Digital Plant offerings

It’s about exploiting the latest technologies to create a manufacturing plant that is reliable, robust, self-tending and optimized for its wider ecosystem.

What are the challenges for manufacturing companies related to the digital plant?

Achieving the bandwidth necessary for a mobility solution in an industrial plant can be a big hurdle. But once in place, it opens up a vast number of digital worker and digital plant use cases.

What are the opportunities for manufacturing companies related to the digital plant?

From more productive workers, higher performing assets, to optimized operations, there are numerous opportunities to increase performance, improve safety and efficiency, and lower costs.

How can Aliter help?

We can help clients integrate their full range of business systems, from the enterprise level right down to individual pieces of equipment – that’s essential for making the most of the Digital Plant.

Why select Aliter?

Aliter has offerings across the full stack of digital plant operations, from ERP systems at the top, right down to the systems that control equipment at the most granular level.

What are six questions Aliters’ Digital Plant answers?

  1. How well can you predict equipment failures? And how far ahead?
  2. How well can you measure your Operational efficiency?
  3. How well can you measure you breakdowns and how well can you respond to them?
  4. How well can you prevent misplaced parts to go to the customer?
  5. When is your next turnaround planned? How do you keep track of so many contractors on site?
  6. Is asset integrity a big problem for your business? How well can you predict (and prevent) asset failure?

 

 

Operational excellence through Digital Plant

What’s different in manufacturing plants today? There are four key trends that are drastically affecting the way our clients operate:

  1. The pace of innovation is accelerating. Clients are getting new insights from advanced analytics. And they’re able to tap new flows of information through supply chains, assets and operations.
  2. Routine tasks are moving to cognitive. Production is set to be revolutionized by technologies like artificial intelligence and robotics process automation.
  3. Mobility is increasing productivity and safety. Routine tasks – inspection rounds, monitoring, shift log handovers, etc. – are moving to glass, with huge implications for back-end systems and the need for contextualized data.
  4. Ecosystems are connecting producers, customers and suppliers. The number of players within manufacturing ecosystems is exploding, and big shifts are underway related to visibility up and down the supply chain.

These ideas all come together in the digital plant. And, from an Aliter standpoint, there’s a collection of core technologies – spanning mobility, cloud, analytics, all the way through to blockchain – that are set to impact plant operations in a big way.

Deep dive into digital operations

So, what do we mean by the digital manufacturing plant? We mean a plant that is self-aware. A plant that is contact sensitive. And a plant that can make the right decisions on its own. Something like a live plant growing in the wild – able to live and adapt to its natural environment with minimal human intervention. But, right now, most manufacturing plants are more like hothouse orchids: without perfect conditions and constant monitoring, they can’t survive.

Aliter is looking to help the manufacturing industry make that shift – to more robust, self-tending plants, optimized for their wider ecosystems. That’s about moving toward lower-risk, lower-cost automated operations. It’s about creating secure, connected systems. It’s about increasing reliability and reducing the opportunity for human error. And it’s about raising performance. The Digital Plant opens up so many game-changing possibilities for our clients.

The imperative to act

If you ask, ‘why now?’ there are two key responses:

  1. It can be done. Compute and storage costs are now trivial, allowing clients to exploit the huge quantities of data they’ve been collecting – or throwing away – for years. Sensors that see (open computer vision), smell (gas detection) and hear (machine hearing) really work. The analytics and data processing software, much of it open source, is ready to go.
  2. It should be done. The industry need to rethink how it attracts the best and the brightest – these are the technologies they want to work with. Automation can also revolutionize safety – a win/win for everybody. And, as ever more products become commoditized, clients will need to focus on competitiveness and cost optimization.

What services can we offer?

Aliter’s Digital Plantsolution Evolve™ helps our clients transform how they build, maintain, operate and optimize their plant. Aliter aligns its thinking around four key performance levers: workers, assets, operations and projects. You’ll likely find these subjects really resonate with manufacturing clients.

Worker performance. This is about empoweringworkers with the right information at the right time. It means first thinking about mobility and Wi-Fi connectivity in the plant – not easy in an industrialized context where devices must be intrinsically safe and spark-free. Then, the use cases expand exponentially – from tracking workers, accessing enterprise data or work orders in the field, or collaborating with experts. Ultimately, it’s about driving worker productivity and safety.

Asset performance. For assets, it’s about raising the bar for reliability – knowing how an asset is running, when it’s going to fail, and what to do to avoid failure. When a piece of equipment goes down unexpectedly, it can cost up to five times more to get it back up and running than a controlled repair made ahead of time. So, having the capacity to predict failure in advance is critical for improving asset uptime and lowering maintenance costs.

Operations performance. This is about coordinating and optimizing all the moving parts of the enterprise.Think of it as a layer cake – ERP at the top all the way down to the systems that control equipment at the most granular level. It’s about driving client performance across the full stack: lower costs, optimized assets, increased security, improved quality and yield, even regulatory compliance.

Project performance. This is about managing the full project lifecycle of capital builds, whether getting data from engineering and construction companies into clients’ systems, procuring materials, or making sure clients are operationally ready to take over an asset.

A revolution in turnarounds

Digital Plant platform Evolve™ is a product from Aliter which connects the entire operating asset vertically from shop floor to boardroom door and horizontally across the value chain from molecule to consumer, enabling 1-5% in revenue uplift and 2-6% in margin uplift

Our Digital Plant solutions provide predictive, real-time visibility into operational performance, potential risks, and recommended actions, resulting in 10-20% reduced maintenance costs and reduced off-spec product.

In turn, companies can optimize their responses and create opportunities for margin improvements, greater reliability and safer operations

Aliter pragmatic solutions helped clientsto measure performance, control machinery and breakdowns from remote locations. That’s the foundation for a huge leap forward in key metrics: time-on-tools, performance.
