Adapting to the New Normal by Digitalizing Your Chemical Operations

The global pandemic has caused upheaval everywhere in the economy and especially in the chemical industry where demand destruction, disrupted supply chains and human capital challenges have been exacerbated. However, perhaps there’s a silver lining: the accelerating adoption of digital technologies to safely and efficiently run operations in the new normal. And this has become a requirement to maintain a competitive advantage; it’s no longer a “nice to have”. While the chemical industry just can’t digitalize overnight, it can’t afford to wait years to reap the benefits of a digital thread.

This panel discussion will bring together a variety of industry experts to discuss how digitalization can be rapidly achieved with the right technology, smart assets and planning to provide lasting business value.

You'll learn the following:

Your Chemical Resource

Automation Fair At Home will feature a number of sessions, exhibitors and showcase new products and solutions for the chemical industry. 

Sessions:

Automation Fair At Home offers a wide array of sessions - from interactive hands-on labs, product and technology sessions, to DX Strategists presentations. We narrowed down the session list to those applicable to your specific industry. 

Here are the top five sessions we think will benefit anyone in the chemical industry. 

DX Strategists
DX07 - Understand the Value of PLM in Your Digital Transformation

Over the last 25 years PLM has evolved from engineering-focused document management and product data management to more strategic quality management and innovation management capabilities. Digital thread capabilities pushes the scope even further because PLM manages critical product data throughout the product lifecycle and across the supply chain. PLM provides a critical infrastructure for the digital transformation of the end-to-end product development lifecycle. Tackling this strategic, mission-critical PLM of today requires a comprehensive, integrated approach that combines business value, technology and organizational change.

PSUG
PRATE03 - Batch Management and Control

Need to have a single record to pull data from multiple systems to tell the full production story? Looking to reduce time to market by taking a modular approach to batch process design and automation? This is your opportunity to ask the experts about the latest batch industry best practices and system capabilities to optimize design, improve flexibility, provide more intuitive operations and achieve your production goals. This session features a panel of subject matter experts ready to answer audience questions and discuss current topics and trends regarding the automation of batch processes.

PSUG
PRPT03 - Implementation of PlantPAx® Systems: Best Practices and What's New

Engineering efficiency and consistent delivery are key topics for implementing any DCS successfully. Learn how to bring the Rockwell Automation® Modern DCS to the market faster using the latest capabilities and guidelines for implementing a system including the newly introduced graphic framework. This session will cover tools such as bulk-editing of library code and control strategies of common process functions. We will also cover system-wide functionality such as the integration of alarming and the ability to display information with contextual relevance. 

Product and Tech Session
PT33 - What is Your Digital OEE Strategy? Innovate to Improve Operational Performance

Does your OEE solution report data, but lack insight? To make real improvements, you need to understand not just how your assets are performing, but why. Your workforce needs real-time data with actionable information that makes them more aware and efficient, so they can make your plant more productive. Learn how a scalable OEE strategy can help your workforce to visualize, benchmark and optimize assets and information as you implement your digital transformation using your existing control system and data you already collect.

Product and Tech Session
PT77 - A Simplified Intelligent Packaged Power Experience with Effective Program Management

Learn how our upfront consultative and program management services can help you across the full lifecycle – from initial design through commissioning, maintenance and optimization of your intelligent power system. We start with conceptual designs for an intelligent power solution, allowing for a complete digitally enabled power system along with intelligent motor and drive control. This helps mitigate risk with coordinated full scope solutions, including required switchgear, E-houses, MCC’s, drives, and complete eSCADA and control systems. Come discover how our program management and project services can help you take the next step.
