Digital Transformation in Industrial Plants and Manufacturing

Digital transformation buzzwords are abundant – IIoT, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Big Data, Industry 4.0, and Digital Twins – but how are the industrial and manufacturing adopters applying new digital technologies to drive innovation, efficiency, and profitability in their Factory of the Future? Society has been collecting data for years, but the ability to leverage these new technologies to process, manage and analyze the data beyond the limitations of the human mind is emerging.

Industry 4.0 or Digitalization refers to the next evolution of manufacturing, transitioning from islands of automation and electronics to interconnected, self-monitoring, self-learning facilities. Society is still in the early stages of this next evolution the technologies available today are already providing benefits to manufacturing facilities. Improvements to predictive maintenance, product quality and efficiency, factory floor to boardroom integration, and materials planning are being realized by companies embracing Industry 4.0.

Digital Twin

A digital twin utilizes connected smart technologies to create a digital replica of physical assets and processes. Until recently, implementation of a Digital Twin in a cost-effective manner was in many cases not feasible. IIoT, Big Data, and companies such as Google – who open source their AI platforms – have opened the door to practical application and implementation of digital twin technology.

The online operational digital twin is based on cumulative, real-time, real-world data measurements across an array of dimensions. These measurements create an evolving profile of your assets and processes in the digital world for historical, current, and future behavior of the physical plant assets and processes occurring within that plant. The digital twin serves as a model of asset health to forecast and recommend action for informed decision making and avoidance of asset failures. With a digital twin, you can safely explore “what if” scenarios without putting people or the asset at risk. The digital twin can provide important insights upstream and downstream to identify opportunities to fine tune system performance, manufacturing processes, and maintenance execution.

Hargrove Controls & Automation understands the practical application of digital twin technology. Our Team can help you create a valuable model of your plant’s physical asset to monitor behavior and performance for optimization opportunities. Here is a video from one of our technology partners that demonstrates the value of digital twins.
