Cognitive Plant Ops Adviser: 8-week Implementation

TCS - Azure

Leveraging the power of TCS IPs and Microsoft Azure to drive Cognitive solutions for Industry Operations

TCS Cognitive Plant Operations (CPO) Adviser, developed by leveraging Microsoft Azure capabilities, helps in rapidly building and deploying cutting-edge digital solutions, and in unlocking the power of knowledge, data, and engineering sciences to make industrial plants intelligent and future-ready. This platform brings together all core elements needed to build intelligent digital twins of not just the plants, systems, and processes but also digital twins of operators through curation and reasoning over the digitally captured domain and tacit knowledge coupled with advanced industry-specific AI algorithms and physics-based models. The built-in capabilities of CPO Adviser help make plant operations predictive, prescriptive, and self-aware with deep causal reasoning, to reduce operations and maintenance costs, improve product quality, reduce emissions, derive additional revenue via increased throughput, and make production lines agile and safe.
