What is FDDWorX™

FDDWorX™ is a predictive equipment diagnostic solution that uses an advanced Fault Detection and Diagnostics (FDD) Engine to analyse all available information to detect and predict faults in equipment. It incorporates algorithms that weigh the probability of faults and advises management, operators and maintenance personnel of actions to prevent equipment failures or excessive use of energy.

When equipment failures occur, advanced software technology analyses current and historical information along with symptom/cause relationships that the system has been taught. It then executes probability algorithms and provides the user guidance with a list of probable causes sorted by probability. This immediate guidance reduces mean time to diagnose and repair, reduces equipment downtime, and lowers overall maintenance costs.

The Web-based Workbench offers FDDWorX users an easy setup and deployment process, integrating with the most popular BAS, SCADA, PLC, DAQ and other systems used to monitor equipment conditions. An extensive library of standard HVAC and process equipment diagnostic models speed setup and configuration, while a rules-based editor lets operators easily customise and add new equipment diagnostic models.

Diagnostic Models Drive Automatic Fault Diagnostics

Diagnostic Models are used to determine the most likely causes for a fault, under given conditions. They consist of symptoms and causes, which are laid out in a tabular matrix format so that users may adjust how they relate to one another. The numbers within the matrix affect the weighting that FDDWorX assigns to the various causes, and can correspond to probabilities from equipment manufacturers' user specifications or a study of existing maintenance history. Some users may elect to fine-tune probabilities based on specific knowledge captured from maintenance technicians. A symptom is any state of condition related to specific equipment that the user/manager would consider cause for concern or "alarm". A cause is a reason for a resulting symptom that would create concern or "alarm". Causes and symptoms vary greatly by equipment type, which is why Diagnostic Models are typically defined on a per equipment type basis. A number of Diagnostic Models are included with FDDWorX, and users are free to create their own models as desired.
