Features of Proficy CSense

GE Digital’s Proficy CSense’s Troubleshooter enables engineers mining insight from available sensor and production data.

Mine new insight from data

Proficy CSense’s Troubleshooter enables engineers to rapidly troubleshoot continuous, discrete, or batch manufacturing process performance by mining insight from available sensor and production data.


Seamless connectivity, rich visualization, and predictive analytics enable users to analyze operating scenarios, quantifying the impact that operational changes will have on key-performance metrics and identifying causes for performance variation.


  • Supports full Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) value journey
  • From simple calculations to predictive machine-learning models to real-time optimization and advanced-control algorithms
GE Digital’s Proficy CSense’s software enables engineers to rapidly develop analytic solutions to help improve production.

Rapidly develop analytic solutions

Proficy CSense’s Architect enables engineers to rapidly develop analytic solutions that typically improve production throughput, yield, quality, and efficiency with significant margins. 


A comprehensive analytic solution-development environment provides visual analytic building blocks to build and test calculations, predictive analytics, and real-time optimization and control solutions with connectivity to real-time and historical data sources and drag-and-drop access to rich functional libraries.  


  • Plug & play connectivity to historical and real-time data sources and automation systems
  • Built-in support for data quality to make real-time data cleaning and validation easy
  • Comprehensive platform to develop, integrate, test, and deploy real-time analytic solutions

Speed deployment through greater efficiency

Solutions are saved as reusable templates for easy deployment to similar assets or process units and permanently deployed into production using the Proficy CSense Action Object Manager.


While Proficy CSense’s Troubleshooter enables engineers to find answers faster with analytics-guided data mining and process-performance troubleshooting, CSense Architect allows them to more easily capture expert knowledge and best practices—combined with insight mined from data with CSense Troubleshooter—into high-value analytic templates for rapid enterprise-wide deployment.

Enhance engineering productivity

Creating a Process Twin for smarter manufacturing is easy with Proficy CSense. Visual drag-and-drop analytics accelerate time to value and reduce dependence on data scientists and programmers.  Online demos enable rapid mastery of the software with easy-to-follow demonstrations and guided simulations.


  • Rapid wizard-driven data mining for engineers for fast time-to-insight
  • Easy visual drag-and-drop functional blocks for subject matter experts and engineers
  • Analytic solution templates without programming:  simple calculations, data cleaning, maths, statistics, machine-learning models, real-time optimization, and advanced process control
  • Access to popular script languages and CSense SDK for powerful analytic solutions with plug-and-play incorporation of Python, Matlab, and 3rd party .Net content


Hear from our customers

Read how Proficy CSense helps our customers improve production throughput, yield, quality, and efficiency.


Some systems are just too complex and have too many variables for operators to run optimally. That’s when we need the help of dedicated advanced-control intelligence that can deal with the complexities of our unique problems.”

We use Proficy’s advanced analytics as a kind of process intelligence (PI), so we have benefited from all the data we collect. We have done an energy project where we reduced stirring in the process tanks by 35%-45%. It is not necessarily the energy we have saved (as the price is low), but the reduced operation we have and thereby less wear and maintenance. The next project is CO2 reduction in aeration tanks, where we will try to optimize O2 in relation to nitrous oxide emissions.

We achieved some excellent results with our first project, and we see a great future optimization potential with the tool.
