    INDUSTRY CHALLENGES

    Pulp & Paper

    Number 1

    Challenge:

    Manage efficiencies when critical data resides in different systems.

    Solution:

    The PI System has the power to gather and integrate all your data across all your systems regardless of function or location, which leads directly to more accurate information and incisive decision-making. In fact, Pulp & Paper companies that deploy the PI System have been able to reduce their variable cost of paper production by 1-4% and their cost of quality mill-wide by 3-5%.


    Number 2

    Challenge:

    Derive more value from condition-based maintenance (CBM).

    Solution:

    Monitor the duty cycle of key assets to drive CBM efforts. The PI System is helping leading Pulp & Paper companies monitor asset duty cycles and integrate them with their CBM program. For many companies, the resulting step change in reliability has increased asset availability and uptime – and reduced emergency maintenance by 1.0-3.5%.
