Presentation from the Sigmafine Summit in Milan, Otober 18, 2018.
Versalis, the ENI chemical company, decided to implement a corporate wide initiative to digitalize the MES infrastructure to support management decision making. Sigmafine and the PI System have been the cornerstone technologies building the foundation for production data conditioning and processing. The solution has been deployed on several sites including chemicals facilities in Italy and abroad leading standardization of business processes all across the company. The result is an acceleration of the pace in the decision making from a month end overview to daily updates. This is the first step on a path of continuous improvement: ENI versalis vision is going to leverage existing technological assets based on Sigmafine and PI System to achieve near-real time processing of information with a model and data driven mixed approach, to ensure only properly conditioned data are processed by predictive algorithms.
