How data and analytics can improve process productivity

Analyzing operations data can uncover opportunities for adjustments that deliver big impacts on overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) and process efficiency.

  • Conserve resources

    Avoid wasting resources and labor by using advanced analytics to identify process inefficiencies and improve workflows.

  • Prevent unplanned deviations

    No more scrambling for solutions. Minimize downtime and unplanned process deviations. Take proactive rather than corrective action.

Support digital transformation

Demonstrating the value of real-time data can help your company embrace the changes necessary for a digital transformation. Improve data access and support collaboration.

Covestro is using the PI System to support its digital transformation: improving operations and increasing OEE through better use of its data.

From inefficiency to productivity

  • Achieve high levels of productivity

    Unify streams of information into one comprehensive system to achieve the highest levels of process productivity and system performance.

  • Create visibility

    Use the PI System to create visibility into your processes, allowing you to track each step of your production.

  • Turn data into decisions

    The PI System captures data from sensors, equipment, and other devices to turn it into real-time information to help improve productivity.

  • Share data across the enterprise

    See assets and monitor productivity and efficiency in real time. Ensure everyone is always working toward the same goals.
