Digitalisation is one of the key strategies you can adopt in pursuit of operational excellence. Applied appropriately, Digitalisation allows the facility to manage day-to-day performance safely and reliably, respond to swings in market dynamics, operate at a true optimum, squeeze down on the gap between potential and realised margin, create more utility for the end customer/ consumer and outmanoeuvre the competition.
It also enables a process operation to extend its problem-solving ecosphere beyond the plant: to engage the support, brainpower and technologies of its key partners, customers and suppliers who can each bring their own specific expertise and experience to augment the plant’s own capabilities and resources.
It can turn a distracted organisation that is stuck reacting to day-to-day issues and inundated with data, information and advice, into an agile, well-tuned machine that anticipates issues and organises to prioritise and solve them before they escalate.
KBC addresses how Digitalisation technologies and best practices can help organisations:
- Capture value through unexploited efficiency or productivity gains
- Discover and generate new revenue
- Execute and sustain that value in the face of continuous change and disruption
- Solve problems that are not viewed as solvable today
- Improve competitiveness
