How Process Manufacturers are Boosting Flexibility & Scalability

December 8, 2020 | 10:00 AM (CET)


New standards and technologies are helping manufacturers thrive – even during volatile market conditions.

Process manufacturers pilot and scale production by reengineering their plants with an emphasis on increased capacity. While this has met the historic demand for throughput increases, it doesn’t reflect today’s pressures to be more agile, flexible, and resilient. Manufacturers must be able to quickly adapt – sometimes quite significantly – to meet changes in demand or logistical disruptions.

NA-MUR’s open standard, Module Type Package (MTP), is a game changer for agile scalability. MTP enables automation of process modules – boosting production flexibility, and improving:

  • Project engineering loads
  • Time to operational readiness
  • Cost of pilot plant setup
  • Time to market

These benefits can be further amplified with IIoT-enabled process orchestration. By using IIoT data to orchestrate processes, manufacturers are becoming more flexible, scalable, and resilient – attributes that are more important than ever during today’s turbulent market conditions.

Join presenters from ARC Advisory Group, Evonik and PTC as they discuss the MTP standard, the role of IIoT in process orchestration, and the experience of Evonik, who leveraged this approach to vastly improve both scalability and flexibility as a major chemical manufacturer.
