Transform your manufacturing site for peak performance
The Manufacturing Challenge
Operating large manufacturing sites efficiently and sustainably is challenging. Many factors add pressure for onsite teams:
- Increasing operational costs which increases cost per item made
- Limited CAPEX budget
- HVAC issues causing unplanned production downtime
- Heavy reliance on contractors
- Difficulty tracking and improving contractor performance (FM/BMS/M&E)
- Headcount restrictions for energy management and other non-core activities
- Aggressive publicly quoted corporate CO2 reduction goals
- Difficulty identifying best ROI and CO2 reduction projects
- Energy price rises
Building operations teams recognise the potential to achieve site efficiencies and improve environmental performance by optimising existing plant and equipment, yet they lack yet the data, expertise, resources and time to do so.
Smart, simple solutions
CIM’s building analytics solution provides a simple, smart and transparent way to operate large sites at their peak performance.
Our PEAK platform provides a low-risk, low-cost strategy to lift site performance quickly and easily by making smarter use of existing data to optimise HVAC equipment.
- Fast to deploy software as a service
- Delivers speed to value with no upfront costs
- Dedicated 24×7 technical engineering support for every site
- “Best in Class” root-cause detection, analysis and resolution
Optimising manufacturing site performance
PEAK simplifies and accelerates the end-to-end process of fault detection, diagnosis and problem resolution.
- Automatically collects and continuously monitors live and historical building data from your building management system (BMS) and HVAC equipment and sensors including chillers, boilers, air handling units, fan coil units and cooling towers.
- Aggregates this information into a uniform and transparent dataset then applies rules-based algorithms across it, customised for your site, to pinpoint, highlight and prioritise HVAC system and equipment inefficiencies in real-time.
- Our team of mechanical, mechatronic and electrical engineers help you prioritise, understand and implement PEAK’s insights to optimise equipment performance. CIM’s collaborative and transparent end-to-end process helps you achieve faster and smarter outcomes to optimise your site and set a new benchmark in operational and sustainability practices.
“The building management system represented dark data for us. I never had the ability or resources to dive in under the hood. CIM unlocks the data from our BMS and other sources, applies building analytics across it and provides us with the performance and engineering insights we need to implement operational improvements really quickly and without any capital outlay.”
How to enhance your building management system with PEAK
How to optimise manufacturing site performance with building analytics
Ten-steps to ISO50001 Energy Management Standard certification with building analytics
CIM has a proven track record of making smarter use of existing equipment and system data to give you visibility and control over site performance, and deliver ongoing value over the lifetime of your site.
Improve site efficiency to increase profits
On manufacturing sites where profitability is tied to cost per item made, everything needs to operate as reliably and efficiently as possible to reduce operational expenditure and drive down item costs.
PEAK helps you unlock operational and energy savings within six to eight weeks by optimising the efficiency of your HVAC systems, then continuously monitoring and verifying these savings for you.
Achieve environmental commitments and building standards
PEAK helps you meet your corporate sustainability goals and CO2 reduction targets by reducing the carbon footprint of your manufacturing site and improving its environmental performance. You can use PEAK to ensure site compliance with building or energy management standards such as LEED, WELL, GRESB, BREEAM and ISO50001.
Smarter capital expenditure decisions
Capital expenditure decisions should be based on fact-based insights, not manufacturer recommendations. PEAK helps you resolve HVAC issues in real time and ensure optimal equipment performance, leading to longer asset life cycles. Spend less on fixing and replacing non-core equipment and systems to allocate more of your capital expenditure budget to upgrades of critical production equipment instead.
More on efficiency
Faster problem resolution
PEAK makes unplanned site downtime and last minute contractor call-outs a thing of the past. It pinpoints HVAC faults in real-time and helps you resolve them quickly before they start affecting site productivity.
Greater team collaboration and accountability
PEAK’s live fault dashboard creates transparent workflows with BMS and maintenance contractors so you can manage and track performance. Our customer success team of engineers work with you to ensure your contractors are adding value where and when it is needed most.
Improved thermal comfort
Indoor comfort levels can directly impact site productivity and performance. PEAK identifies the necessary HVAC requirements to deliver the ideal thermal comfort for onsite personnel and reduce hot and cold complaints.
