Smart plant


In the modern smart factory, data and analytics enable machines and people to make intelligent, fact-based decisions that increase performance efficiency and customer centricity, through both autonomous activities and human action.

Digitalization is a powerful force for change as manufacturers seek to boost their operational excellence, production efficiency, and sustainability. With new challenges around shifts in consumer preferences towards made-to-order or mass-customized products, and massive connected industry disruptions, such as electrification and autonomous vehicles, manufacturers are undergoing major transformation.

We bring to life transformative Smart Plant solutions that have positive environmental and social impact. These embrace digitalization, smart modular technology, data, and analytics to ensure long term financial benefits for our clients in:

Discrete manufacturing
Process industries
Complex infrastructures

We use digitalization and AI in industry to create economic value and increase the happiness, health, and safety of employees.

“While 80% of manufacturers accelerate their smart plant transformation with increased investments as they recognize OEE benefits or higher flexibility in their production, 60% are meeting difficulties in scaling digital solutions on their brownfields. Data readiness, IT/OT convergence, solution mastery, and change management are slowing them down. Greenfield projects become a great opportunity to drive efficiency by design and propel the power of smart plant to their global production network”
