To sustain growth and commercial viability, plant operations must have information management systems with enhanced decision support capabilities to facilitate global design, production and lifecycle optimization. Today’s challenge is sustainability in the market, which means:

  1. Operational efficiency is critical and to achieve this, a manufacturer must gain control over the very valuable process information asset to optimize the product manufacturing process.
  2. The manufacturer must capture and analyze the necessary information to build and operate a plant in record time which contributes to reduced time-to-market and an optimized supply chain.

RAI’s information management team has experience with the best-in-class systems and software. From concept and design through operations, maintenance and decommission, our goal is to maximize a plant’s efficiency. Our experienced information management teams specialize in integrating information beyond the physical asset, processes and regulatory/safety imperative.

This experience provides the manufacturer with the best available deliverables, to include:

Optimized information models
Information collection and archiving architectures
Real-time and Historical data collection system designs
Data evaluation and decision engine design
Plant efficiency models to manage production goals and operational excellence through better engineering data management
