In cement factories, the several interlinked production steps are monitored by automated systems. They provide the production team with a large set of data that is then used to derive . required actions for an efficient operation. Up to now, data from different monitoring systems has been collected and processed manually. This made collaboration and exchange very difficult and led to a bias towards experience-driven decisions rather than concise data analysis. Another hurdle: each plant used different systems, and action management tools making direct comparisons of factories impossible.
PACT supports the plant teams to take better, data-based and more forward-thinking decisions, consistently achieve targets and spend less time in meetings and data crunching. This allows the teams to focus more on optimizing the processes and adapting in a flexible way to requirements from the markets.
PACT is the Holcim platform that combines all aspects of business with production, maintenance, quality, environment as well as H&S data from plants worldwide. This data is used for data-based decision making, benchmarking, consistent action tracking and as basis for machine learning applications that scale globally, such as CemQ.
PACT is currently available on 4 continents and used in 80+ cement plants.
Roll-out is ongoing to cover the full cement industrial footprint of Holcim.
