Driving efficiencies through digital data is important. However, when its reliant on sensor data only to detect anomalies and trends that alert to an impending failure, the operator cannot achieve efficiency savings above 1% to 2%. That's because standard operating procedure remains rooted in corrective maintenance practices, resulting in costly repairs and downtime.
Frost & Sullivan recently featured Sentient Science in its Best Practices Report for Wind Prognostics, recognizing our combined materials science and data science technological approach over data science-only solutions.

Why does a computational software company need a physical test lab anyways?
Since our Series B funding round closed last July, we've been adding new critical team members to our staff each week. Yesterday, our CEO Ward Thomas took our new Vice President of Supplier Network, Karen Hannum, and our Chief Financial Officer, Brendan Harrington, to the Center for Computational Research to see where our materials-based models are simulated.

Wind turbines are designed to operate for 20 years. However, wind operators experience gearbox failure rates of up to 50 percent across the lifetime of their fleet. As a result, the industry spends billions of dollars annually in supply chain costs. High transportation costs and logistical difficulties, especially in remote and offshore locations, contribute to an asset manager’s need to invest in digital technologies that provide visibility into the maintenance and inventory budget needs on an annual and multiyear basis.
Over the last six years, GE has spent more than $4 billion transforming its 125-year old GE, traditionally known for manufactured products, and set out to turn it into a digital company. GE attributed the shift in business strategy and service to the success of digital platforms like Amazon and Microsoft Corp., according to a recent article published by Reuters.
Last week, our friends at Invest Buffalo Niagara came to our headquarters in the Butler Mansion to see how we've progressed as a company.
