Digital Mill Operations

Today’s economic environment requires paper producers to make continuous efforts to improve their mill operations, while increasing production efficiency and product quality. To a great extent, the productivity of a paper mill depends on its management having a clear view of actual performance levels. Since mill performance is a result of several factors interacting within a complex industrial environment, performance maximization requires a deep understanding of production flows, the transparency of the manufacturing process and efficient tools for tracking production, measuring quality and optimizing the use of capacity, materials and energy. Both day-to-day decision making and planning for the future require that the right information is easily available and presented in an understandable format. ABB Ability is our unified digital capability providing vertical integration of assets from device to the cloud and horizontal integration of order to cash process, from tissue/paper machine through the converting to the shipment of final goods. ABB will present their solution for Digital Mill Operations with customer cases.
