Stream Processing and Visualization for Real-Time and Time Series Data

Guide to Process Manufacturing

Any industry that produces bulk quantities of goods such as pharmaceuticals, food, chemicals, or cosmetics, is seeking to produce these products consistently while reducing cost factors like waste and down time. Due to the nature of process manufacturing, multiple ingredients are combined to be mixed, coated, or sorted, so understanding the behavior of these processes is of paramount importance for manufacturers. Through the use of simulation modeling and Smart Manufacturing principals, manufacturers are now able to optimize these processes, leading to greater productivity and profitability.

Use Machine Learning To Predict Remaining Useful Life

Machine learning (ML) and stream processing technology are powerful solutions for remaining useful life (RUL) analysis. Manufactures can use the large amounts of data produced by sensors combined with human inspections of finished pieces to train ML algorithms. The ML tools can then proactively alert operators when a tool is approaching its end of life, allowing them to schedule the replacement for a convenient time. Stream processing algorithms can also process all the sensor data being generated by any number of production machines, make on-the-fly comparisons with historical data, and increase the accuracy of ML algorithms. This solutions flyer explains how smart selection and application of ML tools combined with the availability of clean, governed datasets help manufacturers optimize their maintenance and wear part replacement schedules.

Introduction to Panopticon Streams: Stream Processing with No Coding

Panopticon Streams, a stream processing engine built on the popular Apache Kafka platform, enables business users to build sophisticated Kafka data flows with no coding. Streams connects directly to a wide range of streaming and historic information sources, including Kafka, Kx kdb+, Solace, Hadoop and NoSQL sources. Streams supports critical data functions including: - Streaming Data Prep: Combines multiple real-time streams with historic data sources - Calculation Engine: Calculates performance metrics based on business needs - Aggregation Driver: Combines data as needed - Alerting Engine: Highlights anomalies against user-defined thresholds - Integration with the Confluent Enterprise Control Center - Expanded support for IoT environments, including manufacturing, energy/utilities, and transportation/logistics The engine is designed to be used by people who understand their business problems. They can create their own data flows utilizing data from any number of sources and incorporate joins, aggregations, conflations, calculations, unions, merges, and alerts into their stream processing applications. They can then visualize processed data using Panopticon Visual Analytics and/or output it to Kafka, Kx kdb+, InfluxDb, or any SQL database.

Product Overview Videos

Panopticon Demo: A Real-Time View of Order Book Depth

Traders need to understand what is happening to the order book right now – in real time – plus what has happened during the last few minutes. With Panopticon, traders can monitor for imbalances across instruments, and then investigate the latest book depth from that time onwards. It can query historic data stored in kdb+, OneTick, or virtually any other high performance data repository, or subscribe to live data streams from Kafka, Solace, Rabbit MQ, or other message buses. When traders are monitoring a wide selection of stocks, they need to see a summary of all books along with calculated metrics to display anomalies. If they are monitoring only a few instruments, they most likely want to see them all in parallel. Panopticon supports either use case, and at any time, the user can jump from the live real time view of the order book to see any part of the trading day to examine anomalies in more detail.

Panopticon Demo: Visualize your Order Book with Full Depth

Panopticon enables traders to visualize their Order Books at full depth. While looking at Top of Book to see the spread across time is useful, traders can’t see what’s happening at depth unless they use much more sophisticated visualizations, as demonstrated in this video. Viewing full depth stats across the a selected period makes it easy to understand what is actually happening with trades. Traders can grouping depth into multiple buckets (in order example, ten buckets) and calculate total size, size imbalance, spreads, and size-weighted average bids and offers down the book, at each level of depth. They can see where the book widens and narrows, where the book is balanced, where there are size imbalances, and where orders are more mixed. They can also see how the best spread correlates to the weighted average spread across the book. This approach is especially useful when making comparisons between different instruments. Traders can easily see anomalies in book depth across the market, and how those anomalies change over time, down to the nanosecond level. This dashboard also enables users to see what sort of strategies other firms in the market are trading; for example, is a rival firm’s strategy focused on market making or is it continuously moving liquidity between both sides of the book? Is it sporadic in its order flow? Does it look like spoofing? In this video, we are looking at trading activity for equities, but the system supports all asset classes and quants, traders, and compliance officers can visualize order books for fixed income, derivatives, commodities, and foreign exchange instruments with equal accuracy and depth.
