Today facilities are designed and built for specific purposes with specific services in mind. Manufacturing, business, tourism and shopping complexes, power plants, health or educational institutions, transportation and logistics facilities and data centers serve different needs and are managed by different processes. Most contemporary facilities have become 24/7 available and dependent on high-level IT infrastructure in order to adapt to contemporary life and economic conditions. Current facilities without modern infrastructure will have to go through this digital transformation phase in order to sustain their assets. Smart Facilities are becoming increasingly dependent on information technologies.
The facilities with their IT dependent infrastructure host and support the product and service value chain and are accountable for their sustainable business continuity and productivity. Any downtime of the infrastructure service may impact the value chain and cause irrecoverable loss such as loss of prestige.
As Otomatica Experts, we support all infrastructures across all industries to ensure the sustainability of product and service value chains, by focusing on end-to-end digitization of critical facilities. We are confident that we will facilitate the efficient and effective usage of facility assets and resources, including the staff operating the critical facilities, and ensure high performance.
Critical Facility Management Systems’ infrastructure starts in basic level with monitoring through dynamic blocks diagrams, distribution and process-instrumentation illustrations and event-alarm systems. But they extend to integration with enterprise management and process management systems aligned with sustainable operating principles to achieve the facility digitalization. Furthermore, digital twins at the system level, decision making systems, various management and diagnostics screens, event-alarm-maintenance management systems enhance the availability of the facility infrastructure hence the value chain productivity.
