Strategic Implementation of Petuum AI-pilot to Improve Energy Utilization and Yield at CEMEX
CEMEX has continuously implemented technologies and best practices in order to increase energy efficiency and to maximize the capacity of each process and unit operation used in the manufacturing of cement. Continuing with this strategic vision, CEMEX decided to implement Petuum’s AI-pilot in order to obtain operational benefits beyond those achieved with current technologies.
This presentation will show the implementation strategy of the Petuum Industrial AI-pilot to optimize the operations of the main processes such as kilns, ball mills, and vertical mills at multiple plants. After the implementation phase, Petuum AI-pilots are used to continuously operate at peak efficiency, adapting to the ever-changing conditions of the process variables and equipment.
The speakers will provide insight on how the Petuum Industrial AI-pilot products, deployed at different operations, integrate with plant control systems to deliver real-time prescriptions and achieve continuous optimization.
