  • Simplified setup: Get started quickly with minimal coding expertise.
  • Diverse analytical methods: Explore options like ARIMA Filter, Feature Extraction, Normalization Processors, Linear Prediction, Statistical Prediction, and Machine Learning (ML) Models for predictive, classification, or anomaly detection tasks.
  • Tailored solutions: Find industry-specific functions for targeted insights.

Litmus Edge has various types of Analytics functions that are tailored for specific industrial scenarios. By implementing these functions, organizations can experience a significant reduction in downtime, an increase in productivity, and foster innovation in their operations. This marks a significant leap forward towards realizing the goals of Industry 4.0.

Choosing the Right Tool for the Job

Both Flows and Analytics feature in Litmus Edge offers distinct capabilities for data management. 


Flows require JSON knowledge for full customization, allowing for complex data routing and format parsing, with options for creating specialized dashboards and sending alerts. 

Flows automate and refine manufacturing sequences, adjusting operations in response to live data. They excel in precision-dependent facilities, where they fine-tune tool performance and predict maintenance, safeguarding against equipment failure.

  • Automate Manufacturing Workflows: Use Flows to control manufacturing operations dynamically, responding in real-time to data inputs.
  • Customized Data Processing: Tailor Flows to optimize equipment performance in precision-dependent settings, ensuring tool longevity and preempting failures.


Analytics simplifies the process with pre-set functions and an easier setup, ideal for those with less coding experience, but offers limited customization. It can output topics and visualize data, fitting different user needs in industrial data processes.

Analytics stands out in predictive maintenance, utilizing data trends to forecast equipment malfunctions. This foresight enables timely interventions, saving costs and maintaining uninterrupted production.

  • Routine Performance Monitoring: Ideal for tracking KPIs in manufacturing, providing clarity on performance metrics, and facilitating informed decision-making.
  • Predictive Maintenance: Harness historical and real-time data to anticipate machine failures scheduling maintenance to prevent downtime.


By streamlining data processing, gaining actionable insights, and optimizing operations, you can achieve:

  • Increased efficiency and productivity
  • Reduced downtime and maintenance costs
  • Improved decision-making
  • Enhanced innovation and competitive advantage
