1. Does MP INtelligence work for any industry?
Yes. MP INtelligence is used today across various industries, including energy (CHP, nuclear, waste, hydro), pharmaceuticals, metal, chemical, aviation, and pulp & paper. The solution is best suited for industrial environments where continuous process data is readily available.
2. Do I need to invest in new sensors to collect the data MP INtelligence needs?
MP INtelligence uses existing process data, which is typically accurate and can yield a lot of value about your operations. The solution can also manage other relevant data, such as from new sensors and external sources. As part of our overall service, we help our customers to identify any need for additional sensors and other data so that the performance of the service can be further improved.
3. Is the solution installed on my premises or offered as a cloud solution?
We offer MP INtelligence as a cloud solution, as this is the best way to bring our customers the heavy computational power required for advanced machine-learning analytics.
4. How is data transferred from my environment to MP INtelligence?
Data is typically collected at the DCS level or from a centralized data storage. We help our customers to identify the best method. Data is typically transferred in CSV file format or by using protocols such as MQTT, OPC-UA, Rest APIs, etc.
5. How is security handled?
MP INtelligence has been designed as a hardened, secure system for industrial clients – with security at all levels. This includes secure data transfer between the customer environment and the cloud, strong security implemented in our cloud environment, and two-factor authentication for the web-based interface.
MP INtelligence has been audited by a leading energy company in the Nordic region and we score 10/10 in OWASP Top 10.
6. How long does it take to deploy MP INtelligence?
Deployment typically takes just a few calendar weeks. This is followed by a validation period of one to three months, during which the models learn from the real-time data and from any human feedback. After the validation period, the service runs as a normal part of daily operations.
7. Do I need any resources, or is everything fully automated?
MP INtelligence provides warnings that must be checked and interpreted by human users. To ensure continuous development of the service, users also rank warnings as being true or false.
With its advanced analytics capability, MP INtelligence produces only a limited number of warnings and thus typically requires just 15-30 minutes daily from each user.
8. How do I access the service?
MP INtelligence has an intuitive web-based interface that can be accessed from anywhere with a laptop, tablet or smartphone.
