To answer this, first we will explain the smart advisor system first.

The smart advisor system is a machine learning system that provides real-time guidance and recommendations to operators and maintenance personnel based on the current condition and performance of a machine.

The successor PROGNOST®-Predictor, on the other hand, is a more advanced type of machine learning system that uses historical data and machine learning algorithms to predict the future condition and remaining useful life of a machine or system.

Here are some advantages of upgrading a Smart Advisor to a PROGNOST®-Predictor:

  1. Improved accuracy: PROGNOST®-Predictor uses more advanced machine learning algorithms and techniques than a smart advisor system, which means it can provide more accurate predictions of machine health and remaining useful life.
  2. Early fault detection: PROGNOST®-Predictor can detect faults and anomalies in a machine or system earlier than a smart advisor system, allowing for more proactive maintenance and repair.
  3. Reduced downtime: By predicting machine failures before they occur, PROGNOST®-Predictor can help minimize unplanned downtime and improve overall equipment uptime.
  4. Cost savings: Proactive maintenance based on prognostic predictions can help prevent catastrophic failures and reduce the need for expensive emergency repairs or replacements.
  5. Improved decision-making: PROGNOST®-Predictor can provide more detailed and actionable insights into machine health and performance than a smart advisor system, enabling better decision-making by operators and maintenance personnel.

Overall, upgrading from a smart advisor system to a PROGNOST®-Predictor can provide significant benefits in terms of accuracy, early fault detection, downtime reduction, cost savings, and improved decision-making.
