Mongkol Hengrojanasophon, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of SCG Chemicals, said, "SCGC lays tremendous emphasis on implementing digital technologies throughout the supply chain by integrating data technology with operational technology to achieve the next level of operational excellence. Machine learning systems are employed to forecast raw material costs and use optimization models to make efficient machine operation decisions, including a Realtime Performance Management system to quickly obtain information on machine operation, enabling production plan adjustments to be made promptly in response to market conditions. This includes the Digital Reliability Platform (DRP), which holistically oversees machine performance management and enables efficient operation and maintenance of the machine. Furthermore, we have implemented the Digital Commerce Platform (DCP) to increase sales efficiency and speedily respond to customers."
In addition, SCGC promotes green manufacturing through innovation and technology to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate the global warming crisis by encouraging the industry's sustainable coexistence with communities and the environment.
