Comply with requirements, remain competitive

A highly competitive sector. Because of the emphasis on safety, redundancy strategies are particularly necessary when operating chemicals plant. In addition, there are often batch-based processes based on NAMUR NE 33 or ISA S88. Batches need to be tracked closely, from the raw materials through to the end product.

There also has to be a link to management. Order, production and formula data need to be shared, as do inventories. Flexibility, efficiency and safety in production are key to complying with sector-specific requirements and to remaining competitive. Intelligent software solutions should be deployed to meet these requirements.
