Abstract

An innovative management model for cement and building mixtures manufacturing enterprise is presented on the basis of a specialized digital solution, with the help of which a company can increase its competitiveness due to an increase in labor productivity, by improving the quality of products, reducing costs and increasing the economic efficiency of the business. The approach is based on the implementation of interrelated regulated processes, digital tools and methods of real-time data processing, as well as on the creation of an enterprise management information system — MES — for the systematic collection, analysis and storage of information with the ability to manage production and supporting processes, resources, plans and other aspects of production. The article also shows the growth keypoints typical for a cement plant (intelligent control of equipment operating modes and energy efficiency, maintenance and repair processes, warehouse accounting, procurement, logistics, etc.), as well as specific effects achieved with the help of the MES, including the reduction of accidents and repair costs, reduction of downtime, cost optimization, increase in productivity, economical consumption of energy carriers, etc. The approach has been successfully applied in practice. Working prototypes of the described solution were created and put into commercial operation at four Russian enterprises producing cement using the “dry” method.
