Enterprise Control is the synchronization of business strategy with production execution – in real-time. This means that we can apply the principles of optimization to a business, while operating within a set of interrelated constraints. Enterprise Control weaves the fabric for this synchronization, by supporting the alignment of all of the Operational Excellence areas – Environment and Safety, People, Asset and Control, with a strong emphasis on empowering your most critical asset – your people.
The Enterprise Control journey typically begins with the implementation of real-time business intelligence, providing real-time business measurements that are effectively visualized and made available to every key function in the organization. The next step is to bring critical business variables under automatic control within each plant and across the industrial enterprise. This automated approach is critical in addressing business variables which fluctuate so rapidly that they are difficult for operators to control manually.
Once these automatic business control loops are implemented, your organization can move to the final leg of the journey – real-time business optimization.
