ABB Ability™ Data Analyঞcs Plaorm is a new digital soluঞon for iron, steel and other metals manufacturing customers that helps customers to visualise every single piece of data across the value chain, so they can make real ঞme decisions on planning and plant wide operaঞons. ABB Ability™ Data Analyঞcs collects, analyses and visualises data from a variety of subsystems and devices within a metals plant, harnessing large volumes of complex data and integraঞng Operaঞng Technology (OT) and Informaঞon Technology (IT) in one single plaorm. Fully scalable, secure and vendor neutral, it can be connected to any ABB or third-party systems and devices. By breaking down data silos and increasing informaঞon transparency ABB Ability™ Data Analyঞcs Plaorm helps customers take the essenঞal steps towards realising fully digitalised plants. Specific features provide customers with an integrated view of operaঞons in real-ঞme via powerful, high resoluঞon dashboards. With either on-premises or cloud connecঞvity, this centralised plaorm soluঞon allows for beer planning and process control through the conঞnuous monitoring of producঞon data, downঞme, and movement of heats and raw materials as examples. Analysis of complex, large data across ABB launches new digital solutions suite for metals produces ABB Ability™ Data Analycs Plaorm dashboard for opmisaon of byproduct gases and ulies consumpon ঞme-frames and faciliঞes provides opportuniঞes for improving quality, idenঞfying bolenecks and opঞmizing the plant-wide resourcing of uঞliঞes, byproduct gases and producঞon. It can be used when applying new technologies such as machine learning, or to opঞmise specific process areas such as cold rolling and long product mills. "Due to global compeঞঞon metals manufacturers are under constant pressure to find new and improved ways to enhance their operaঞons and reduce costs. More powerful tools are needed to monitor operaঞons, idenঞfy and diagnose current problems, and predict new ones before they cause bolenecks, unplanned downঞme or unnecessary use of resources such as uঞliঞes, energy and assets," said Tarun Mathur, Global Product Manager for Metals Digital at ABB. "ABB Ability™ Data Analyঞcs Plaorm for metals offers customised KPIs based on organizaঞonal access levels to allow the customer to get the right informaঞon to the right people at the right ঞme to beer diagnose product, system and process issues, make data-driven decisions and reach unprecedented levels of opঞmizaঞon." ABB is a technology leader focused in digital industries and ABB Ability™ is a unified, cross-industry digital offering — extending from device to edge to cloud — with devices, systems, soluঞons, services and a plaorm that enable our customers to know more, do more, do beer, together. ABB Ability™ Data Analyঞcs Plaorm is one of several soluঞons created for iron, steel and other metals manufacturers that leverage the power of the ABB Ability™ common technology plaorm and reflect the deep domain experঞse and process knowledge at ABB. It collects data in real-ঞme from a variety of automaঞon systems and devices using OPC and Modbus and is an extensible analyঞcal engine interface with analyঞcs tools such as R, MATLAB capable of modelling, diagnosing and predicঞng.
