Suncoke Energy is delivering fleet-wide Operational Intelligence
Control escalating resource and extraction costs.
Streamline recovery processes, and energy and water consumption. The PI System enables increased mineral recovery by integrating data from your full production chain – from mining blocks plans to comminution processes and concentration to the delivery of mineral concentrate. The PI System also supports more effective energy and water consumption strategies by providing in real time the data needed to monitor your granular usage metrics per ton of ore mined.
Maintain product quality while reducing plant floor costs.
By integrating dissimilar sets of data and events, the PI System helps your people discover critical insights to elevate product quality, and it streamlines operations. For example, the PI System monitors processes and sends alerts on out-of-spec conditions while enabling the integration of lab and operational data to help you understand the impact of the deviation. In addition, plant floor energy consumption can be reduced by detecting process changes that cause energy consumption to exceed forecasted consumption. Finally, you can analyze consumption during peak demand periods to optimize energy utilization to meet peak demands, schedule demand, idle state and demand/response management.

As part Anglo American Platinum process monitoring and improvement the Metallurgists have Key Performance Indicators (KPI's) that they monitor on a daily basis and the old system needed a redesign. A fundamental architecture and product stack review was done with OSIsoft in conjunction with Microsoft and a new system was designed to give more flexibility, to improve maintainability and scalability and to promote user participation/ maintenance.
