Ready-mixed concrete is a composite, semi-finished product created by combining more than one raw material. It is a semi-finished product, and its physical and chemical properties change over time. Estimating the final features requires serious knowledge and experience. Although the standards reveal some assumptions, continuous raw material and product quality monitoring are necessary due to the variability of the raw materials. High variability makes it hard to assess the quality at the time of mixing. Algorithms developed with Optimix enable customers to make these evaluations quickly and easily.
By bringing the latest technology and artificial intelligence to concrete plants, Optimix creates cost advantages and productivity increases.
Thanks to the artificial intelligence algorithms specially developed for your plants, Optimix predicts the final strength while producing the fresh concrete, and as soon as the samples are broken. If the estimation results are interpreted, it is seen that recipe changes can be made earlier by the support of Optimix’s predictions. Thus, it is possible for companies interpreting final strength results to revise their designs earlier. The accuracy of the strength predictions is quite high thanks to artificial intelligence algorithms that are constantly learning and developing.
Digitization of all quality control processes enables company units to access data transparently whenever they wish. This simplifies multi-site management. In this way, companies can quickly and safely integrate quality and optimization management into different power plants. Facilities in various regions with different dynamics are also able to produce their own optimum concrete thanks to the Optimix and increase the efficiency and better corporate culture.
All historical quality control data is kept in the cloud system. Cloud-based databases make it easy for customers to access all current and historical data from wherever they are. Thanks to the dynamic screens, data from IoT or any other type of source can still be properly and safely integrated to the cloud system and monitored on the screens. In summary, Optimix initiates the end-to-end digitalization process of companies and contributes to their digital transformation. Dozens of idle and extinct data types are now kept regularly and all of them can be evaluated for artificial intelligence models.
The changes in raw material and other expense items can be monitored on Optimix screens so cost analyzes can be made easily. With the Optimix’s recipe design scenario tool, cost vs strength analysis can be made for new recipes and quickly and accurately pricing is possible.
All changes made in the application are recorded. Thanks to cloud systems, data is kept in ultra-secure conditions. The entire database keeps backups regularly. Systematic controls on the obtained data are designed. Optimix monitors the data with the designed controls and regularly informs about the deficiencies via e-mail. This leads better data management and quality.
Concrete production is a process that is constantly monitored, requires regular recipe revisions and is subject to certain quality standards. Thanks to smart algorithms that predict concrete’s final strength from an early period, it is possible to prevent possible low quality or possible high-cost concrete production. Early warning systems reduce deviations and allow the production at sufficient quality continuously.
