Palo Alto based Industrial IoT specialist Altizon Inc is working with the Indian subsidiary of French drinks company Pernod Ricard to build their first IIoT led Digital Factory project.

Altizon’s Datonis Digital Factory is a cloud-based smart manufacturing platform that applies advanced analytics and machine learning algorithms to accelerate smart manufacturing initiatives and modernise asset performance management.

Applying Datonis Digital Factory to the operations of Pernod Ricard India (PRI) has allowed that company to connect data from their physical assets, spread across multiple locations and enterprise systems onto a single platform. Pernod Ricard India has connected four of their multiple bottling units in India. Multi-level dashboards are in place to monitor and review critical parameters.

“We believe the digitisation of our manufacturing has the potential to accelerate sustainable and tangible benefits. These benefits include, improving the overall capacity utilisation, manpower productivity and product quality by enabling end-to-end visibility of our manufacturing operations,” said S Srinivasan, AVP-Manufacturing, of PRI.

“With the enablement of this digital capability around the IIoT platform, we have laid the foundation of our Smart Factory blueprint. The implementation of this first successful use case has demonstrated the potential impact this could have in improving productivity. Technology augmented with right processes and capability drives meaningful action, which is what we expect to see in coming months, as we extend this to other manufacturing units. Altizon’s products, best practices and experience, coupled with PRI’s strong IT and operations teams, have led to the success,” said Debanjan Banerjee, CIO of PRI.

“PRI is an industry leader with a global footprint, and it has been a pleasure partnering with them on accelerating their digital transformation journey. We look forward to building on this success and working with PRI in realising their Digital Factory vision,” said Vinay Nathan, CEO of Altizon.

Altizon has been developing digital factory initiatives in Industry 4.0 across a range of industry verticals, including automotive, tyre, CPG, chemicals and remote industrial assets.
