A leading building materials manufacturing company:

  • $8B in annual revenue
  • 5K employees
  • 50+ locations


TT PSC partnered with a prominent building materials provider to implement an IoT Asset Monitoring and Notification System (AMU) at their production facility. The project’s goal was to optimize operational efficiency by proactively notifying operations of equipment-related challenges.


  • Avoid unplanned downtime: Minimize production losses due to equipment failures and suboptimal performance.
  • Inform maintenance of equipment status: Monitor essential parameters and trigger timely alerts for anomalous conditions.

Our Solution:

  • Data Collection and Processing: PLC data collection with Kepware, processing data in ThingWorx, including event detection and status value generation.
  • Proactive Notification System: Established a notification system for real-time email/SMS alerts upon event detection, with capabilities.
  • User-Friendly Interface: Leveraged AMU functionality for user interface screens accessible via standard web browsers.


  • Downtime Minimized: Achieved a significant reduction in production losses related to equipment failures.
  • Proactive Alerts: Enabled swift reaction to out-of-range or alarm conditions through real-time alerts.
  • Enhanced Efficiency: Stakeholders gained easy access to equipment status information, improving overall operational efficiency.
