Smart services for the digital transformation in mechanical engineering

Business and distribution models are changing rapidly and are further driven by digital transformation. Sulzer’s industry expertise supports you in meeting these major IT challenges.

Exploiting optimisation potential

The pressure to transform the engineering industry is increasing due to rising raw material and labour costs, disrupted supply chains, flexible production and shorter commissioning and maintenance times. Development, production and logistics processes must be further optimised, and products and business models must be redefined in the course of digitalisation.

We know the engineering industry and the trends. We also understand the complexity of processes and products and the challenges they pose.

With tailored IT solutions, we can help you exploit untapped optimisation potential along your entire value chain:

  • Finance
  • Product development and manufacturing
  • Supply chain
  • Project planning and control
  • Procurement and purchasing
  • Maintenance and operation

Data analytics – business boost for your company

The manufacturing industry generates huge amounts of data. But how successfully are you harnessing this mountain of potential intelligence in your business?

New technologies are enabling more accurate analysis at lower cost: Sulzer’s IT solutions collect information from a wide range of data sources and combine it with the benefits of machine learning models and visualisation platforms.

This makes complex interrelationships visible and reveals previously hidden problems – such as hidden bottlenecks or unprofitable production lines.

You too can benefit from our decades of experience in analysis tools and technologies.

Advanced Analytics – the future firmly in sight

Information is the best basis for decision-making processes: Sulzer specifically relies on advanced analytics. This enables you to evaluate large amounts of data with intelligent artificial intelligence methods – such as Deep Learning.

Predictive maintenance – smart maintenance

Through the use of predictive maintenance, we help you to analyse historical performance data of production facilities in order to anticipate and avoid system failures. Downtimes are thus successfully reduced.

Teaching AI to think – recognising and preventing critical operational failures at an early stage

Learn how Sulzer is helping a leading industrial customer use artificial intelligence to reinvent incident and fault management.
