Remote Plant Performance Operation and Remote Consulting (Digital Twin)

The Digital Twin is consulting combined with cloud-based simulation and production performance monitoring (planning vs. estimation vs. actual values) that can be managed remotely by KBC consultants. Based on the performance, we periodically review, advise, and recommend countermeasures to improve the production performance.
