Energy Advisor (Listed in PTC Marketplace) May, 2020 - Jul,2020
Energy Advisor application for manufacturing provides insights on energy efficiency of utility assets and process lines by comparing with optimum levels. Actionable information through KPIs, metrics, alerts and use of Lean methods facilitate quick corrective actions to arrest energy losses. Energy cost of conversion is significant in several industries and there is a need for optimum use of energy, even under varying operating conditions. By use of statistical analysis on plant historic data, dynamic benchmark models are computed to give like-to-like performance visibility for the conditions. Data from DCS, SCADA, PLC, meters, logs and cost is contextualized for near real-time energy analysis in the ThingWorx application. Further, error-code logging and non-conformity with corrective action screens helps management easily review the issues and work towards continuous improvement. Customized models for CPG industries and industrial utility assets help quick deployment to realize efficiency gains.
