According to a recent announcement, Litmus, an Intelligent Edge company, has entered into a partnership with Oden Technologies, a company helping manufacturers through machine learning and analytics. Together, Litmus and Oden reportedly will now offer a solution for Smart Manufacturing that will include out-of-the-box data acquisition from any machine, advanced analytics and machine learning designed to drive greater production efficiency.
Litmus Edge is a data intelligence platform designed to collect, normalize and analyze high volumes of live data from industrial assets and make it available to OT and IT systems via edge-to-enterprise integration. Oden reportedly provides the big data compute engine and machine learning, real-time and predictive process metrics.
“We can get customers up and running by connecting to any machine and collecting data in minutes, then integrate that data with Oden so customers can see proven predictive and prescriptive applications to deliver value in under 30 days,” said John Younes, co-founder and COO, Litmus. “Litmus provides intelligence at the edge, and Oden provides the cloud-based analytics and machine learning necessary to predict and prevent problems, then prescribe actions that lead to better business decisions.”
Litmus Edge is deployed at the Edge with more than 250 pre-built drivers to connect to any PLC, CNC, sensor, robotic system or SCADA/MES/Historian with no programming, then processes and normalizes the data automatically. Litmus feeds clean data to the Oden Industrial AI Platform, which offers real-time metrics and reporting along with predictive quality, performance optimization and other automated insights. Litmus Edge then runs those machine learning models back at the assets for continuous improvement and closed loop control back to the assets.
“With Litmus + Oden, customers can create a complete source of truth for all production data,” said Willem Sundblad, Cofounder and CEO, Oden Technologies. “We are excited to partner with Litmus to deliver increased operational visibility and automated insights that help customers reduce waste, optimize performance and maximize profitability across the factory floor.”
