Process Data Monitor and anomaly detection software. Process Data Monitor is a condition monitoring and anomaly detection solution that can automatically adapt to changing operational conditions. This is a Control Engineering 2012 Engineers’ Choice finalist.Process Data Monitor (PDM) is an innovative condition monitoring and anomaly detection solution currently available from Aware Technology. PDM is unique in the market due to its ability to operate in "open book" mode and to automatically adapt to changing operational conditions. PDM leverages a powerful data clustering and pattern recognition algorithm first introduced by NASA and more recently enhanced by Aware Technology. The original NASA algorithm has been used extensively in the monitoring of complex systems ranging from the launch of the Space Shuttle to the control and maintenance of the International Space Station.

PDM actively monitors the datastreams from numerous, interacting sources, and it applies a clustering algorithm to recognize patterns—patterns that represent the fingerprints of unusual and/or troubling trends. U.S. Patent 8,036,999 confers intellectual property rights to Aware Technology in the area of complex data clustering and dynamic modeling—in particular, the operation of technologies such as the company's PDM solution in the "open book" or learning mode. This method of operation enables technologies to modify existing models and to formulate new models while actively monitoring the condition of business-critical systems. This ability is the foundation of dynamic learning and represents the essence of experience.
