** Conjecture **is a system
identification software solution which allows you to create best-fit
models of your industrial process data (such as from SCADA) using machine
learning techniques, to
better understand, diagnose, and control your industrial systems.

** Conjecture** can be used in any
industry which requires automated feedback loop control of processes, including
oil and gas, minerals, and manufacturing.

*Conjecture***System
Identification** software solution was developed by Robert A.
Anderson, an electrical and process control engineer from Perth, Western
Australia. In 2011, Robert
began exploring the mathematics of system identification in process control. He
realised that the models and methods commonly taught at university for system
identification were difficult to implement in everyday engineering
work. Furthermore, currently available system identification programs did not
accommodate important process dynamics such as delays and output shifts. This
resulted in models that were a poor representation of real-world
industrial systems.

Over several years of independent work, Robert
identified the machine learning techniques that could be used to model
industrial plant dynamics straight from the data, incorporating both delays
and output shifts. He then set about creating a simple software program to
apply these techniques that would be intuitive to fellow engineers, finally
completing the first prototype of Conjecture in 2017.

**Simplicity**

Most system identification
programs are based on the theoretical models commonly taught in engineering
study, such as z-domains and Laplace transforms, which are difficult to use in
daily engineering
work. In contrast, ** Conjecture **helps the user to
specify a simple model for their data based on time series equations – X’s and
Y’s with time delays and an output shift. It then runs all the calculations
in the background, producing easy-to-understand results that translate directly
to the real-world system.
