Their Digitalization Journey
Arkema wanted to build a digital strategy with four specific outcomes: manage industrial performance quickly; position the human role all along the value chain; optimize the asset lifecycle; and develop agility of all assets during production. In short, they wanted to build a “factory of the future.” Because of TrendMiner’s commitment to democratize data for everyone in an organization, Arkema chose it to be a digital partner. One of Arkema’s challenges was the ability to share knowledge with other TrendMiner users throughout one plant or across multiple sites. The specialty materials company sent out surveys to ask users what they needed. With those results, it created a website specifically for all TrendMiner users so they could connect with those more familiar with the software’s capabilities and search for use cases to match their specific situation. Now, with a combination of strategies to help close a mindset gap, process experts at Arkema have fully embraced TrendMiner to make daily data-driven decisions.
Since adopting TrendMiner, Arkema has been able to share use cases for industrial analytics across departments and locations. With TrendMiner, Arkema has been able to:
Optimize production with a wide range of use cases
Improve collaboration among its software uses
Share knowledge about solutions throughout the organization
Demystify industrial analytics for operational experts
Democratize data across its entire organization
In this 2021 TrendLab presentation, Laurent BASEILHAC and Nina MAS SOLER presented Arkema’s vision of the “factory of the future,” and will encourage users to dream big and reach for their goals. For their presentation, Laurent and Nina won the 2021 TrendMiner of the Year award.
Laurent walks you through Arkema’s priorities for digital manufacturing after a brief introduction. Then, Nina shares the company’s strategy for the implementation and adoption of TrendMiner through user network diversity. The session will demonstrate the importance of developing a community strategy to ensure an effective and sustainable digital transformation.
