Welcome Aluminum! Introducing Asset Explorer in Our Latest Release

Today we’re announcing the Aluminum release of Element AssetHub. We’re constantly updating our product to reflect the latest learnings working with our customers. Some of you may know that we’ve been tracking each release using a name from the periodic table of elements. With each release as a new atomic number, we give birth to a new Element (Pop Quiz: What is the atomic number of Aluminum? Find out here.).

The Aluminum release adds new features to Asset Explorer. Asset Explorer offers operational teams an easy way to build and explore hierarchies of asset data and is a core function of Element AssetHub. Hierarchies allow different data consumers to view information about the relationships between data in a way that makes sense to them. For example, what’s good for the reliability engineer who wants a hierarchy of target equipment, won’t work for the process engineer who needs to see the data across multiple units within an overall process. If you’d like more detail on what Element AssetHub can do within your organization, read our primer.

Anyhow, back to the new features:

  • Revamped UI
  • Improved scalability
  • Private hierarchies

Calculations. Design is everything.

(For those readers that are unfamiliar with Element AssetHub and need an overview, you can read our co-founders primer).

We're excited to introduce Enterprise Calculations. Calculations reside within our Asset Templates, allowing customers to define relationships between sets of attributes, and can be further used in the Element AssetHub.

With this initial release, our teams have taken great care to create an easy to use experience. We thought it might be interesting for you if we were to lift the hood on our design process, so you can get a sense of how hard we work to come up with features that help to make your job easier.

A Quick Primer on Element’s AssetHub

Andy provided a great overview about why industrial companies need a 360° view of their assets, why an asset-oriented Data Hub is needed to create that, and what are the requirements that Data Hub must fulfill in order to meet the needs of asset-intensive industries. If you haven’t read it, and are struggling to enable your engineers and operators to become citizen data scientists, I highly recommend you give it a read. You’ll understand why prior analytics strategies just aren’t working.

With that background, Element’s AssetHub is the solution that fulfills this gap. Here’s a quick primer on Element AssetHub:

What is Element’s AssetHub?

AssetHub allows you to build an enterprise data model of your assets, using your existing systems to create a comprehensive view of your instrumentation, equipment and processes. It does this by connecting to real-time, design, and other operationally relevant systems. It then constructs a comprehensive data representation of your assets that we call Asset Twins.
