmartSignal developed its breakthrough solution upon the request of its customers, and with their help.

SmartSignal SHIELD uses shared blind data from SmartSignal customers-the world’s largest base of predictive-diagnostic intelligence. After analyzing the data-from hundreds of millions of machine hours and tens of thousands of failures-SmartSignal was able to identify the fault patterns, in context of operating behavior, that are important to the Power and Oil & Gas industries, and incorporate them into the new SHIELD.

With SHIELD, SmartSignal customers now can focus their efforts on action, not analysis-reducing maintenance costs and increasing reliability, availability, efficiency, and compliance.

Jim Gagnard, SmartSignal CEO, said: SHIELD is unique. We have delivered Predictive Diagnostics while our competitors just talk about it. Only SmartSignal has the historical data to make this possible. We’re glad to take this major step forward and provide the intelligence our customers need so they can avoid surprises that damage their performance.
