Chemical industry challenges

Increase visibility into asset and operational data

Chemical manufacturers are challenged with low visibility into asset or operations performance on both the plant and enterprise level. Data is often siloed in multiple systems with a low level of integration.

Improve asset reliability

A significant percentage of critical assets in the chemical industry are over 25 years old. Many companies are still using reactive maintenance practices and are unable to detect deviations from unexpected plant operating conditions on time.

Maintain knowledge management

More than 70% of experienced workforce and leadership will retire in the next 15 years. By capturing domain expertise with industrial applications, chemical manufacturers can more easily share best practices and reduce the knowledge gap for a new workforce.

Manage operational risk

With growing complexity in regulations—governmental and environmental—chemical manufacturers must invest more in health, safety, and compliance technology to manage operational risk.

Meet market demand

Current market conditions—which can be volatile—and shifting feedstock prices, chemical manufacturers are often challenged with decentralized production, putting added pressure on operating costs and production flexibility.
