The AFPM Summit is the only conference for the petroleum refining and petrochemical industries that is focused on improving plant-wide performance. Themes throughout the conference will highlight emerging technologies, process safety, improved reliability and operations, mechanical integrity, training, leadership, and culture.
Yokogawa will conduct a virtual presentation about how digital transformation is becoming a priority with many organizations. The presentation will focus on how established and emerging technology developments are integrating in order to enable companies to digitize their enterprise and transform both the way they operate internally and interact with their value chain partners. Expected benefits of digital transformation include lower operating costs, reduced unscheduled downtime, higher efficiency, and improved internal and external collaboration. Some core digital enabling technologies include the IIoT, wireless smart sensors, artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML), cloud platforms, big data and analytics, digital twins, robotics, and drones
