Seeq Corporation has announced availability of it latest release, R22, and beta availability of Seeq Data Lab. Seeq applications include Workbench for easy to use advanced analytics, Organizer for publishing insights in reports and dashboards, and now Seeq Data Lab for accessing Python libraries. These applications empower engineers and scientists in process manufacturing organisations to rapidly analyse, predict, collaborate, and share insights to improve operations and business outcomes. New R22 features support enterprise data governance initiatives and priorities to support Seeq expansion in large organisations. For example, Seeq Integrated Security honors OSIsoft PI security restrictions for PI data access and enables administrators to set signal-level permissions on data in historians and other time series data stores. Each user therefore only has access to the data they need, facilitating data access compliance. Additional R22 features requested by Seeq

users include: • Improved Scatterplot in Workbench:

conditional filtering and more display options help users find relationships among signals more quickly • NOAA Weather Service Connector: data from the National Weather Service API can be

easily integrated into Seeq analytics • Multi-user Awareness: now easy to know when other users are viewing, editing, or presenting the same Worksheet or Topic Seeq Data Lab, now in beta, was driven requests from users to gain access to Python machine learning algorithms, and data scientist requests to leverage Seeq functionality. Seeq Data Lab is built on Jupyter Notebooks and a Seeq Python library, called Spy, to access Seeq functionality, and it is managed by the same administration features as other Seeq applications. The result is a comprehensive set of experiences for process engineers analysing time series data including viewing and reporting of data in Seeq Organizer, advanced analytics with Seeq Workbench, and expanding analytics capabilities with Python libraries in Seeq Data Lab.


Over a third of UK engineers surveyed are concerned that their business will be affected by a lack of skilled workers, according to research by MPA, a professional business services company supporting all aspects of innovation in the UK. The study of 250 UK engineers, examined

some of the biggest challenges faced by the sector and perceptions around the industry’s approach to innovation. The factors that UK engineers feel will have

the biggest impact on their sector over the next five years are: 1. Skills shortage – 37% 2. Automation – 22% 3. Development of new materials – 17% 4. Data usage – 10% 5. Cybersecurity – 4% The research also reveals that businesses are

missing out on potential funding opportunities. 56% claim that their company doesn’t tap into sources of R&D funding or support, such as Innovate UK, crowdfunding or Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs). The research also found that one in five (21%) innovation active engineering firms are

not taking advantage of the government’s R&D Tax Credit scheme, which allows companies to claim back up to 33p for every £1 spent on R&D activity. On average, engineering companies invest £386,000 a year on R&D activity, meaning they are potentially able to claim £100,360 in funding (see link below). Reasons for not claiming the funding vary, but the most common reason given is engineers don’t believe their companies are eligible (10%). Nigel Urquhart, senior technical analyst at

MPA, said: “STEM education and training support are vital for making sure the UK’s economy continues to thrive and will play a key part in ensuring the UK reaches the current government target of 2.4% of GDP being spent on R&D by 2027. “Initiatives like the R&D Tax Credit scheme

allow businesses to free up vital funds that can be used to fund further innovation, which could help ensure UK engineering stays at the forefront of the industry.” To see whether your company is eligible for the R&D Tax Credit scheme, visit: www aquameter


When, eighteen months ago, it was announced that Genesis Process Solutions would market the Farleygreene range of sieves throughout Wales and large parts of England, not many could have foreseen just how successful the partnership would be. But in this relatively short period of time Genesis has exceeded expectations to the point that the company has been awarded the Farleygreene distributorship for the UK and Ireland. Phil Cameron is the sales director for Genesis Process Solutions. He said: “We are really delighted that Farleygreene have the confidence in our abilities to award us the UK and Ireland distributorship. The sales successes over the past eighteen months can be attributed to two factors. In the first instance, the comprehensive range of sieves from Farleygreene and secondly the dedicated team that we have working on the Farleygreene account.” “We now have a fleet of trial machines at our Sandbach office so we can conduct trials in house – or at the customer site. As we are also handling the spare parts enquiries, we now carry a comprehensive spares stock to ensure a fast response time to meet customer’s needs.” Genesis Process Solutions
