Rail Yard Operational Excellence at Olin Bécancour
Continuing the pursuit for operational excellence, Olin Chemicals has modernized their rail yards to improve stock visibility, reduce shipping errors, and improve overall rail yard management. Updating a manual monitoring and management system to the PI System allowed Olin to leverage their existing PI System infrastructure to include processes outside of the plant that are critical to perfect order delivery. Providing real-time reporting for batch tracking, inventory, status, and output, the new system provides increased visibility across the site allowing better decision making and faster reaction times to schedule changes.
