Industry continues to seek new ways to enhance financial performance. Intelligent Operations is a bold new approach to achieve Operational Excellence (OpEx). It uses digital transformation to optimize production, minimize equipment downtime, enhance human performance, and manage operational risks. To do this, companies need to break down existing departmental, management, cultural, and data management silos.  This presentation will examine the key aspects of Intelligent Operations and explore an approach for implementing a strategy.
