11% increase in crushing productivity under higher humidity conditions
How Nebuluz helped a large mining company produce more during the rainy season
A customized expert system to achieve operational excellence with sustainable gains
Studies* indicate that 75% of control loops do not contribute to process improvement.
This inefficiency is extremely costly, and is often not treated or even identified by the plant managers.
Before the implementation of Nebuluz, a study is made on the existing control loops and strategies to identify the gaps, propose and execute improvement actions and, thus, amplify the gains of advanced control.

We carry out a preliminary analysis of the conditions and effectiveness of the existing instrumentation, combined with our extensive experience in processes in the most diverse segments of the industry.
If necessary, we assist in specifying additional instrumentation and develop virtual sensors (soft sensors) to maximize data quality and make the process more efficient.
Nebuluz was developed in a modularized and scalable way, using state-of-the-art technology that allows architectural flexibility to meet the most diverse deployment scenarios.
It is possible to perform fully on-premise, hybrid (edge) or completely cloud installations ensuring information security requirements and maximizing the use of available infrastructure to add new applications.
Most Specialty Systems rely on configuration and adjustments of pre-designed generic models to seek process optimization. Nebuluz, on the other hand, is flexible and modeled in a customized way to meet the particularities of your plant.
This provides a more robust control, able to deal efficiently with the constant changes and specificities of your process.
We know that the success of a specialist system depends very much on an adequate support of the solution after the delivery of the project. That's why we offer flexible support models, whether local or remote, to enable you to capture gains in a sustainable way, including in the long term.
In addition, the Nebuluz was built to be easy to understand and maintain. We offer support so that you can also support it without requiring too much knowledge of the system.
We use a co-creation process with the Operation, Process and Automation teams that considerably increases the level of engagement and trust of the people involved.
As a result, we have a high level of satisfaction with the Nebuluz, with an average utilisation rate of 93.5%. In many cases, the system has become the company's standard APC and an essential tool for Operation.
Track the efficiency of the Nebuluz and its process through interfaces developed specifically for your plant
The creation of new control rules is done quickly, in one place, without complication
Carry out the configuration and adjustment of control rules intuitively, without having to develop any lines of code
Common PCA's only make changes that do not interfere with PLC or supervisory, and relevant problems are no longer resolved
The Nebuluz corrects problems in this layer as well, drawing on our in-depth experience and enhancing its performance as a specialist system
Expert systems often rely on generic models for typical processes, and try to fit their process into these pre-designed models
In Nebuluz, regulatory and advanced control are customized according to the particularities of the plant, which makes the project more successful
Many times the support of the APCs requires new hiring from the supplier, and the constant changes in the plant cause the system to be disabled
The Nebuluz is extremely flexible to allow the maintenance of the desired results, which makes it one of the highest rates on the market
