SINGAPORE - Sembcorp Industries launched a digital management system that will help the company use predictive analytics in the operations of its utilities plants.

Known as the Global Asset Management System (GAMS), the digital tool will help consolidate Sembcorp's global operations to ensure optimal performance of its plants and provide automated alerts of abnormal occurences. It will also help in early detection of equipment problems and maximise plant efficiency by enhancing existing plant processes.

GAMS will enable the Group to manage its businesses, spread across 14 countries, reliably and efficiently, the company said in a release on Friday. In 2016, the Sembcorp GAMS was launched across the Group's operations in Singapore, India, Oman, the UAE and UK.

The launch ceremony at Jurong Island, where GAMS will be housed, was done by Ms Low Yen Ling, Parliamentary Secretary at the Ministry of Trade and Industry and Ministry of Education.

GAMS "is part and parcel of Sembcorp's continued investment in platforms and partnerships that enable us to strengthen our technological edge and stay globally competitive," group president and chief executive Mr Tang Kin Fei, said.
