Smart Factories have become the common tools deployed throughout the cement industry.
As plant managers employ more automation technologies, the implementation of more connected devices can lead to information security and personnel safety concerns.
Faststream’s IoT solutions provide significant value in cost reduction, increased efficiency, and greater visibility for all aspects of the business.
Along with the benefits of the IoT infrastructure, there are significant security concerns and challenges present in the deployment of this new technology.Recent implementations of Our IoT solutions have shown a significant gap between actual application and best practices, saving an organization’s risks such as sensitive data exhilaration, and maliciousness.
Cement companies, too, can profit from digital transformation which helps tackle the challenges facing the industry e.g. demand for increased productivity, efficiency, optimization and lifecycle time. Faststream’s digital transformation solutions not only facilitate raw material and energy savings of up to 20%, they simultaneously ensure highest quality.
Our Offerings in Cement Industry Using Industry 4.0
Faststream Technologies IoT enabled machinery solutions can transmit operational information to the partners like original equipment manufacturers and to field engineers to enable operation managers and factory heads to remotely manage the factory units and take advantage of process automation and optimization.
Faststream’s IoT Sensors can actively monitor machines and send an alert when the equipment deviates from its prescribed parameters. By ensuring the prescribed working environment for machinery, manufacturers can conserve energy, reduce costs, eliminate machine downtime and increase operational efficiency.
Production flow monitoring:
Faststream Technologies IoT gateway can enable the monitoring of production lines starting from the refining process down to the packaging of final products to recommend adjustments in operations for better management of operational cost.
Faststream’s IoT applications permit the monitoring of events across a supply chain. Using our gateway systems, the inventory is tracked and traced globally on a line-item level and the users are notified of any significant deviations from the plans.
Plant Safety and Security:
Our Smart Factory solution combined with big data analysis can improve the overall workers’ safety and security in the plant. By monitoring the Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) of health and safety, like the number of injuries and illness rates, near-misses, short- and long-term absences, vehicle incidents and property damage or loss during daily operations.
The IoT sensors from Faststream Technologies collect aggregate product data and other third-party syndicated data from various stages of a product cycle. This data relates to the composition of raw materials used, temperature and working environment, wastes, the impact of transportation etc. on the final products.
Using our Smart Factory solution in products and/or packaging, manufacturers can gain insights into the usage patterns and handling of products from multiple customers. Smart tracking mechanisms of Faststream can also trace product deterioration during transit and impact of weather, road and other environment variables on the product.
Logistics and Supply Chain Optimization:
Faststream’s Software Platform delivers IoT smart factory solutions which can provide access to real-time supply chain information by tracking materials, equipment, and products as they move through the supply chain. Effective reporting enables manufacturers to collect and feed delivery information into ERP, PLM and other systems. By connecting plants to suppliers, all the parties concerned with the supply chain can trace interdependencies, material flow and manufacturing cycle times.
