Plant-level digital twins take plant day-to-day ERP to the next level. Digital Twins help improve day-to-day ERP decision-making by presenting important information visually in a single source.
Digital twins are used to create an understanding of the current situation in each plant and what needs to happen next. They also show how far behind schedule any part of production may be.
It is also important to know why things are the way they are. Accurate and easy-to-understand information about operations helps take decision-making to a new level.
The most important information must be available in a fast and visually comprehensible form. Having to read hundreds of lines of information to understand a situation causes the overall picture to be formed more slowly and the risk of misunderstandings increases.
“The easier the information is to understand, the better decisions can be made. If decision-makers don’t know what the information means, they also don’t know how to act accordingly.”
Marko Yli-Pietilä, Head of Smart Operations, Stora Enso.
Plan production stops carefully
Minimize the time required for maintenance outages, their planning, and production shutdowns.
Leave paper piles in the past – the information needed to plan maintenance outages (e.g. work permits) is available in real time in the application.
Presenting information visually is also useful in many other contexts, such as maintenance management, including proactive maintenance and production line performance management.
Preventive maintenance and condition-based maintenance can help avoid unplanned production disruptions and cumulative effects. This can lead to significant savings in corrective maintenance. Our 3D Digital Twin application can be combined with the maintenance of existing systems. You can use one comprehensive system, or several systems from different equipment suppliers.
