New industrial automation and control business concept from Yokogawa

12 November 2017

Yokogawa Electric Corporation has announced a new industrial automation and control business concept that expresses the company’s commitment to working with its customers to sustain their creation of corporate values – Synaptic Business Automation.

Manufacturers face a variety of challenges today, ranging from volatile shifts in the price of crude oil and other raw materials and stiffening environmental and safety regulations to structural changes in their industries. To remain competitive, they need to be able to adapt quickly to change.

To guide its efforts to assist companies in meeting such challenges, Yokogawa adheres to a vision that through ‘Process Co-Innovation,’ it is able to create new value with its customers. The aim is to help companies improve efficiency and profitability by bringing together business units to work more effectively and by eliminating barriers that impede the flow of information and goods throughout the supply chain and between companies.

As the Internet of Things (IoT) gains traction, a digitalisation of processes is underway whereby the use of big data and artificial intelligence is yielding valuable insights needed to make business decisions. The Synaptic Business Automation concept expresses Yokogawa’s commitment to using the latest information technologies and its decades of experience with plant management and industrial processes, portfolio of automation solutions, and consulting expertise to help its customers transform their businesses.

Synaptic Business Automation expresses an ideal state for a business whereby the synthesising of data, systems, organisations, knowledge, and supply chains adds value and strengthens competitiveness. The linked data on manufacturing processes, plant operations, human resources, and supply chains can be organised, integrated, controlled, broken down, and analysed to yield insightful decisions at various levels in the organisation, from operations in the field to corporate management. 

Yokogawa has many years of experience in working with operational technology (OT). By combining its in-depth knowledge of plant management, operations, industries, and processes, its portfolio of automation and other information technology solutions, and its consulting expertise, the company is well positioned to create new value. Working together with its customers based on the Co-innovating tomorrow corporate brand slogan, Yokogawa is committed to helping customers achieve the ideals expressed in its Synaptic Business Automation concept.
