Clockwork supports customers who operate strategic assets in chaotic, real-world environments. We advance beyond rear-view analyses to investigate intrinsic system complexity in time dependent processes including equipment aging, system-wide interactions and the dynamic effects of operations, maintenance, logistics and unconstrained operating environments. We leverage thirty years of experience in delivering accurate predictive solutions to customers the most challenging industries.
Clockwork delivers powerful predictive answers to asset operations and sustainment challenges driven by accurate representation of future performance and a structured approach that generates data about the future. We help innovative decision makers identify and solve problems months, and years before these challenges impact performance and cost. The results produce ROI that far surpasses the promise of legacy BI on historical data.
Clockwork’s high-resolution predictions are unshackled from past observations. Historical data is only used to establish the starting position: Today’s conditions. From this point forward we generate accurate future observations that span the many possibilities ahead, and we develop in-depth solutions that easily outpace ML and other traditional approaches.
Clockwork generates data to describe the details of future operations—lots of future data. We hold the parameters fixed for each scenario and replicate these future operations many times. Probability distributions are used to model future uncertainty and are allowed to evolve over time. New sets of parameters are modeled in various scenarios to capture the wide breadth of possible future outcomes. Our solutions capture high-resolution detail to portray the effects of aging equipment, changing environments, and transforming processes.
Clockwork leverages technology that produces the correct set of data for strategic decision-making—data about the future that, without this type of advanced predictive analysis, would otherwise not exist. We generate volumes of this future data so that we can examine true relationships between inputs and output.
The data management investments are valuable, they give us a good understanding of where we are today. And that provides an accurate starting point for Clockwork’s predictive solutions. But that’s it—just a starting point. From today forward into the future, our technology explores the unexpected turns that the environment might bring along with the effects of aging equipment, changing component reliability, new maintenance programs, changing operations, and the myriad of adjustments that intricate global operations generate every day. Our approach brings rigor to evaluating the complex, dynamic capital intensive operations that our customers carry out in the face of uncertainty. We’ve successfully delivered insights in both data-poor and data-rich environments for thirty years.
Clockwork leverages the depth and breadth of our predictive simulation experience developed through serving the most challenging customers in aerospace and defense, heavy equipment, manufacturing, power transmission, as well as oil and gas. Advances in computing power and data management technologies now unshackle asset managers from the limitations of traditional forecasting. Clockwork is combining extensive experience in predictive modeling with advanced data storage and processors to deliver solutions that leverage today’s best advances.
By employing Clockwork’s rigorous predictive modeling solutions we avoid chasing after distractions and focus on those small actions that build into larger successes at all three levels:
- A visionary strategy prepared for future obstacles and focused on long-term business objectives.
- Flexible operations that enable continuous adjustments of the strategy and support effective tactics through detailed understanding of processes that accurately link the past and present to future outcomes.
- Day-to-day tactics driven by a clear understanding of which observations are important and which are simply noise. These insights enable small adjustments that keep the enterprise on track to achieve metrics and goals that maximize asset performance while controlling costs.
