Leading global companies in complex, capital-intensive industries use Aspen Mtell® software to detect problems well in advance of actual breakdowns. Aspen Mtell software uses data from current and historical process operations along with maintenance and historical records, detecting root cause failure signatures that precede degradation and failure, particularly the excursions in operational conditions that cause the most damage to equipment.  
Aspen Mtell applications work with industrial-grade skillsets and work processes, automatically learning from and adapting to operational changes and new failure conditions. As a result, firms in the process manufacturing, CPG, wastewater, pulp & paper, power & utilities, metals & mining and transportation industries can continually optimize the performance of their assets – improving safety, managing risk, reducing downtime, enhancing productivity and increasing profitability.
