In Chapter 2, the ProcIndustries South Texas refinery digital transformation team is formed, focusing on operational excellence. The team plans for implementation of the enterprise industrial data infrastructure (EIDI), using Six Sigma methodologies in a continuous-process improvement program. Rather than focusing on the technology, the team reviews current workflows, how data is stored and consumed by refinery personnel, and how refinery operations can be continuously improved by addressing all functional areas, including safety and environmental issues, management reporting, and increasing visibility to all workers. The team unveils their plans for how various refinery and corporate teams will access and share the information to improve operations and reduce costs. This chapter also introduces how other ProcIndustries refineries and corporate support teams will ultimately benefit from an EIDI implementation.
