With advances in IT, monitoring and sensor technology, an increasing amount of data on the parameters and performance of engineering systems are collected. Data is collected at different design and operation phases of engineering systems and processes. In some cases a vast amount of data might be available (also known as big data), in other cases the data might be limited and/or even incomplete. It is crucial that data processing and analysis is performed effectively in a systematic manner. Machine learning algorithms provide the tools needed to extract information from and make optimal use of available data. They can identify and employ patterns in the recorded data, even if an underlying process-based model is not available.
We help our clients to integrate machine learning soundly into the probabilistic modelling of model parameters. We also support our clients to develop machine learning-based predictive models of the underlying physical processes. State-of-the-art machine learning techniques enable exploiting the full economic potential that the data offers for effective decision making. To facilitate communication of analysis results we employ enhanced graphical data representations and visualizations.
