Currently, the basic industries in EMEA are facing stringent environmental requirements and the need to reduce their operating costs. Energy and Water costs need to be reduced. As such, we will review several strategic implementations by several customers that will not be able to attend. These customers are drastically reducing energy, water and increasing their assets availability.
This presentation discusses the proposed computer architecture to collect all data and events from all local plants or plants within their industrial complex. We will present one PI AF template that can be reused many times from the raw materials plants, primary transformation plants, final products plants and all manufacturing services for the industrial complex or the enterprise.
Using three industrial case studies, the presentation shows how current customers are saving in excess of 15% of energy when the whole chain supply is managed with real time data and events.
