What is Digital Transformation?

Applying digital technologies can empower people, optimize processes, and automate organizations' systems for business performance improvements as a business strategy. Technologies include cloud, artificial intelligence, wireless sensors, robotics, industrial automation and IT/OT integration.

Industrial Applications of Digital Transformation and Industrial IoT Solutions:

  • Operations Optimization
  • Predictive Maintenance
  • Health and Safety
  • Human Productivity

Scope of Smart Manufacturing Solutions:

  • Production
  • Manufacturing

Benefits of a Digital Transformation:

Yokogawa designs Digital Transformation (DX) around your current and prospective business processes, human element, and tech. Digitization and industrial IoT services are necessities in the present and future of operations.



Plants increasingly are turning to machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) to recognize precise patterns in sensor data. The technologies ease differentiating between normal and abnormal equipment behavior and also detecting specific patterns that lead up to failures — and, so, enhance capabilities for predictive maintenance.

Read this report to learn how more insightful data and better analyses can boost uptime.


Traditional refinery optimization tools that rely on bulk properties are limited in fully achieving the objectives of molecular management.

Key objectives of molecular management are maximizing high-value products and replacing expensive feedstocks with low value streams.
