Digitalization for sustainable operations. This presentation will discuss digitalization for sustainability, discuss the hype cycle for AI/ML lead initiatives, and provide a road map for real-world actions. Actions must include a bottom-up approach to delivering sustainable value and return on investment for a tactical realization of your organization’s ESG sustainability goals. A case study will show how a digitalized reliability initiative improved asset availability by 25% and reduced flaring by more than 80% over the past five years.

Author Bio: 

David Armstrong merges field-proven capabilities with the practical experience of building digital asset management systems with leading transformative change. He has helped asset owner/ operators for 25-plus years from the ground floor up to achieve significant results in the areas of operational and reliability excellence, investments and engineer-procure-construct, enterprise configuration management, and asset performance management. This puts him in the ideal position to pull through a cohesive solution to integrate engineering, operations, and maintenance across the complete asset lifecycle. David joined Cohesive—a digital integration organization and wholly owned subsidiary of Bentley Systems—in January of 2022 after 11 years successful years within Bentley Systems’ asset performance team. David holds a master’s Certification in Enterprise Configuration Management from the University of Phoenix. He is an Aladon RCM2 Practitioner, Six Sigma Blackbelt, and PMP that pairs certifications with practical battle scars from running cultural change management initiatives within the following asset-intensive industries: heavy industry steel, O&G, water and power utilities, and mining. Typically, he challenges his projects to drive out costly variation by understanding the contributing root cause data points that not only determine the right strategies at the right time, but also enable actionable results within the evolving science of data analytics. He is passionate about deriving maximum results from the circular economy, and fostering discussions on socially responsible projects and inclusive societal systems and programs, supported by digital enabling solutions.
