Strategic insight: How Octopus Digital reshaped client operations in the chemicals industry

The Customer

Our client has been a trailblazer in Pakistan’s Polyester Industry, leading the way with Staple Fiber (PSF) technology. It has been in business for over 75 years in various industries such Polyester, Soda Ash, Chemicals & Agri Sciences, Pharmaceuticals and Animal Health.

The Challenge

The client was grappled with disparate platforms for quality and process data, hindering a swift overview and reliance on non-standard metrics, particularly for Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE). Manual efforts were required for interlinkages, impeding efficiency and comprehensive performance analysis.

Despite their industry prominence, it encountered a critical hurdle in managing quality and process data, leading to inefficiencies in obtaining a comprehensive overview.

The Solution

This challenge prompted the need for a solution to seamlessly integrate Operational Technology (OT) and Information Technology (IT) data, setting the stage for Octopus Digital’s transformative intervention. In response, Octopus Digital provided a cloud-based analytics solution called OmniConnect— A cloud-native IT/OT convergence platform that was
able to collect, transform, enrich, access, and analyze our clients disparate manufacturing data in real time for actionable insights to drive and improve business and performance outcomes.
