Processing plants are complex, with intricate, non-linear interactions across thousands of variables and multiple trade-offs to solve for. Operating decisions are typically made through process control tools solving for a local optimization, or are based on an individual operator’s experience, which can vary significantly. Amidst this complexity, technology generates enormous amounts of data across the value chain. When used to its full potential, data can drive productivity improvement and help plants achieve optimal results.
Capturing value from advanced analytics requires multiple skillsets, such as data science, process control and metallurgy, IT, change management, and capability building. OptimusAI leverages a full portfolio of digital solutions that combines science, data, and experts to help processing plants in heavy industries make data-driven decisions to improve profit per hour.
