IMA Sentinel

The data-driven services platform enriched by Artificial Intelligence, for continuous and autonomous monitoring of the system’s performance wherever it is needed.

Controlling production efficiency is today the main industry priority. Sentinel is the access point to all data-driven services, capable of guiding production choices by ensuring autonomous and continuous system monitoring. The platform, structured in different sections and with multiple vertical viewing possibilities, provides all information and data for continuous improvement of efficiency and processes.

  • PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT SECTION, dedicated to production and process monitoring through a wide choice of parameters and KPIs to monitor;
  • FAST AND SLOW DATA ANALYTICS, to obtain a full view of slow and fast data using machine learning algorithms;
  • DESCRIPTIVE & DIAGNOSITC ANALYTICS, for a continuous control of the way processes progress by monitoring system variables and indicators, allowing the identification of anomalous behaviour.

Sentinel is an open platform that:

  • Can dialogue with all ERP and MES systems
  • Can be connected to all kind of machines
  • Can receive and analyze data from all PLCs

Autonomous monitoring of the conditions of machines and lines
