NWA Focus EMI Platform Provides Gateway to Industry 4.0

PORTLAND, Ore., Aug. 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Northwest Analytics has been recognized by Frost & Sullivan with the  2018 Global Enabling Technology Leadership Award for NWA Focus EMI® the company’s foundational manufacturing analytics Industry 4.0 analytics platform.  The award honors Northwest Analytics for its commitment to industry-best analytics solutions, services, techniques and packages. 

NWA Focus EMI provides a foundational analytics platform that connects to all existing, disparate manufacturing process data sources and seamlessly accommodates data generated by new Industry 4.0 technologies without having to replicate any of the data.  Unlike many other solutions that sit on individual data stores and are applicable to only specific data sources, the NWA Focus EMI global analytics platform accesses data directly from process historians, LIMS, MES, quality information systems and ERP while simultaneously accommodating Industry 4.0 technology additions (ML, AR,VR, AI).  By seamlessly integrating any subsequent Industry 4.0 made by a manufacturing organization, NWA Focus EMI accelerates the customer’s return on investment. 

“We’re honored to be recognized by Frost & Sullivan for this prestigious award as it underscores our commitment to accelerating and transforming the manufacturing and process industries to provide a gateway to Industry 4.0,” said Bob Ward, Northwest Analytics Chief Executive Officer. “In fact, we recently announced an enterprise license agreement with The Dow Chemical Company.  Currently, with more than 170 implementations of NWA Focus EMI  at Dow Chemical plants, this agreement will further enable the global roll-out of NWA Focus EMI to support Dow Chemical’s Industry 4.0 digital enterprise vision,” he added.

NWA Focus EMI enables role-based decision support, turning data into action to lower costs, increase yields and improve supply-chain control.

When the processes running in a manufacturing environment have been controlled through NWA Focus EMI’s foundational analytics, other analytics solutions are able to pick up more nuanced, faint signals out of the data in a more efficient manner.

The foundational analytics approaches delivered by the NWA Focus EMI platform are easily applied across the process environment, even by users who do not have specialized analytics knowledge. The easy-to-use, intuitive design of NWA Focus EMI appeals to users across all levels of the organization – from operators and process engineers to directors – and requires minimal input from IT resources during installation and maintenance.

"Yet another differentiating feature of the NWA Focus EMI is its KnowledgeBase functional module, which automatically captures and organizes a range of proven manufacturing best practices and process solutions," noted Sankara Narayanan, Senior Industry Analyst. "Overall, the foundational analytics of NWA Focus EMI are a simple, customer-focused solution that provide most of the benefits manufacturers desire."

Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to a company that has developed a pioneering technology that not only enhances current products, but also enables the development of new products and applications. The award recognizes the high market acceptance potential of the recipient’s technology.

Frost & Sullivan Best Practices awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research to identify best practices in the industry.
