Integrated process monitoring, troubleshooting, and process optimization                 

Proficy CSense software monitors both assets and industrial processes to pinpoint causes of process variation and to optimize performance. Leveraging a suite of components, it helps you determine and understand the causes of process deviation in industrial environments—delivering complete and integrated process performance enhancement for a given asset or collection of key performance indicators (KPIs).

Proficy CSense consists of three software editions and one packaged solution, each with a unique focus:

  • Troubleshooter Edition - for offline, ad-hoc, or on-demand process modeling and troubleshooting. It includes the Continuous Troubleshooter and Discrete & Batch Troubleshooters, along with external data connectors, Virtual Campus, and the Action Object Toolkit.
  • Run-time Edition - for the online deployment and monitoring environment. It includes Action Object Services, Virtual Campus, Action Object Toolkit, and the Proficy CSense Report Server (1 User CAL).
  • Developer Edition - for the expert user trained in analytics and/or with software development experience. It includes both the Troubleshooter Edition and Run-time Edition components, and adds the Architect.
  • Process+, a web-based packaged solution for monitoring the performance of thousands of control loops on historical and real-time process data.
