FAQ: What is baselining?


What is baselining?

Baselining is a period of sampling (typically 2-3 weeks) where an asset's patterns of normal behavior are established. Once connected and sending run data, machines are immediately covered by several of Augury’s algorithms, with others becoming active later. Machines likely to be in Alarm or Danger are flagged by the algorithms and baselined quickly (typically within days) by our VAs to reduce the risk of failure.

Machines not flagged by the algorithm as high risk are allowed to run for longer, typically 2 weeks but sometimes even a month before an analyst or the algorithms set a baseline status. The machines are still being actively monitored during that time. This ensures an accurate status based on many operational modes while mitigating the risk of failures.
