We are pleased to announce that PotlatchDeltic has selected BID Group’s OPER8™ as its Industrial IoT (‘IIoT’) Solutions Platform. OPER8™ was chosen through a competitive process that included several strong Industrial IoT competitors.
OPER8™ is the only purpose-built IIoT solution for the Wood Processing Industry. Wrapping around and extending through new and legacy equipment, technologies, and systems, OPER8™ was designed for rapid implementation to provide a “single pane of glass” view into all aspects of operational performance. OPER8™ leverages the 35+ years of BID’s deep industry-specific knowledge of equipment, technologies, and business processes.
Deploying OPER8™ across all Sawmill and Plywood facilities is a key element in the digital transformation journey ensuring PotlatchDeltic continues to defend and expand its competitive advantage in the marketplace.
The OPER8™ implementation will be a sequential roll-out beginning with Bemidji, MN in early 2021. This will include a connection to BID-supplied sensors to drive predictive analytics that yield unsurpassed insights and reliability to optimize their asset life cycle management and overall financial performance.
