Historically, this has led to islands of automation. When there are multiple local control rooms, important information can quickly get lost, resulting in poor efficiency and financial losses.
Key fact: Around 75% of assets are unconnected to ‘smart’ networks
Integrating islands of automation provides a unified view of production, and is key to improving decision making and optimising the complete value chain. Centralised operations also promote collaboration among operators, giving everyone access to the same information so they can coordinate their targets.
Cloud-based IIoT applications streamline complex operations by giving local operators a holistic view of production, integrating important information into one control room, and connecting data from multiple sources. When this happens, it optimises resources, minimises operational costs, maximises productivity, and improves HSSE initiatives.
