Smart Water-Management Strategies: The Time is Now

By Jurgen Engert, Schneider Electric |

Considering water-management strategies as a central component of infrastructure design at industrial facilities will unlock cost savings throughout the operation Mounting water shortages and resulting regulations across the globe are fueling the need for seamless and smarter water-management methods — particularly in industrial manufacturing environments where water usage, treatment and disposal is a critical part of all processes. In these settings, water control and management should not be isolated or treated as an afterthought, but rather included in plant infrastructure strategies from the onset. If water quality is poor, it compromises everything that follows, and can also affect the life expectancy of a plant’s water systems, product quality and overall infrastructure. A strategy is needed that thinks beyond SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) systems to render all aspects of an industrial facility viewable as a single pane of glass, enabling manufacturers to access all information in one place for a “smarter” approach to water and product management. Achieving a smarter water-management strategy requires addressing some key industry challenges, such as aging and failing infrastructure, tightening regulations,…
