Diagnosis and analysis
Managing the condition of your assets is
easy with @ptitude Analyst
• Flexible setup gives you complete control
• Alarm viewing options let you quickly focus on priorities
• Built-in tools streamline data management
Machine data customized for your
unique needs
From the way you set up databases, routes and analysis
parameters, to the customized format for reporting, you
are in control of powerful analysis tools. You can collect
information based on location, machine type, frequency, or
other selections. @ptitude Analyst allows you to determine
the appropriate limits for alarm conditions and how alarms
are categorized to ensure you receive consistent, reliable
data in the format that suits you best.
Automated features simplify configuring
and fine-tuning alarms
Since similar machines often use the same alarms, the
Alarm Database provides user-defined alarms that can be
applied to create alarm settings for multiple measurement
An Alarm Wizard assists in creating Statistical Alarms to set
alarms for your most important machinery with minimal
research and effort. @ptitude Analyst considers historical
data and natural variation in vibration levels of machinery
and generates a reliable set of alarm criterion tailored to the
specific machine.
@ptitude Analyst’s variable speed alarming features
accommodate normal fluctuations in machine speed and
function. Alarm limits are automatically reset as speed
changes, preventing false alarms.
Robust capabilities that are easy to use
SKF @ptitude Analyst makes analysis easier by combining
powerful data mining technology, analytical displays and
user-friendly graphics.
• Preference options let @ptitude Analyst work the way you
• Single views, trends and overlays expand your analysis
• Easy to read plots provide detailed information
Detailed information - efficiently
Screen displays such as data plot layout, color, size and
position can be personalized and automatically updated. A
customizable toolbar facilitates quick access to the program
features you use most frequently.
Right click on your data plot to modify settings and machine
information. When you scroll across a data plot, data values
are displayed in the plot window.
SKF @ptitude Analyst – Powerful software for enterprise-wide communications
Enhanced alarm view saves
valuable time
Alarm view
Alarm View window displays all points
that require immediate attention to help
you quickly identify and prioritize followup activities. The Alarm Details window
offers a comprehensive list of the specific
points in alarm and the level and type of
alarm, all in one convenient view.
Auto Linking makes it easy to view
individual alarms because the data plots
and alarm details change automatically
as you select specific points, saving time
and simplifying the analysis process.
Versatile viewing options
for multi-parameter
For fast and easy comparison of two or
more readings across multiple points,
@ptitude Analyst allows you to select
a measurement and drag and drop it
into the plot, providing convenience and
saving time.
The SKF @ptitude Analyst frequency
analysis feature helps to identify specific
bearing and gearbox frequency sets for
rapid detection and correction of bearing
and machine problems.
Trend, spectrum and other plots can be displayed for each machine in alarm for further
Multi-pane plots
@ptitude Analyst’s on-line data view
automatically refreshes to display
the latest information, point status
and alarm details. Live views provide
immediate update of displayed data
while the Event Log documents specific
occurrences over time. The System
Information view provides one-stop
navigation between different views
such as Event Log, On-line Data view,
individual routes and workspaces.
@ptitude Analyst’s database
management tools allow you to closely
track machine problems to recreate
events for predictive maintenance and to
perform root cause failure analysis.
@ptitude Analyst allows you to view multiple data plots in a single window. View Trend/
Spectrum, Trend/Spectrum/Time, and more to make the most reliable and accurate decisions on
SKF @ptitude Analyst – Powerful software for enterprise-wide communications
Access and security
Controlling access while effectively
communicating information
@ptitude Analyst permits access on a customized basis, yet
allows the effective exchange of detailed information across
functional departments.
• Definable security protects your valuable data
Advanced security system protects data
Four standard security levels are provided within @ptitude
Analyst and an unlimited number of custom user security
levels can be created. Each level represents access rights
that can be limited and controlled to prevent unauthorized
use of the system and limit the possibility of inadvertent
damage to your valuable program database.
• Easy and flexible reporting options
• Automated functions minimize human error
Personalized access rights allow the software administrator to protect against errors and enable traceability.
SKF @ptitude Analyst – Powerful software for enterprise-wide communications
Customized reports
Extensive report customization features let the user
control the specific kinds of machine information to be
communicated throughout the organization. You can
customize the templates or design an entirely new report
including data plots, supplemental information and digital
Reports are generated in HTML format, giving you the
flexibility to view on-screen, print, attach to an e-mail or
post the report to your company intranet – automatically.
Other features allow you to maintain a history of reports,
pre-configure report content and format to share with
selected users.
Automatically schedule reports to save
The Scheduler Wizard enables a user to automatically
schedule a specific action, such as generating a report
upon completion of a data collection upload, archiving
measurement data at a specified time or other event-based
actions. This capability helps to eliminate human error and
allows the user to focus on other more pressing issues.
Using @ptitude Analyst throughout your organization allows
collaboration and communication without losing control of
your data.
Predefined report templates make it easy to generate common reports such as last measurement, exception, overdue/non-compliant, history, route
statistics, and others.

NOTE 1: These requirements apply to SKF @ptitude Analyst complete with database management system. Other applications running simultaneously may degrade performance.
NOTE 2: These requirements ONLY apply to SKF @ptitude Analyst complete with database management system. Additional storage disk space is required for data.
NOTE 3: The major benefits of spreading Oracle across three or more hard disks at the server is the improved speed, and improved recoverability of a previously archived database.
The recommended five disk configuration provides the optimal protection for backup, recovery, indexing, and speed. Disk/file configuration should ONLY be handled by a SKF
Field Service Technician certified on SKF @ptitude Analyst. If using RAID, the combination of RAID 0 and RAID 1 is recommended over RAID 5.
NOTICE: If running other versions of Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, or other database management system are expected to run in the same PC environment, please
contact your local SKF Representative to inquire about compatibility.
