Autonomous manufacturing using AI with machine learning allows for improved product quality, optimized use of raw materials and reduced water and energy consumption.

ProcessMiner Selected To Showcase At Venture Atlanta 2019

Deployed at St. Croix Tissue in Baileyville, Maine, OPTIX recently enabled the mill to accomplish something that was previously impossible. Using a closed-loop controller in conjunction with OPTIX quality parameter predictions, the mill was able to control its strength chemistry autonomously to ensure optimal chemical feed and adhere to target parameters.

“OPTIX has shown that it can reasonably predict different lab-tested parameters,” said Devin Rose, technical manager at St. Croix Tissue. “We’ve used this prediction in a closed-loop controller and successfully reduced variation in the final product. As a result, we’re excited about the value of this program.”

Launched by Solenis in early 2019, the novel OPTIX platform is operational in nine paper mills throughout North America and Europe, with additional deployments in progress. AI-powered predictive analytics of key quality parameters allows for on-the-fly process improvement, real-time process insights and continuous chemical control leading to improved target adherence, improved product quality and substantial cost savings.

COVID-19 is accelerating the need for autonomous manufacturing as operators seek to improve operational efficiency without making significant cap-ex investments and limiting human interaction. As a result, there has been mounting interest in the OPTIX platform, which enables the application of autonomous control to extend well beyond strength chemistry.

“Solenis continues to deliver innovative solutions that solve the complex problems that exist in the pulp and paper industry,” said Andreas Türk, president, Eurasia, Solenis. “Our partnership with ProcessMiner enables us to uniquely deliver the cutting-edge artificial intelligence and machine learning technology required for real-time, predictive analytics and autonomous manufacturing.

Connected Manufacturing 2020: What makes a good CDO?

Gear Process Icon

Written by Team ProcessMiner

In the News

The Connected Manufacturing Leaders Summit in Berlin brings together Ops tech and Info tech from some of the world’s biggest manufacturers; all of them on the quest for Industry 4.0.

Manufacturing Global was in the audience to hear a panel discussion packed with insight on “Connecting the ‘purpose’ to the data.”

ProcessMiner CEO, Karim Pourak, Moderated an Expert Panel

Moderator Karim Pourak, CEO, ProcessMiner introduced an expert panel featuring John Vermeer, Director Digital & Smart Factory, Philips, Jens Schmidt, Global Technology Director, Dow Chemical, Damodar Hedge, Director Digital Operations Excellence & Digital Supply Chain, Coca-Cola and Tony Lewis, Global Product Manager – Digital Services, Solenis.

Connected Manufacturing 2020: What Makes A Good CDO?

The panel considered a question at the heart of digital transformation for manufacturers: “How can you best define your business goals to gather the right data and make forward-thinking decisions?”

Addressing the rise of digital from the factory floor to the boardroom…

The Connected Manufacturing panel reflected on the role of the Chief Digital Officer and what makes a good CDO.

“It’s a tremendous help if that person understands the manufacturing process and can map the digital part to what’s actually happening on the shop floor with the workflow,” said Schmidt. “It’s beneficial if that person isn’t purely from manufacturing and trying to learn digital stuff; you need to find someone with a solid grounding in the digital world and at the same time understand the challenges of the factory world. The difficulty comes in managing expectations while keeping up with what’s happening in the marketplace.”

Expanding on the need to manage the expectations of shareholders and investors, Hegde noted that digital is an area where managers aspiring to be CDOs will end up getting a new job title every quarter based on the idea that “if you want to get something done give it to someone who is busy”. He added that a big part of the Chief Digital Officer role is involving all areas of the business in your decision making, so it’s important that they are sitting at the table rather than reporting into a CIO or Head of Finance.

“It should be someone who can translate buzz words into something useful,” advised Vermeer. “They need to be realistic about what can be achieved.”

Lewis echoed the need for a translator and facilitator of the big pieces that make up the jigsaw of a digital transformation.

Connected Manufacturing 2020 - What Makes A Good CDO?

“They need to manage how the company moves forward because people respond to progress. The most important thing for a CDO is to get a budget and the chance to set some approvals and statements in your company,” said an IoT professional who commented from the audience. “You can be a super good networker but if you don’t have the power and the due diligence to go and change something, you’ve just got a title because your company wanted to show its was doing something about Industry 4.0 but wasn’t that serious about it.” She argued that there was no point in occupying a role that could commission debt with no power to change anything. “If your serious about having a CDO in your company, give them the power and the budget to enable them to make the changes we’re all serious about.”

Pourak highlighted that when it comes to areas like AI it was sometimes hard to show value in the short-term and that companies often question their outlay and don’t have the patience for the long-term value delivery a CDO could bring.
