Animated by Alain Pellegrino, Vice President, Industrial Reliability Solutions

Your mission, if you accept it, is to increase your plant's overall efficiency, in a responsible and safe manner, in an environment of skilled labour shortage.

Mission impossible? Is digital transformation (Industry 4.0) part of the solution?

The goal of digital transformation is to increase the reliability and productivity of your plant, thus impacting your company's profits. It has been proven that a reliable plant operates at a lower cost, while significantly reducing the risk of work accidents. The objective of this roundtable is to share what is currently being done in the pulp and paper industry, the good moves and possible pitfalls, in order to identify opportunities that will have a significant impact on your operations and contribute to the achievement of your mission.
