Operational Intelligence Solution

Use Case

Improve efficiency and quality and minimize unplanned downtime

As manufacturers are faced with more global competition and thinning margins, they cannot afford unplanned downtime in their operations. Continuous availability, improved efficiency and quality of operations are key to achieve profitability. The advent of Industry 4.0, adoption of IoT, cloud, and robotics are trends can have a true positive impact to the bottom line.

Often manufacturers have limited situational awareness due to isolated machines and inconsistent visibility into real-time data. The lack of connected machinery and lines, combined with manual data collection and analysis, results in missed insights and opportunities for process improvement.

Key performance indicators (KPIs) are often computed manually, and senior management does not have access to realtime information, causing a delay in deteriorating or non-performing KPIs.

We have a solution

Achieve better overall equipment effectiveness and higher productivity.

This solution use case is provided on MindSphere® by Persistent Systems Limited, a MindSphere partner and member of the Siemens partner network. The Operational Intelligence solution on MindSphere offers the ability to define KPIs, visually model resources and processes and the relationship between them. A comprehensive, easy-to-use dashboard, along with rules and diagnostics engines, generate actionable insights from real-time and historical data.

In addition, this solution allows the creation of artificial intelligence and machine learning models for anomaly dection and failure prediction. Machines can also be integrated with heterogenous interfaces to a centralized system and IoT gateway.


  • Real-time visibility of key KPIs with drill down to machine level
  • Historic data trends for each parameter
  • Smart diagnostics to recommend probable causes of machine downtime
  • Real-time alerts with email / SMS notifications 


  • Reduction in machine downtime and improved profit margins.
  • Lower maintenance costs with predictive machine health and anomaly detection.
  • Greater efficiency with valuable insights for quicker and better decisionmaking 
  • Continuous availability and improved quality of operations.
