ICONICS, a global provider of automation software solutions, recently worked with a Denmark-based global engineering company that delivers factories, machinery and services to the cement and mining industries. Through digital transformation, the customer sought to leverage its data to improve insights and to create high-quality products at faster rates and lower costs.
The company’s primary goal was to offer equipment and asset performance monitoring services within a scalable platform for multiple clients. It understood that data alone was not enough, and that software was required to detect and predict equipment faults, to rapidly create dashboards to relate and compare sites, and to leverage a common platform for remote monitoring.
ICONICS was selected due to its compelling alarm management, flexible dashboard creation, fast proof-of-concept delivery, and overall solution value. Early project results have shown reduced energy costs, reduced waste, improved efficiency, lowered carbon footprint, and increased equipment lifetime for the customer’s cement and mining clients worldwide.
