Nova Chemicals has selected Pavilion’s Model Predictive Intelligence technology as a key component of its manufacturing excellence program.
After the two companies formed a strategic alliance in 2004, Nova Chemicals has been implementing Pavilion’s advanced process control (APC) chemical and polymer solutions at all of its manufacturing sites. According to Pavilion, its Model Predictive Intelligence (MPI) technology complements Nova Chemicals’ implementation of APC by allowing the same models used in advanced process control to be leveraged for operations and business performance management.
Based on the success of our initial partnership with Pavilion, we are pleased to extend our collaboration to include predictive analytics, said Bill Greene, vice president of manufacturing olefins/polyolefins at Nova Chemicals. The operational efficiencies gained by proactive decision making will help continually enhance reliability, reduce costs and improve cash flow cycle time.
