Challenges organizations face while implementing digital transformation
With the evolution of increasingly self-driven automation systems and the advent of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), companies have constantly progressed towards reducing human interaction in their everyday operations. Operators who were once responsible for manually operating valves and switches, adjusting process parameters, and monitoring safety, now merely keep checks while the plant’s DCS runs everything.
Industrial automation has brought plants to a point where the human element is limited to managing workflows, monitoring production, and reporting. And so, while a plant can work away incessantly, its full potential could remain undiscovered through the inefficient reporting systems still in use by plant personnel.
