Unlock the power of data and knowledge for efficient plant operations and maintenance.
Manufacturing plants across diverse sectors, such as consumer packaged goods (CPG), chemicals, pharma, and energy are unable to realize the true potential of data collected from their plants. Although plant operators are keen to use data-driven insights to make informed decisions like tuning the process parameters, due to a lack of tools, critical business decisions often depend on operators’ knowledge and recall, which can lead to biased decisions. For example, a plant manager might only respond to symptomatic conditions such as high pressure or temperatures in a boiler in a plant without understanding the root causes behind it.
A better way to harness data and digitally, and harmoniously, interpret knowledge is needed to enable more informed decision-making.
Make your plant operations agile and sustainable with the power of AI.
TCS Cognitive Plant Operations Adviser, developed on Microsoft Azure, helps to rapidly build and deploy cutting-edge digital solutions. Azure cloud-based platform helps to unlock the power of knowledge, data, and engineering sciences to make industrial plants more intelligent and future-ready. It can help improve product quality, reduce cognitive load on operators, increase product yield, and minimize safety incidents in a plant.
The solution brings together all core elements within a plant—product, process, equipment, plant to Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA), Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), engineering drawings—to build intelligent digital twins (a virtual model perfectly reflecting a physical object) of not just plants, systems, and processes, but operators too. Digital twins, along with AI-ML algorithms, can help in self-monitoring, self-diagnosis, self-optimization, and self-learning of plant processes.
TCS Cognitive Plant Operations Adviser’s built-in capabilities also help make plant operations predictive, prescriptive, and self-aware with causal reasoning to reduce operations and maintenance costs, improve product quality, reduce emissions, drive additional revenue via increased throughput, and make production lines more agile and safe.
Maximize digitalization impact with timely operator recommendations.
With TCS Cognitive Plant Operations Adviser, plant operators can ensure real or near real-time plant monitoring. They can also identify deviations from expected behavior, alert operators about potential problems, and provide recommendations to act on—and prevent—possible failures.
Our solution can help you:
Optimize manufacturing operations in real time to improve flexibility and availability
Reduce operations and maintenance cost and improve plant resilience
Ensure compliance with sustainability regulations
Enhance plant safety and reduce operations risk
Enable localization of impending issues with impact and advice, enhancing decision-making
