IT/OT convergence can enhance systems' reliability, efficiency, and flexibility, enabling manufacturers to optimise energy usage, reduce costs, and improve sustainability while maintaining operational resilience.'

  • Real-time Monitoring and Control: Enhancing visibility into the performance of systems, enabling operators to detect and respond to issues promptly, optimise energy usage, and minimise downtime.'

  • Predictive Maintenance: Identifying early signs of equipment degradation or failure, allowing maintenance activities to be scheduled proactively, reducing the risk of unplanned downtime and optimising the lifespan of critical assets.'

  • Energy Efficiency Optimisation: Identify opportunities to reduce energy consumption, optimise load distribution, and implement demand-response strategies to lower operating costs and minimise environmental impact.'
