Webinar: Accelerate the pace of digital transformation for the Chemical Industry
Chemical enterprises have historically been slow to change, focusing on their core business rather than risk disruptive behavior. In fact, some companies have yet to fully realize Industry 3.0. All companies need to take measures not to be left behind by not recognizing or responding to the pressures of digitalization.
The expected benefits for the chemical industry from the digital transformation are additional revenue and cost reductions. For some companies, the challenge is to change their cultures to be more digital in their mindsets - a change from the sale-volume focus to embracing how to expand revenue opportunities with digitalization. The lack of the digital thinking and having the staff trained in that view means that companies must look for opportunities to leverage their current culture in the short-term and take those first steps in the digital journey to improve manufacturing operations, targeting asset efficiency and reducing costs to improve operating margins.
Is there a starting point for manufacturer than can begin to deliver value to operations in the early stages for the digital transformation? Advanced scheduling is an application worth serious consideration for its role in the digital enterprise and its proven return-on-value.
Join Greg Quinn, CEO of Quinn & Associates and Duane Morelli, Vice-President of Quinn & Associates, as they discuss how chemical enterprises can meet today’s challenges and begin the digital journey. You will gain insight into entry points in the digital enterprise to maintain a competitive advantage.
