JK Tyre and Industries Ltd, India’s leading tyre manufacturer announced its collaboration with Altizon Systems, a global industrial IIoT (Industrial IoT) platform company. JK Tyre is using Altizon’s Datonis Manufacturing Intelligence platform to drive the company’s enterprise digital transformation.
Objectives: Bring Visibility and Predictability into Manufacturing Value Chain
JK Tyre wanted to digitalize and IoT-enable its plant assets with the objectives of bringing visibility and predictability into its manufacturing value chain, improving asset utilization and reducing conversion cost per unit of production. They wanted to implement a solution that was adaptable, reliable and scalable across their multiple manufacturing plants.
The Solution: Securely Connecting and Processing IoT data at Scale
Altizon’s Datonis Manufacturing Intelligence Platform enabled JK Tyre to securely connect and process IoT data at scale. The solution has provided the company with a 360-degree view of the line from productivity, quality, energy, maintenance and traceability perspective. Altizon’s Datonis Manufacturing Intelligence Platform delivers the ability to analyse and visualize operational data in real-time, integrate IoT data into business applications and help enterprises make optimal decisions and pre-empt uncertainties in operations.
JK Tyre was able to significantly reduce mean time to repair, eliminate unplanned machine downtimes, improve productivity, decrease the cost of spares and the cost of energy consumed per unit of production. Scaling the solution to multiple plants will enable JK Tyre to realize real time internal benchmarking of their critical assets and further improve performance.
