Elevate your plant performance to new levels

IBM Plant Advisor is a Cloud Service offering that uses insights from plant floor data to optimize the performance of process manufacturing plants. It employs advanced machine learning techniques to learn continuously from data generated by plant processes to predict inefficiencies and advise the operators on the right control set point that would maximize throughput while reducing cost and optimizing quality. Plant Advisor surfaces up previously hidden relationships and potential for process improvements and could save millions of dollars each year.

Predict plant performance variations

Deploy advanced machine learning to predict performance variations before they happen and proactively initiate a remedy.

Get best-fit operating parameters

Let optimization algorithms prescribe the best-fit operating set points for control parameters based on historic data and expert objective models.

Analyze process inefficiencies

Determine the probable causes that adversely impact throughput, cost and quality by baselining and comparing process variables and predictions from different assets and processes.

Optimize plant throughput and cost

Choose the KPIs that need to be optimized. Then choose quality as your most important criteria by defining a narrow tolerance even if it takes more energy—or energy can be the primary concern.

Reduce cost year after year

Consistently reduce energy costs from less than 1% to 15% based on the level of variances the plant experiences.

Accelerate time to value with SaaS

Built-in analytical models offered as SaaS allow you to avoid costly infrastructure cost and gain quick momentum for your project.
