There is a significant opportunity to unlock value in the chemical manufacturing processes using advanced analytics. The plant processes have significant variability from ideal conditions during operations. This variability is captured in significant data assets in the plants which are amenable to analytics using BIG DATA, AI, and other approaches. A combination of data scientists, chemical engineers, IT teams, and plant operations can help to identify and create analytical models that can help to improve yield, quality, throughput, and reduce cost. There are many examples both observed in our own works and in public reports an output improvement to the order of 10%, significant cost savings, and large profitability improvements. Our goal of today's presentation is to provide examples of these success stories, a miniview of the process steps required, and to help chemical engineers to relate to these tools better.
