Building Machine Learning Agents using Aspen Mtell

This course will help you prepare for the certification exam and the exam fee is waived with this course.

The Aspen Mtell application is a condition monitoring solution that uses automated Machine Learning to stop machines from breaking down, makes them last longer, reduces maintenance costs, and increases the net product output of any process.

This course prepares students to build Agents for use in a Mtell real-time monitoring solution. In this training, learn the Aspen Mtell implementation methodology to create Machine Learning Agents for a single asset. Practice automatic Agent tuning for the best accuracy and earliest detection of excursions from normal behavior. Utilize past failure data and the precise patterns that match degrading conditions that lead to failure to build failure Agents. Additionally, learn to create hidden failure Agents to fully specify your input data to create agents ready for 24/7 use.  Lastly, deploy the Machine Learning Agents for continuous protection of critical plant assets.


Engineers, Consultants or Managers focused on Preventative Maintenance and System Reliability.
