Key processes within Water & Wastewater operations can now be digitized. This is good news, especially for an industry under pressure to both lower OpEx and manage an aging workforce. Trends such as the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), cloud computing and “edge” control are emerging as technology engines that present cost-effective options for modernizing operations. When it comes to OpEx reduction, however, technology is what enables plant workers to make the biggest savings impact. It’s estimated that digitization of core Water & Wastewater plant operational processes can generate 20-40% in cost savings.
This paper provides guidance on how the workforce can be empowered in this new digitized world to drive new levels of operational efficiency.
