Connected Workers: Why your workforce won’t be replaced by automation
Automation and robotics in operations are on the rise and the biggest fear for workers is...
The energy industries traditionally invested heavily in technologies that contributed to improving equipment availability, efficiencies, and capacities. Very little investment was made in improving human performance and retaining knowledge.
Human error is the leading cause of accidents in this industry with lost opportunity running in to hundreds of millions, often caused deficiencies in operational procedures is the key issue identified. In the current market conditions and uncertain futures, for ensuring competitive advantage and retaining market leadership, it is high time to invest in connected worker solutions.
AcceleratorKMS solution is key component of the digital triplet strategy that is critical for ensuring economic, safe, reliable and repeatable operations. On demand information access at point of need, content reuse and standardization form the basic foundations of the solution. AcceleratorKMS leverages the investments already made in infrastructure such as handheld devices and field connectivity and seamlessly integrate with other applications in your operations ecosystem.
Food and Pharmaceutical manufacturing industries operate under the most stringent processes and regulations. The local and federal governing bodies ensure strict compliance for industry best practices and applicable rules. Did you know that 43.6% of all food recalls in 2016 were due to undeclared allergens per U.S. FDA’s reportable food registry fifth annual report?. The true reason for these recalls was root caused to either an SOP that did not exist or was inadequate. When put in economic perspective, studies show that the allergen-related SOP recalls are estimated to be at USD 10 million per recall.
AcceleratorKMS will assist in ensuring food safety and HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) plan compliance and associated regulatory requirements. The solution ensures good manufacturing practices are followed and provides digital trail to tracing various batches easily in the event of a recall. Additionally, SOP status tracking provides real-time insights into various batches.
Consumer products industry is in crossroads with challenges mounting from multiple dimensions such as changing consumer demands, shrinking profit margins, increased compliance and regulatory requirements, globalization and challenges with data visibility. To make things worse, there is high turnover in workforce, increased training costs and high regulatory compliance related expenses.
Automation and ability to attract and retain top talent will ensure consumer products industry be more efficient and potentially save time and money. AcceleratorKMS assists in ensuring standardization of work across production lines and facilities via our patented Accelerator Templating procedures/job instructions development mechanism. This will help in reducing training costs across facilities and democratize learnings seamlessly. Additionally, collaborative and digital job plan executions will ensure productivity increase via real-time centralized status tracking, regulatory and compliance records being available on demand at no additional operational expenditure or subject matter expert’s time.
Create smart electronic procedures and ensure best practices for hazardous chemicals, ventilation, product handling, spill containment, waste management and more.
AcceleratorKMS is preventing environmental impacts, rises in insurance premiums, lost time and revenue, and equipment failure. These issues can critically impact the business after only one incident. A robust digital knowledge ecosystem accessible at the point of need ensures tasks are done right the first time, to protect your organization from information-caused incidents.
AcceleratorKMS ensures workers are supported with the best, most up-to-date content available and have an easy and reliable method for contributing to continuous improvement in their operation.
The power generation and utilities industry is characterized by low margins, increased competition, diversification, and increasing changes in power demands. While studies show that power organizations are facing slow growth and increased competitiveness between players, operational costs can be cut even when pressure is on to reduce prices by using a Knowledge Management System like AcceleratorKMS.
AcceleratorKMS and Innovatia Accelerator’s information architecture experts ensure that your organization is outfitted with the latest technology to automate and standardize processes, in addition to handling management of change. Standardizing processes is essential for the power generation industry as an outstanding level of environmental performance and concern is expected.
AcceleratorKMS helps meet that expectation of performance through easy access to safety information and digital, trackable work progress. Management can always predict an incident before it happens and make adjustments to the procedures and content workers use on the fly, reducing the chance of an incident in the future.
EPCCL firms provide consulting and technology expertise to operators in unlocking value and ensuring safe operations. AcceleratorKMS assists in knowledge sharing and standardization of best practices while working with various operators, projects, technologies and countries.
AcceleratorKMS is the single source of truth for project related documentation including operating manuals, standards, procedures, and guidelines. Management can save time and money while working on facilities with similar design and equipment as project specific documentation can be created rapidly from standardized asset profiles and job templates. Edits performed in job templates will progress to all affected project documentation eliminating hundreds of man-hours traditionally spent.
Additionally, design documentation can be seamlessly transformed to construction and commissioning modes by leveraging reusable blocks and process flow mapping. Operators can take ownership of AcceleratorKMS and execute work digitally.
The AcceleratorKMS is consistently evaluated against other solutions and is generally accepted to be the most modern procedure lifecycle management solution during gap analysis and RFP processes.
AcceleratorKMS and Innovatia Accelerator are routinely evaluated in detail and the AcceleratorKMS has been deemed favourite by dozens of technical teams, user groups, and SME teams, as well as Innovatia Accelerator being the preferred company against competitors for the breadth of experience in knowledge management and exceptional track record with past clients.

This is real digital innovation for our front-line employees.
The Accelerator procedure is so much easier to follow, it’s clear and laid out perfectly. I’ve attached the muddled procedure we have been following over the years. I am very excited to use the Accelerator and I will gladly torch this old one! I loved working with your team! Please pass on my high fives to everyone.
It’s great to see our supplier delivering on the promised capabilities.
I view this new system as a massive leap forward. I provide a garbage can of low-quality content and it comes back a beautiful procedure.
Its about time we moved into the modern world, the old system was archaic.
