To keep Anglo American Platinum’s equipment running and to maintain ingot quality assurance, the company used to collect operations data manually. It required many man-hours to extract relevant data from spreadsheets.
As part of their digital transformation, the company created a platform to access up-to-date ingot and equipment life-cycle information to eliminate the manual process. The PI System gave Anglo American Platinum visibility into their manual process, allowing them to track each step of production. By capturing critical process events, the company saved around 400 hours of additional development time.
