Achieving full potential requires constant expert attention

In the today’s operating environment, it has become increasingly difficult to maximize the potential of process units:

  • Market volatility requires more flexible and agile operations
  • Decision making relies on accurate and timely information, plus exact models of the facility
  • Loss of expertise as an ageing workforce approaches retirement makes it harder to respond to pressing issues
  • The challenge of recruiting a new generation with different aspirations means that turnover is increasing and experience is lacking

All of this contributes to increased difficulty in achieving plans and targets, as well as maintaining profitability and competitiveness. 

The KBC Co-Pilot is here to help. KBC's experts come from the industry and have decades of practical experience. Our simulation technology is the best in the world for modeling complex process operations.

Digital twin of your facility: Models always up to date, experts always available

Co-Pilot creates a live digital twin of your process facility in the Cloud, using KBC’s IIoT and simulation technology. This live digital twin is then available through the Co-Pilot dashboard for KBC experts and your key stakeholders. This allows facility management and engineering teams to clearly see and understand performance and, in collaboration with KBC experts anywhere in the world, to identify opportunities for further improvement.

Once changes are agreed and acted upon, Co-Pilot tracks economic improvement against a base case established at the Co-Pilot kick-off.
