PALO ALTO, CALIF. AND PUNE, INDIA (PRWEB) JANUARY 28, 2020
Altizon Inc. today announced that it is working in collaboration with global consulting firm Deloitte to deliver the first-ever digital transformation project of CK Birla group-owned building material solutions company HIL Ltd.
“We believe a connected factory has the ability to significantly improve the production process by enabling end-to-end product visibility. Further, predictive analytics will aid decision making and promote responsiveness,” said Dhirup Roy Choudhary, CEO & MD of HIL Ltd.
Altizon’s Datonis Manufacturing Intelligence (MInt), a cloud-based platform, enables HIL to connect all machines, products and services to a single network and data platform that facilitates machine-to-machine communication. The Datonis MInt manufacturing data lake combines manufacturing product and process data from multiple sources into a single repository to deliver actionable insights. With the pre-built capabilities of MInt and Deloitte’s consulting expertise, HIL’s first Connected Shop Floor has been launched in its Chennai blocks plant.
Today, real-time machine parameters are being captured through digital logbooks, with plant-level dashboards in place to monitor and review critical parameters. Instant alerts will be instrumental in timely corrective actions.
“The connected shop floor is the first step in our IIoT journey. By connecting the entire shop floor, we are ready with real-time data to take corrective decisions. Our next focus is to predict failures in quality and maintenance, which will increase the plant efficiency. We chose Deloitte as our partners on this Industry 4.0 journey, as they come with deep understanding of the building materials industry and rich expertise in digital transformation. Deloitte’s consulting expertise and Altizon’s Datonis MInt platform together is a win-win scenario for us,” said Murali Raj GR, CIO of HIL Limited.
HIL is banking on digitalization and Industry 4.0 to introduce traceability with the aim of reducing defects and improving asset efficiencies at its plant.
“Companies are beginning to understand the massive impact of Industry 4.0 and exponential technologies are fundamentally transforming the business models and processes. Deloitte’s Manufacturing and Digital acceleration solution brings in domain expertise and the ability to identify the data points that needs to be captured and to be processed that can bring in actionable insights at various levels in the organization. As an outcome, what we are seeing is not an incremental benefit but a step jump in all aspects of business including manufacturing cost, quality improvement and process efficiency.
We believe a connected factory has the ability to significantly improve the production process by enabling end-to-end product visibility. Further, predictive analytics will aid decision making and promote responsiveness. For HIL’s Connected Digital Shop Floor engagement we turned to Altizon and the plug-and-play feature of Datonis MInt significantly accelerated HIL’s Connected Shop Floor rollout,” shared Shridhar Kamath, Partner, Deloitte India.
