CPG IoT Environmental solution to help capture, analyze, and monitor energy usage data in real-time.

Spark IoT for CPG Environmental solution can provide an effective tool to assess long-term sustainability and environmental challenges. When combined with the client's production schedule, this solution can provide management with a cost of energy usage and a breakdown of energy cost per batch.

When the solution ingests data from the energy provider, it is often possible to determine when green energy was used which can lead to an improved understanding of which products used green energy and how much was used. This information can prove advantageous with the growing number of conscious consumers who are exhibiting unfaltering loyalty to brands who are able to prove their sustainability efforts.

  • How it works
  • DXC uses its consulting services to help customers determine how much value they can get from introducing IoT technologies into their factories. DXC then provides a discovery and design service that develops a tailored design and implementation plan for their specific factory and production lines.

    Selected factory floor machines are connected using power I/O modules which send data to AWS IoT SiteWise via AWS IoT Core. Amazon Managed Grafana is used to display real-time energy usage data to the end-user in the form of dashboards that have been tailored to the client's needs. Additionally, Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) buckets are used to ingest the production schedule and load it into AWS IoT SiteWise using AWS Lambda. AWS IoT SiteWise analyzes the power consumption data against the production schedule to determine whether select machines are running outside of the planned schedule, unnecessarily consuming energy and running up costs.
