Digital investment unlocking productivity improvements

Paint Line

BlueScope is mobilising a digital program to unlock the next wave of customer growth and productivity improvements across the business. The opportunities span manufacturing, supply chain, sales and marketing, support functions and the customer experience. Initially, we aim to leverage the use of emerging technologies and digital tools to focus on advanced analytics and automation. 

One key initiative is the development of an advanced analytics program across our coating and painting assets. The aim is to drive value through a step change improvement in performance, in addition to the investment in building new capabilities in digital technologies and advanced analytics that can be applied across our business over time. 

This digital coating line analytics program services both New Zealand and Australia. Already, a number of use cases have been identified to optimise performance by increasing throughput and reducing waste in the processes. These findings help BlueScope to continue to build sustainable capability in digital technologies across the business.
