Payback Potential: Achieve more for less with process optimisation and robust decision support systems.
- Evidence-based understanding of process operations, reasons for variations in throughput and quality and the complex interactions affecting performance
- Our expertise in handling and analysing Big Data can revolutionise supply chains, production, and business models
What we do: We integrate information technology (IT) and operations technology (OT) to identify, target and improve key areas for improvement within manufacturing organisations.
- We combine the know-how of Hosokawa’s experienced engineers and the latest PC-based analysis tools
- Benchmark individual equipment and process stages to pinpoint where operations are under performing
- Decide how and when to implement changes to work smarter to get the most out of your existing plant while freeing up time and resources
How we do it: Gen4 combines human process engineering expertise with advanced analytics of historic plant performance data to resolve issues with informed decisions in real-time.
Hosokawa GEN4 technology will:
- Identify and quantify the major influences on plant performance
- Discover causes of poor or abnormal performance and propose ‘best practice’ instead
- Detect explicit opportunities for immediate process improvement
- Recognise and troubleshoot causes of process bottlenecks to remove them
- Quantify potential benefits from plant optimisation
Benefits: The first phase in better understanding your plant involves no capital expenditure.
- Focus on information most relevant to you in transforming either business operations, growth or both
- Make the value judgements and informed decisions based on plant and operations data
- Review advanced manufacturing strategies to maximise returns available from Industry 4.0 technologies
- Quantify returns from deployment of online advisory and intelligent monitoring systems and/or closed loop control
