One of the major advantages of this solution compared to other systems is that Bharat Forge is able to administer it itself after implementation. Additionally, it is able to change reports and to create its own reports, based on target-group-oriented requirements within the company, as well as reports to help satisfy ever increasing legal institutions and environmental organisations. Last but not least, looking at the usage of gas, a continuous and stable process was created.
By establishing integration and connectivity between the production energy usage and historical data analysis, Bharat Forge has taken an important step towards realising The Connected Enterprise®, making its production smart and sustainable.
Bharat Forge is planning to install further electrical meters throughout the entire production facility in order to identify energy usage even more precisely. Outdated gas and water meters are to be replaced by meters with M-Bus connectivity and integrated into the system infrastructure. Furthermore, additional data meters and CompactLogix controllers are to be deployed.
The reports that have been used intensely are continuously updated. Moving forward, Bharat Forge is planning to install mobile alarming tools to deliver automatic notifications to production management staff, in case of an unexpected pending peak load, in order to allow timely action.
