The Practical Path of Digital Transformation

Thu. June 14| 1:00 PM - 1:45 PM | Booth 1677

Making the shift from a conventional plant to a digital plant takes place using a collection of technologies across several plant processes. In some cases, it's a matter of making traditional processes more efficient — as in automating an assembly line — while other cases involve a rethinking of those processes — as in shifting from preventive maintenance to predictive condition monitoring. Creating an effective path toward a digital operation involves choosing each step in the plan wisely. Plant managers often select first-step processes such as predictive maintenance that deliver a clear return on investment and present little cultural change before employing the more challenging, and sometimes expensive, technologies such as robotics, IoT, and data analytics. This session will use cases studies to show a practical path to digitized automation.
