2018 was an important year for HanAra in the United States. On July 10, HanAra and its parent company BNF Technology received its first US patent. The predictive maintenance patent relates to our predictive analytics software solution HanPHI.

Predictive Maintenance Patent

The value of predictive maintenance is to know when a piece of equipment has an issue prior to failure. There are different approaches to predictive maintenance from vibration monitoring to oil analysis. But with HanPHI, you can use existing equipment sensors to monitor the entire plant or fleet. With machine learning technology, the solution pinpoints where the issue is occurring at the sensor level for improved root-cause analysis. This reduces time spent determining where the issue is. And gives you more time to plan and prioritize. This is how HanPHI helps organizations optimize operations, allowing users to focus on what’s important.

How It Works

The predictive maintenance patent relates to how the health index rates the importance of components within the system. When a current component operating behavior deviates from its normal operating range, the abnormal condition of the current component influences the overall health index based on its importance. This level of notification allows for convenient and easy monitoring of the plant condition based on only the health index of the uppermost level.

Just by viewing the home screen on HanPHI, users know instantly the overall plant health. This gives all members of an organization insight into how the plant is currently running. In addition, with a hierarchical representation of the plant, there is no longer a question as to what is bringing down the plant’s health score. This allows for actionable intelligence in an instant, helping organizations achieve operational excellence.
